Criminal negligence of officials of the Ministry of defence has spent more than 12 million hryvnias, having bought non-working for army helicopters

This information today, December 14, announced the Office for public relations and media General Prosecutor of Ukraine.

Constant scandals surrounding the Ministry of defense of Ukraine recently. Even in the summer, defense Minister Stepan Poltorak conducted inspections of supply of the Ukrainian military in the field. As the audit showed, the food fighters were absolutely unfit for human consumption.

And here’s a new scandal! Officials of the Ministry signed a contract with a private commercial entity for the purchase of helicopters for the army.

And all would be well, if not one “but”. Earlier, these helicopters were sold to a commercial entity by the Ministry of defence as surplus military property. In addition, the “iron bird” was sold almost as scrap metal, as its technical characteristics could not be used for its intended purpose.

Who and with what purpose made this dubious transaction on behalf of the defense Ministry, have yet to understand the consequence.

At the moment, the military Prosecutor’s office of Kherson garrison held pre-trial investigation under part 3 of article 425 of the criminal code of Ukraine (neglect of military service), providing punishment in the form of deprivation of liberty for a term from 5 to 7 years.

These enterprising military actions the state suffered damage amounting to about 12.7 million.
