Prime Minister of Ukraine Volodymyr Groysman initiated an appeal to law enforcement agencies, inter alia National Anti-Corruption Bureau of Ukraine (NABU) the General Prosecutor's Office (GPOU) of Ukraine in order to investigate cases of groundless blockage of state tenders. This was stated by the Head of Government during a meeting of the Cabinet of Ministers on August 18.
He also commissioned Maxim Nefyodov, First Deputy Minister of Economic Development and Trade of Ukraine, to hold a coordinating meeting on these issues and within three weeks to submit to the Government proposals concerning amendments to the legislation that would ensure transparency of tender procedures and close the door to abusive practice.
«There exist firms that have literally nothing except stamp. They have support in various government bodies and they take part in all tenders and then through complaints block all tenders and claim money. This information should first be considered by law enforcement authorities. This is a corruption scheme. People say about it on the ground as well as in the ministries. And they (shell companies) are trying to compromise the publicity of bidding procedures. I will appeal to NABU, GPOU, to the National Police - we must put an end to this issue», underlined the Head of Government.
