The team of attorneys of VB PARTNERS defends a former member of the Board of the National Bank of Ukraine (NBU) in criminal proceedings concerning the issuance of a stabilization loan for the VAB bank in the amount of UAH 1,2 billion.

Within the framework of this case, the Client was detained by the National Anti-Corruption Bureau of Ukraine officials on suspicion of aiding and abetting funds and placed in a pre-trial detention center. The attorneys managed to release the NBU top manager under pledge in the amount of UAH 15 million as soon as possible. At the same time, the prosecutor’s office demanded at least UAH 25 million.

However, UAH 15 million is a huge amount of money and we managed to achieve review and reduction of the amount of pledge to UAH 5 million. We have shown that such a preventive measure is discriminatory against the Client.

The team of attorneys of VB PARTNERS, led by Denys Bugay and Oleksandr Lukianenko, is continuing its active work and intends to prove the Client’s innocence in the crime.

«The case materials do not contain any evidence of the Client’s involvement in the crime and the entire position of the prosecution is based only on assumptions. At the same time, the investigators attempted to blackmail and pressure the Client to obtain evidence for the prosecution. All illegal actions of law enforcement agencies will be the subject of a separate investigation», – said Oleksandr Lukianenko.
