Sergey Kruk feels very confident, openly engaged in corrupt transactions. Confident, because it has a powerful “roof” in the President's Office, writes the ORD.
The “food chain” leading to the OP looks like this: Kruk – Deputy Minister of the Ministry of Internal Affairs Yevgeny Yenin – Deputy Chairman of the OP Oleg Tatarov is the head of the OP Andrey Yermak.
It was Yermak's powerful “roof” that untied Kruk's hands and made him untouched, despite the scandal that caused the SBU's report about an extensive criminal organization in the State Emergency Service.
Alexander Chekrigin, head of the Emergency Prevention Department. It was he who was recently searched by the SBU. First Deputy Maxim Gritsaenko, he is the main suspect in the investigation of the SBU, it is on him that the entire corruption chain, which the Security Service is currently investigating, is “sharpened”.

Journalists track more manifestations of corrupt activities of the leadership of the Service in Kruk's patrimony — Rivne region.
For example, on November 17, according to the results of the tender, the third state fire and rescue squad of the Main Directorate of the State Emergency Service in the Rivne region ordered an industrial washer and dryer for overalls for UAH 1.27 million. This is reported in the Prozorro system.
The only competitor offered the same kit one and a half times cheaper – for UAH 856,000. The customer decided that this was an “abnormally low price.” In response, the company indicated that five other units of the State Emergency Service ordered it the same kits without installation for UAH 556,000–590,000. And she explained that her proposed price of UAH 856 thousand is not just not abnormally low, but even higher than the previous auctions (transaction details).
Or in the same place, in the Rivne region, a training tower for training personnel fire and rescue units were ordered for 2.8 million hryvnia, although the metropolitan department of the State Emergency Service ordered the same tower for 1.5 million. Maybe it was precisely because of the unwillingness to enter into these corrupt deals that the head of the Kyiv central office paid with his position, which will be discussed below . So, in Rovno, this tower was ordered for almost twice the price. The construction company, which ordered the tower for Rivne rescuers – Lifebud Construction Campaign LLC – belongs to Vitaliy Koval, Chairman of the Regional State Administration and the second Kruk. /p>
