In Ukraine, the corporate rights and property of enterprises for the production of paper and cardboard for more than 1 billion hryvnias, owned by a former deputy of the State Duma of the Russian Federation, were arrested.

This is reported by the press services of the BEB and the Office of the Prosecutor General.

It is noted that BEB employees discovered 9 enterprises controlled by a former deputy of the State Duma of the Russian Federation, colonel of the Russian army, which carried out activities on the territory of Ukraine.
"In particular, a company engaged in publishing activities and the production of paper products was exposed for tax evasion on an especially large scale.. The investigation established that the officials evaded paying income tax and land tax, which led to the actual non-receipt of more than UAH 132 million to the budget," the report says.
It was also established that the employees of the company during 2019-2021 bought cars, non-residential premises, equipment, etc., which was owned by another company and was pledged in a bank, at low prices.

As part of the pre-trial investigation, the financial and economic activities of the said legal entity were investigated and it was established that one of the plants in Ukraine for a long time, under the guise of reimbursable financial assistance, transferred funds in the total amount of more than UAH 129 million to the said company.
"Such actions were aimed at concealing the origin of funds, that is, their actual legalization. As it turned out, these companies are interconnected," the BEB added.
