"The judge of the Solomiansky court, Maria Zelynska, chose a pretrial restriction for ex-member of the NCER Volodymyr Yevdokymov, one of the six suspects in the Rotterdam+ case. That is, detention or a miniscule bail of UAH 2 million," the Anti-Corruption Action Center said on Facebook.

DTEK employees were also notified of suspicion.
