About this reports SAP
The ex-people’s deputy was found guilty of abuse of power or official position (Part 2 of Article 364 of the Criminal Code of Ukraine).
He illegally received compensation for the costs of renting a room in a Kyiv hotel due to the alleged lack of his own housing in the capital.
It is noted that the deputy hid the fact that he inherited an apartment in Kyiv, and also did not refuse compensation for housing. As a result, UAH 361.5 thousand compensations were illegally paid from the state budget.
