Volodymyr Saldo, a Kremlin puppet and head of the Russian invasion force’s occupation administration in Kherson failed to pay UAH 60 million in taxes, the Economic Security Bureau of Ukraine or ESBU reported on Nov. 2.

In 2001-2022, Saldo worked in various positions in state bodies, and in 2018 he registered ownership of a hotel, a multi-story building, and land plots, according to a bureau statement. The market value of real estate exceeds the amount of income that Saldo officially received from 2010 to 2018 by almost UAH 310 million (more than 200 times).

“Therefore, the budget of Ukraine lost more than UAH 60 million from the evasion of payment of personal income tax and military duty,” the ESBU added.

Saldo’s name is not mentioned in the report, however it is stated that in March 2022he agreed to cooperate with the Russian terrorist regime and was “appointed” as the “head” of the Kremlin administration of Kherson Oblast.

Before that he was a member of the now banned pro-Russian OPFL (The Opposition Platform for Life) political party, and a member of parliament.

The pre-trial investigation into his case is being carried out within the framework of a criminal case under Part 3 of Art. 212 of the Criminal Code of Ukraine (tax evasion).
