The president’s team exposed a corrupt scheme in the defense sector.

Over five years, about $30 million has been transferred to offshore companies in a corruption scheme in the defense sector, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky said at the National Council meeting on anti-corruption policy, Ukrinform reported.

“You have heard a loud story about corruption in the state concern Ukroboronprom.’ Recently, we handed over to the law enforcement agencies another corruption scheme in the defense industry. It turned out that during five years of the previous government’s activity, the special exporters transferred with the help of some doubtful contracts about $30 million to the offshore companies account for ostensibly provided services,” Zelensky said.
