The press service of the Poltava Regional Prosecutor's Office reported that 26 employees of Ukrgazvydobuvannya had stolen almost 100 tons of diesel fuel.
According to the investigation, employees of one of the structural divisions of JSC Ukrgazvydobuvannya appropriated diesel fuel, which was allocated for the functioning of technological transport and special equipment.
“To conceal criminal activity, the employees compiled and used knowingly false official documents on refueling and using fuel when performing work: invoices, statements for the release of petroleum products, driver reports,” the message says.
Diesel fuel was transported to filling stations located on the territory of the Poltava region, where it was sold to the population. The proceeds from the sale were distributed among the participants in the illegal scheme.
Thus, during 2018-2019, the members of the group appropriated almost 100 tons of diesel fuel, causing the company more than UAH 830 thousand in losses.
As reported, Naftogaz exposed a gas theft scheme in Poltava region.
