Under the procedural guidance of prosecutors of the Office of the Prosecutor General, employees of the Bureau of Economic Security conduct a pre-trial investigation in criminal proceedings against officials of one of the enterprises on legalization (laundering) of criminally obtained property, tax evasion, and forgery.

It is established that the employees of the Ukrainian enterprise tried to illegally withdraw 1.2 million US dollars abroad to the account of the Bulgarian enterprise during martial law.

Militiamen exposed the scheme of the attempt of withdrawal of means based on the pretended transaction of import of agricultural products through the sea terminal of Nikolaev. The agreement was concluded in March 2022 during active hostilities in the Mykolaiv area. This prevented the actual transshipment of cargo in the ports of the region and testifies to the fictitiousness of this agreement and attempts to legalize funds.

At the request of prosecutors from the Office of the Prosecutor General, the court seized $ 1.2 million in the bank accounts of the Ukrainian company. The pre-trial investigation is ongoing.
