The State Bureau of Investigation has established a Ukrainian building materials company controlled by Russian oligarch Andrey Molchanov. He is a former member of the “Federation Council of the Federal Assembly of the Russian Federation”, close to the occupying power and pays large taxes to the budget of the aggressor country.
The State Bureau of Investigation employees have established that the Kyiv region’s production is part of the Russian oligarch’s holding. The profit received by the Ukrainian company was sent in the form of dividends and royalties to the so-called “parent company” of the Russian Federation.
Russia’s commercial structure is a major taxpayer in the aggressor country. Therefore, at the expense of the funds received from the Ukrainian society, taxes, and fees were paid to the budget of the occupying country; its power bloc and defense-industrial complex were financed during the aggression against our state.
Employees of the State Bureau of Investigation conducted a set of investigative actions to document the facts of illegal activities. The searches were conducted at the residences of the director and accountants, offices, and industrial facilities of the Russian capital-related enterprise.
