KIEV, March 31. /TASS/. Ukraine’s Main Military Prosecutor’s Office said on Tuesday it had launched a criminal probe against the country’s National Guard and an exporter company over the illegal sale of two Mi-24R combat helicopters at considerably understated prices.
"The crime was exposed by investigators of the Main Military Prosecutor’s Office jointly with the operatives of the Security Council of Ukraine," investigators said.
"Officials of the National Guard of Ukraine and representatives of the exporter company forged acceptance and delivery certificates for these aircraft for the purpose of concealing their military designation," the Main Military Prosecutor’s Office said in a statement.
"These actions inflicted a damage of 5 million hryvnias [$217,000]," the statement said, without disclosing the country, to which the combat helicopters had been sold.
