The suspect, named by Ukrainian media as Oleksandr Kozlovsky, worked as the head of an army unit that procured food for Ukrainian soldiers.

They detained a high-ranking representative of the Ukrainian armed forces, accused of embezzling more than a million dollars from the money intended for the purchase of food for the armed forces. Investigators announced it on Thursday. The report comes from the AFP news agency.

“In the years 2022 to 2023, the official illegally acquired assets worth nearly 58 million hryvnias ($1.5 million),” the State Investigation Agency said.

Instead of using the money for food for the army, according to the authority, he used it to buy various things, including an apartment in Kyiv, a dozen plots of land and a car.

Ukrainian anti-corruption activists from the investigative center “Our Money” (Our Money) wrote on their website that Kozlovsky tunnelled money through private companies and family members, while not delivering food.

After Russia’s invasion of Ukraine in February 2022, President Volodymyr Zelenskyi has repeatedly pledged to fight corruption in Ukraine, where corruption was rampant even before the war.
