In Kirovohrad region law enforcers revealed managers of the state enterprise Vostochniy Mining and Processing Works on buying metallurgical slag wastes at inflated prices.
VostGOK is the largest in Europe and the only in Ukraine extractor of uranium ore and producer of uranium concentrate.
According to the Economical Security Bureau, the enterprise announced tenders to buy raw materials, the winners of which were faux companies, that acted as middlemen, while slag wastes were bought directly from manufacturers. Thus, expenses were increased, but taxes minimized.
As a result, the state received damages of 1.5 million UAH. (Ukrainian metal)
