Ukrainian Prosecutor General's Office confirms existence of criminal case into PM Yatseniuk's 'improper advantage' of $3 mln

The Ukrainian Prosecutor General's Office has confirmed the existence of a criminal case into the allegations that Prime Minister Arseniy Yatseniuk had received a $3-million bribe, for appointing Volodymyr Ischuk head of the Broadcasting, Radiocommunications, and Television Concern (BRT Concern).

In response to an inquiry by Dmytro Dobrodomov, an unaffiliated parliamentarian and a member of the parliamentary anti-corruption committee, a copy of which the People's Control non-governmental organization has posted on its website, the Prosecutor General's Office said its department for investigations in the government service and property field had continued a pre-trial investigation into a criminal case, under Ukrainian Criminal Code Article 368 Part 4, on the allegations that Yatseniuk enjoyed improper advantage of $3 million for appointing Ischuk head of the BRT Concern.

The pre-trial investigation is under way, it said.

"I have to inform at the same time that no one has been notified of being suspected of committing a criminal offence under Ukrainian Criminal Code Article 368 Part 4," the Prosecutor General's Office said in the response signed by acting Prosecutor General Yuriy Sevruk.
