Vasil Kisil & Partners successfully represented Valery Tomilenko in the case.

As reported in CEE Legal Matters and in others online publications Valery Tomilenko partecipated in a public fund embezzlement case before the High Anti-Corruption Court in Ukraine.

Valery Tomilenko, within the period from December 16, 2014, to April 29, 2015, was holding the position of the chairman of the board of the Public Joint-Stock Company State Food and Grain Corporation of Ukraine. In 2016 Mr. Tomilenko was arrested and further accused of embezzlement of public funds. The National Anti-Corruption Bureau and the Specialized Anti-corruption Prosecutor’s Office alleged that Mr. Tomilenko had colluded with two heads of private enterprises and entered into two fictitious contracts for the supply of corn. Since the PJSC SFGCU made the advance payment, and the contracts were not performed on time, this, according to the law enforcement agencies, caused damage of almost UAH 90 million
