A former manager at Ukrtatnafta, the largest producer of oil and gas in Ukraine, who is suspected of tax evasion was detained on court orders after failing to make bail, Ukraine’s Financial Investigations Service reported via Facebook on Feb. 24.
The suspect had an option to pay a bail of nearly UAH 200 million ($5.5 million), but the payment wasn’t made.
Earlier, Ukraine’s SBU security service announced it has uncovered a criminal scheme that has brought about UAH 40 billion (about $1.1 billion) of illicit revenue to Ukrtatnafta and Ukrnafta. The announcement was made after law enforcement raided the property of Ukrainian oligarch Ihor Kolomoisky.
Later, FIS detectives notified the head of Ukrtatnafta of suspicion of evading UAH 606 million (about $16.5 million) in excise duties.
