The former head of the district state administration of Kyiv and the head of the police department of the capital's River Port illegally acquired expensive assets. To hide their wealth, they recorded purchases on their wives.

This was reported by the National Agency for the Prevention of Corruption on May 26.

The experts analyzed the declaration of the ex-head of the district administration of the capital and noticed a note that his wife received ownership of two premises of non-residential fund worth more than 2.5 million hryvnias.

The official's wife also somehow managed to buy a luxury car Mercedes-Benz for 3 million hryvnias.

The declarant assured that everything was purchased with money earned from 2020 to 2021.

But the obtained data indicate that they did not have the funds to purchase the property.

Another owner of unexpected wealth was the wife of the head of the police department of the River Port. In this case, the declarant did not come up with anything better than to lie about a millionaire grandmother who decided to give his wife an apartment for 7 million hryvnias in her old age.

However, NACP monitoring of the employee's lifestyle established that the grandmother could not have such funds.

The materials collected by the detectives were sent to the Investigative Anti-Corruption Prosecutor's Office to resolve the issue of initiating a trial in order to seize illegally obtained property in favor of Ukraine.

Recall that on May 15, the National Anti-Corruption Bureau announced the exposure of a large-scale corruption case in the Supreme Court. Later it became known that none other than the chairman of the Supreme Court Vsevolod Knyazev himself was burned on a bribe. He was caught receiving a bribe of $2.7 million.

According to media reports, Knyazev allegedly received money from people who advocated a court decision in favor of oligarch Konstantin Zhevago.
