At a time when Ukrainians are making an all-out effort to support the Ukrainian Army by raising funds, the superintendent of the food warehouse of one of the military units of Ministry of Defense in the Mykolayiv Region was selling American army rations through an intermediary.

After receiving information about this, Ukrainian Economic Crimes Investigation Service personnel purchased 45 sets of the American MRE rations, earmarked for the Ukrainian Ministry of Defense in accordance with an agreement between the Ukrainian and US governments. The seller was detained and the rations confiscated.

During questioning the man advised that he kept in touch with the soldier who sold the rations by mobile phone. The identity of the seller has been confirmed. He was the superintendent of the food warehouse of one of the military units. Law enforcement officials have started criminal procedures in accordance with section 198 of the Ukrainian Criminal Code (acquisition, storage, or disposal of illegally acquired property). The investigation continues.

  1. As your new President said yesterday, no one can put a hand out and conversely no one can put anything into those hands. I hope this fellow is prosecuted to the hilt so that people will get the drift that on the issue of graft and corruption the only way to stop it is to turn these people into the justice system.

    Most people don’t like “telling” on others but this is a huge exception because until the corruption is washed away, Ukraine will never triumph.

    Phone numbers for reporting incidents ought to be plastered from one end of Ukraine to the other.

  2. I feel that corruption related to the armed forces of Ukraine should be handled under military justice, rather than civil. This is more likely to be harsh and somewhat peremptory, as military justice usually is. Very appropriate, in this case. As this scumbag’s activity is likely to have far-reaching affects on the willingness of other nations to help, and as corruption like this is clearly the reason Ukraine isn’t getting any military aid more lethal than “food and blankets”, a firing squad isn’t too harsh here, in my opinion. Huge damage, huge consequences. Huge lesson for others.
