KIEV, April 2. /TASS/. Former head of Ukraine’s state service responsible for handling emergency situations, Sergey Bochkovsky, has been released from custody, reports the Ukrainian TSN TV channel.
The lawyer said the former official accused of using fraudulent schemes in carrying out state purchases has paid a bail of around $51,000.
Earlier, it was reported that Bochkovsky's deputy, Vasily Stoyetsky, had also been released on bail.
Sergey Bochkovsky and Vasily Stoyetsky were arrested for using fraudulent schemes in carrying out state purchases. Both were handcuffed at a meeting of the Cabinet with a group of journalists watching. Dozens of TV cameras were on at the moment.
According to Interior Minister Arsen Avakov, state purchases were carried out through private companies, which eventually transferred the proceeds to the accounts of Bochkovsky’s and Stoyetsky’s companies in Jersey Island.
