The prosecutor of the SAPO asks to select a preventive measure in the form of detention with the possibility of bail in the amount of UAH 365 million for the ex-chairman of the board of Naftogaz Andriy Kobolev.

This was reported by the SAPO press service.

He is suspected of abusing his official position, due to the fact that he wrote out bonuses for more than UAH 229 million.

The court hearing on the selection of a preventive measure was scheduled for January 19.

  • The investigation established that in May 2018, Kobolev, contrary to the law, issued an order to reward the companyʼs employees, on the basis of which he was paid almost 261 million hryvnias for extraordinary achievements. It is about the positive decision of the Stockholm Arbitration in the gas case of Ukraine against Russia.
