ex-player Ukrainian national football team received a suspicion of committing a criminal offense from employees of the Bureau of Economic Security of Ukraine.
We are talking about an offense under Part 3 of Art. 212 of the Criminal Code of Ukraine – tax avoidance in especially large sizes. The suspect’s name has not been released.
BEB detectives found that in the period 2016-2018, the suspect received more than UAH 100 million. Acting deliberately, the violator hid his income, as a result of which he evaded paying personal income tax in the amount of almost UAH 16 million and a military tax in the amount of more than UAH 1 million.
In 2018, already being registered as an individual entrepreneur, he hid the real amount of income and deliberately evaded paying a single tax by more than UAH 1 million. The total amount of unpaid funds to the budget of Ukraine is more than UAH 18.2 million.
Pre-trial investigation of criminal proceedings on the grounds of offenses under Part 3 of Art. 209 of the Criminal Code of Ukraine (legalization of property obtained by criminal means) and part 3 of Art. 212 of the Criminal Code of Ukraine (tax evasion) is carried out by detectives of the Main Division of Detectives of the Bureau of Economic Security of Ukraine under the procedural guidance of prosecutors of the Office of the Prosecutor General.
