The Ukrainian Prosecutor General's Office (PGO) has confirmed that head of the political council of the UKROP party Hennadiy Korban has been notified of being suspected of committing crimes under four articles of the Criminal Code of Ukraine.
PGO prosecutor Vladyslav Kutsenko gave this confirmation during a joint briefing of the Security Service of Ukraine (SBU) and the PGO in Kyiv on Sunday while reporting about the results of a large-scale special operation in Dnipropetrovsk.
According to him, Korban was charged under three articles of the Criminal Code: Article 255 (formation of an organized criminal organization), Article 191 (misappropriation, embezzlement of property) and Article 349 (taking a government official or a law enforcement officer as a hostage).
Kutsenko added that the charges against Korban may change and that Korban was notified of the suspicion on October 31.
PGO investigator Mykola Makeyev subsequently clarified that the charges against Korban also include misappropriation of a vehicle (Article 289 of the Criminal Code of Ukraine).
