Security Services Ukraine revealed a scheme to allocate $ 17 million by commercial bank owners and their further withdrawal abroad. This was reported by the SBU press service on Wednesday, June 12.
The money was received from the NBU as refinancing.

At the conclusions of specialists, transactions result in damage to the state in the amount of more than 436 million UAH." listed in the press service.
The SBU raised suspicions with the head of the PJSC. Investigations and operational actions regarding other people involved in the waste of NBU refinancing funds continue.
Bank assets transferred to the management of the National Agency of Ukraine for the identification, search and management of assets obtained from corruption crimes.
