NABU probing into bankrupt banks` UAH 10 bln siphoned to tax havens

Director of the National Anti-Corruption Bureau of Ukraine (NABU) Artem Sytnyk announces an investigation into the siphoning of nearly UAH 10 billion in Ukrainian bankrupt banks` assets to tax havens, according to an UNIAN correspondent.
”The anti-corruption bureau has initiated proceedings, and now we actually have enough resources to carry out such large-scale investigations. This investigation concerns bankrupt banks` assets siphoned via foreign banks to offshore countries,” Sytnyk said at a government meeting on Wednesday during debates on the implementation of anti-corruption policy in Ukraine.
According to Sytnyk, the amount of the funds moved offshore has hit almost UAH 10 billion. Part of this sum ”includes assets received as refinancing provided to the banks that have been liquidated.”
