New Energy Ukraine LLC on December 19 participation in the auction of the State Customs Service of Ukraine for the supply of electricity next year for the expected amount of UAH 8 million. This is reported in the Prozorro system, Our Money writes.
New Energy Ukraine lost the auction to Ukr Gas Resource Andrey Kuchkov, the son-in-law of the fugitive ex-Minister of Ecology Mykola Zlochevsky (now hiding abroad from a criminal investigation into an attempt to bribe the leadership of NABU and SAPO). Ukr Gas Resource won the auction with an offer of UAH 7.5 million and a decision is expected to conclude a contract with it.
In turn, New Energy Ukraine appears in another NABU production. In November, the Supreme Anti-Corruption Court decided to seize UAH 657 million on the company's accounts for the purpose of further special confiscation.
The arrest was made in the framework of criminal proceedings on the sale of electricity during February-April 2022 in the interests of United Energy LLC, which contacts Igor Kolomoisky.
According to the investigation, Ukrenergo officials sold electricity to the company, despite the fact that it was in a state of “default”, which led to the formation of bad debt.
United Energy subsequently resold the electricity and withdrew the money. Part of the amount ended up on the accounts of New Energy Ukraine, which, according to the investigation, was under the control of United Energy officials for a long time.
The investigation believes that New Energy Ukraine understood that the money received from United Energy, were obtained as a result of a criminal offense, knowingly took part in their legalization and began to use them in economic activities in order to generate income.
The position of New Energy Ukraine is that the company's debt to Ukrenergo has nothing to do with New Energy Ukraine as a counterparty. Also, the debt in the amount of UAH 1.7 billion is not a proven fact and has not been confirmed by the court.»
The judges who considered the NABU petition were not convinced by these arguments. The money was arrested on November 17, and on December 1, this decision was confirmed by the Court of Appeal.
