In the framework of the implementation of measures for counterintelligence protection of the state's interests in the field of economic security, the Security Service of Ukraine prevented illegal alienation of communal property belonging to the energy infrastructure of the Cherkasy region.
Operatives of the special service established that the state-authorized liquidator of the bankrupt enterprise illegally tendered a complex of electric grids in Smila. The official supplied forged data to the Ministry of Economic Development and Trade of Ukraine. The attacker included into the integral property complex of the bankrupt company the electrical networks and equipment, which is in communal ownership and is included in the unified system of energy supply of the city.

Within the framework of initiated criminal proceedings, the property complex was arrested. The liquidator of state enterprise was served a notice of suspicion of committing a crime stipulated by Part 3 Art. 365-2 of the Criminal Code of Ukraine. The issue of choosing a measure of restraint for the involved person is being decided.
