Former Ukrainian Minister of Economy faces criminal charges

The Prosecutor General (Attorney General) of Ukraine commenced a criminal action against former Minister of Economy Bogdan Danilishin for “abuse of power or office” under Part 2, Section 364 of the Ukrainian Penal Code. The case involves public procurement for a terminal construction project at the international airport “Borispol” (a state enterprise) in Kiev. Mr. Danilishin allegedly approved an unlawful tender with only one participant that resulted in damages to the government totaling 4.5 mln. UAH. Procurement for the terminal’s parking facility was tendered to one subcontractor because the general contractor was unable to finish the project within the allocated timeframe. The Prosecutor General is currently investigating the airport officials’ involvement in the subject tender.
