From 2005 to 2007 Anatoly Gritsenko has held the position of Minister of defense of Ukraine. He was Minister in three governments in a row – Yulia Tymoshenko, Yuriy Yekhanurov and Viktor Yanukovych. He remembered Ukrainians that under the guise of reform, “sold out” half of the army. But did it, like as not from selfish motives and in the belief that such a large Soviet military legacy is no longer necessary in the modern world. Still rake in the Ukrainian courts of the cases connected with the sale and transfer of property and land once owned by the military.
We are talking about the group’s activities “Voentorgservis”, which was created in 2005, when he was Minister of defence Anatoly Gritsenko, to improve the efficiency of management of military assets. In fact, this enterprise has become a “window of opportunity” for unscrupulous dealers from defense to theft of property and land that belonged to the military Department.
In the fall of 2017 Gosudarstva checked the activities of this group from 2005 to September 2017. The horror comes through even through the dry language of the report of the auditors – the complete lack of development strategy, unreliable accounting, lack of control of branches and entrusted with the property, staff turnover, and a lot more various other troubles. But on balance of this enterprise is enormous material values of the state. The auditors checked the 753 real estate and found that in the period from 2006 to 2013, the Group made a disposal of property without the consent of the state property Fund in the amount of UAH 30 million with an area of 32 thousand square meters and the destruction of 155 objects with an area of 75.7 thousand square meters, in the amount of 21.6 million hryvnia. SAP has opened criminal proceedings on the results of the audit. Before it was dismissed the next CEO of the group Anatoly Stir, and the head of the Odessa branch of the group came under investigation for bribery 75 thousand dollars.
The case squandering of military equipment delivered to the stream during Anatoly Gritsenko-Minister, is still alive and well. And some cases of “withdrawal” of military equipment directly related to his Ministerial activities.
