Vitalii Shabunin, head of the Anti-Corruption Action Centre, has reported that Ukraine’s State Bureau of Investigation has filed two criminal proceedings against him.

Quote: "Tatarovʼs State Bureau of Investigation is registering criminal proceedings against me for ‘evading military service’ – even though I was mobilised at my own request to the Armed Forces of Ukraine in the early days of the war. [Oleh Tatarov, now the Deputy Head of the President's Office, served during Viktor Yanukovych’s presidency and is associated with the political persecution of anti-government protesters during the Revolution of Dignity in 2014 – ed.]


Tatarovʼs same State Bureau of Investigation is registering another proceeding for ‘falsifying documents from the National Agency on Corruption Prevention (NACP)’ – even though the NACP has electronic document management, so this cannot be done.

Both cases were opened at the request of the ‘lawyer’ Rostyslav Kravets. He is the linchpin of the Kremlin's network of Telegram channels, as well as being a henchman of Pavlo Vovk [head of the Kyiv District Administrative Court], who was supposed to legitimise Yanukovych [as President of Ukraine] after the capture of Kyiv [by the Russians during the full-scale invasion]."

Details: Shabunin added that "it's hard to imagine more idiotic criminal proceedings". He noted that these proceedings can only be used in attempts to discredit him in the media, but "it will turn out to be as pathetic as ever".
