The Security Service of Ukraine suspects businessman Igor Kolomoisky of fraud and legalization of property obtained by criminal means. This was reported on the department’s telegram channel.
According to investigators, during 2013-2020, Kolomoisky “legalized more than half a billion hryvnia by transferring them abroad, using the infrastructure of controlled banking institutions.” The Office of the Prosecutor General of Ukraine clarified that we are talking about an amount of more than 570 million hryvnia.

In February, the Security Service of Ukraine and the Bureau of Economic Security searched Kolomoisky’s home. The searches were related to alleged fraud surrounding the Ukrnafta and Ukrtatnafta companies. At the same time, Kolomoisky’s name was not mentioned in the SBU press release.
