Details of Ukroboronprom affair: special services covered up Poroshenko’s contraband
This is the topic of the final part of Bihus.Info investigation about corruption in the defense sector and implication of law-enforcement agencies.
Journalists found out that persons close to Poroshenko smuggled machine elements from Russia to Ukraine and then sold to the Ministry of Defense in extra charge. According to Bihus.Info, law-enforcement agencies had been known about this scheme long ago. But for taking bribes they turn a blind eye to frauds of the president's entourage.
Bihus.Info says that tax inspectorate, police, the SBU, public prosecutor's office and the National Anti-Corruption Bureau of Ukraine (NABU) “opened an inquiry and then hid it or softened the issue.” It comes with a price.
