The Supreme Anti-Corruption Court (SAC) has chosen the First Deputy Minister of Agricultural Policy, Taras Vysotsky, as a precautionary measure in the form of a bail of 805,000 hryvnias. It reports Transparency International.

Duration of obligations — until October 24, 2023. Vysotskyi must post bail within 5 days.

Vysotskyi was also ordered to:

  • arrive at the request of the detective, the prosecutor and the court;
  • not to leave from Kyiv without permission;
  • notify the detective, prosecutor or court about a change of residence and work;
  • not communicate with another suspect — by the Deputy Minister of Economy Oleksandr Hryban and witnesses;
  • hand over foreign passports and other documents that allow you to cross the border.

The Specialized Anti-Corruption Prosecutor's Office (SAP) asked to arrest Vysotskyi with the right to leave on a bail of 5 million hryvnias.

BAGNET reminds that on August 24, the National Anti-Corruption Bureau reported that it had exposed Vysotskyi and former Deputy Minister of Economy Oleksandr Hryban for embezzlement of 62 million hryvnias during procurement of products for humanitarian aid.

They were bought at the expense of “Ukrzaliznytsia” at 2-3 times inflated prices through a controlled intermediary firm.
