Son of first deputy to Secretary of National security and defense council will sue Bihus.Info
Ihor Hladkovskiy, son of the First deputy to the Secretary of the National security and defense council Oleh Hladkovskyi is to sue the Bihus.Info for information they spread in the journalistic investigation on corruption within the defense field, as he told to Interfax-Ukraine. “All charges are ungrounded and the so-called correspondence is fake”, Hladkovskyi told. He won’t demand any pecuniary damage, only to dismiss all untruthful information, as he said. The investigation made public by Bihus.Info on February 25th revealed that Ihor Hladkovskyi and his partners had been providing double or even four times higher overcharged contraband pieces and parts from Ukrainian military units through some front companies. The journalists told that in the Autumn 2018, they had received an anonymous letter citing the participants of those deals and after having verified this information, the journalists came to conclusion these facts were truth. As to Bihus.Info the embezzlement was up to 250 millions of hryvnias ($ 9 millions) at least. The authors of investigation claimed Oleg Hladkovskyi would be involved to these deals, as in the past he was a business partner of Petro Poroshenko, actual head of state, and Pavlo Bukin, head of public corporate group Ukroboronprom (Ukrainian defense industry) and other heads of enterprises and functionaries. IMI informed earlier the journalist Denys Bihus for Bihus.Info claimed its journalists are under surveillance, the surveikllance would be caused, as to him, by the investigation made by its journalist Lesya Ivanova on corruption at defense sector.
