NABU loses ex-head of the National Bank Kirill Shevchenko

The National Anti-Corruption Bureau put on the wanted list three Ukrgasbank officials allegedly involved in the embezzlement more than 200 million UAH, including the former head of the National Bank of Ukraine Kirill Shevchenko. This was reported by the press service of NABU.

"We are talking about the ex-chairman of the board of Ukrgasbank, one of the deputies of Ukrgasbank and the deputy director of the department for working with corporate VIP clients of this state institution", - the report says.

The Bureau explained that they were informed about the suspicion in early October, but on a special basis, since the location of these persons was unknown. But, according to NABU, since then, the suspects have ignored calls to the investigator, which is why they were put on the wanted list.

Recall that the chief banker of Ukraine Kirill Shevchenko announced he was retiring on October 4, citing health reasons. And two days after that, just on the day when Parliament voted for his resignation, NABU and SAPO announced suspicion at that time to the head of the National Bank.

On the same day the situation Shevchenko himself commented, who has publicly stated that he is undergoing medical treatment abroad, and learned about the suspicion from the media. But, it is worth noting that since then no information, neither about the state of health, nor about the whereabouts of Kirill Shevchenko, at least in his social networks, did not appear.

According to Shevchenko, the resumption of the investigation into the Ukrgasbank case is "political persecution and "settlement of scores". In its comments on Facebook, he stated that he repeatedly blackmailed "revitalization" of this case, trying to persuade him to solutions that he considers "harmful to the financial stability of the state." Moreover, according to Shevchenko, there are other factors which testify to "extra-procedural nature of such prosecution", but at that time he did not want to voice them.

In addition to Kirill Shevchenko, he was put on the wanted list Denis Chernyshov, which with September 2019 to March 2020 was an adviser to the Chairman of the Board of JSB "Ukrgasbank", and since March 25, 2020 - Member of the Board and Deputy Chairman of the Board of the same bank.

The third wanted was also the deputy director of the department for work with corporate VIP clients Elena Khmelenko.

According to NABU, all three are involved in the Ukrgasbank case and are suspected of embezzling more than UAH 200 million.
