"The Security Service of Ukraine is conducting a pretrial investigation in criminal proceedings on the sale of electricity by Centrenergo in various segments of the market generated by the state-owned enterprise at prices 20-30% lower than the cost of its production. According to investigators, this led to damage and embezzlement of the company's assets in the amount of almost $ 8 (UAH 225 million)," the message reads.

Searches took place in the capital's Millennium business center.

As we reported earlier, American law enforcers detained members of criminal gang, which stole 30 million US dollars from vaults in Ukraine and then legalized them in the U.S.

Those behind the gang are citizens of Ukraine who also hold the American passports. There are at least 25 people involved in the organization.

In 2015-2016 alone, the culprits stole money from 51 people; the suspects sneaked some USD 606,000 from their bank vaults. To get the criminals, Ukrainian policemen tightly cooperated with their colleagues in various countries such as Latvia, Moldova, Macedonia, Georgia, Azerbaijan, Uzbekistan and the U.S. They hunted for this gang for three years.
