Poroshenko has threatened to “cut the hands off” thieves in the army
Armed forces – the subject of “personal concern” of the President
“The position of the first – will not allow anyone to steal in the army. Those who will steal in the army – cut off his hands. The position of President. The army is the subject of my personal concerns, the army is one of our obvious achievements in three years – this was done with my efforts to get the Minister of defence, the Ministry of defence, the manual Razstava, volunteers and volunteer landing, when it was planted in the most difficult times in 2014, in order to prevent corruption,” – said Poroshenko.
The President praised the fact that the suspect gave to the police.
“The position of the second – I welcome any suspicion of corruption is passed on to law enforcement. Regardless, NABOO, SAP, GPU, SBU, where jurisdiction – Natspolitsiya, instead of to run on television, instead of doing the politicking, the only thing I’m waiting for – immediate transmission to law enforcement authorities, including the NEB. This is the right citizenship”, – said the head of state.
He noted that the investigation has to be completed in the shortest possible time to represent the society and to bring to trial.
“Any delay, when business is conducted with the investigation 3-4 years, are unacceptable. It destroys the logic of the fight against corruption”, – said Poroshenko.
Recall, October 11 the employees of the NABU and SAP detained the Deputy Minister of defence of Ukraine Igor Pavlovsky and the Director of the Department of public procurement and delivery of material resources of the Ministry Vladimir Gulevich.
They are suspected of involvement in the corruption scheme of embezzlement of public funds in excess of 149 million hryvnia for the purchase of fuel for the Ministry of defense of Ukraine.
