Since the start of the full-scale invasion, dealers have illegally exported nearly 200,000 units.
To hide the export, a company registered in the EU was involved, which, according to the Ukrainian special service, cooperates with the occupation authorities of Donetsk and Luhansk oblasts.
The foreign company purchased the products of the Ukrainian plant allegedly for its own needs, and then shipped them to the end customers in Russia.
Criminal proceedings have been initiated under Part 4 of Art. 111-1 of the Criminal Code of Ukraine (assistance in economic activity in cooperation with the aggressor state).
The investigation is ongoing. The head of the Volyn-based manufacturing enterprise will be charged.
