The high-profile corruption case on procurement of the Ministry of Defense during the war for 1.7 billion hryvnias at Thanos Technology was instructed to investigate the scandalous employee of the Office of the Prosecutor General Igor Cherny. The editors of 368.media found out about this by analyzing the relevant court rulings in this case.
After the start of the invasion, from March 2 to March 18, the Ministry of Defense transferred 1.7 billion hryvnias to the company for the purchase of military goods: ballistic protective vests, tactical military camouflage uniforms and ballistic helmets. The contractor bought foreign currency to pay non-residents for critical imports. However, the value of the property was inflated, and foreign residents turned out to be fictitious.
According to the case file, the then director of the company, Mykola Petrenko, embezzled UAH 43.16 million from March to May 2022, which was received by the company as an advance payment under an agreement with the Ministry of Defense for the purchase of military goods: protective ammunition, uniforms, shoes and food packages Violations were established by the State Financial Monitoring Service. The money was transferred to the accounts of five individual entrepreneurs as payment for legal and consulting services. We wrote about this case in detail. You can read about it at the link:

However, recently we found out new details of the case. It turned out that the investigation was entrusted to the prosecutor for the management of procedural management of the pre-trial investigation into criminal proceedings on organized crime of the Department for Supervision of Compliance with Laws by the Police and Bodies Fighting Organized and Transnational Crime of the Office of the Prosecutor General, Igor Cherny. This gentleman is known for immediately blocking the funds of companies through the courts as part of criminal investigations into tax evasion. We have already published materials about the work of this prosecutor.

That is, despite the high-profile case, there are still no suspects. And the investigation has been going on for the 8th month already, but Thanos Technology's accounts are still under arrest.
A similar story happened with the investigation into the case of corruption purchases of the Odessa City Hall during the war. We are talking about criminal proceedings No. 12022000000000435 under Part 5 of Art. 191 of the Criminal Code, the leading main investigation department of the National Police. We are talking about fraud in the Odessa City Operational Headquarters with the purchase of equipment and military uniforms for territorial defense units and volunteer formations. There are still no suspects there either.
Thus, we can conclude that the task of the prosecutor is not to ensure the inevitability of punishment, but, on the contrary, to create conditions for creating corruption conditions. The editors of 368.media appeal to all victims of the activities of the prosecutor to obtain additional facts of his corrupt activities.
