State Bureau of Investigation employees completed a pre-trial investigation into the head of the Odesa-automobile customs post, who systematically received bribes from commercial structures for accelerated customs clearance of cars. The indictment was sent to the court.

The pre-trial investigation established that during 2020-2021 the official systematically received money from businessmen. For bribes, he provided an illegal influence on the officials of the customs posts for unhindered registration of vehicles. The attacker received the money in restaurants in the very center of Odessa. Several facts of an official receiving an illegal benefit have been documented. He was caught while accepting a bribe for customs clearance of 36 cars.
