Criminal record and sanctions:

On 7 July 2015, Military Prosecutor’s Office registered criminal proceedings No. 42015000000001349 on possible embezzlement of state funds during the procurement of backpacks by the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Ukraine (contracts of 25 February 2015). As of March 2016, the case was investigated by the National Anti-Corruption Bureau of Ukraine.

On 31 October 2017б detectives of the National Anti-Corruption Bureau of Ukraine took Arsen Avakov’s son Оlexander Avakov in custody upon suspicion in incitement of the Deputy Minister of Internal Affairs of Ukraine Serhiy Chebotar to embezzlement of funds by abuse of office committed by prior conspiracy in particularly large amounts. The third suspect was the Kharkiv entrepreneur Volodymir Lytvyn.

On 1 November 2017, the court chose a preventive measure for Oleksandr Avakov in the form of a personal obligation. (text of court decision).

According to the web-site information of 'Sudovyi reporter', Solomyansky court of Kyiv seized his apartments, parking spaces and stocks in criminal proceeding №42015000000001349. Also Oleksandr Avakov's stocks (43,7%) of the join-stock company 'Investor' were seized. 

According to the version of the National Anti-Corruption Bureau of UkraineOleksandr Avakov as a private person organized procurement of backpacks for the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Ukraine. Along with this, he took advantage of personal relations with the Deputy Ministry of Internal Affairs Serhiy Chebotarev

According to the National Anti-Corruption Bureau of Ukraine, at the moment of procurement warehouses of the Ministry of Internal Affairs had 2 000 unused backpacks. Avakov-junior have seemingly made an agreement on production of backpacks with an entrepreneur Volodymir Lytvyn, who in his turn, engaged Dniprovend LLC, which seemed to be fraudulent, to participation in the negotiations procedure in the course of procurement by the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Ukraine. 

Thanks to connections of the suspect Avakov Dniprovend LLC received a contract for procurement of 5 000 backpacks at a price 2 899 UAH per piece. The contract was annexed with a list of requirements to backpacks regarding their size, fiber, pockets, valves, orthopedic properties etc. According to the version of the National Anti-Corruption Bureau of Ukraine, Dniprovend LLC, which won the contract, in fact, existed only for exchange of documents. In reality, backpacks were sawn by a rule of thumb by several private entrepreneurs, as well as enterprises of the penitentiary system. From March to May 2015, private entrepreneur Lytvyn had in fact supplied the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Ukraine with 5 000 backpacks, that according to the documents had allegedly been supplied by the Dniprovend. Ministry of Internal Affairs accepted the backpacks and paid Dniprovend nearly 14.5 million UAH which later through a number of fake enterprises were converted to cash.

On 3 August 2016, detectives of the National Anti-Corruption Bureau of Ukraine received a conclusion of Kyiv Scientific and Research Institute of Forensic Expertise. According to the conclusion, backpacks procured by the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Ukraine, by most of the characteristics of constructional details and elements, did not meet the technical requirements to the procurement.

According to the conclusion of the the judicial commodity expertise, backpacks procured by the Ministry of Internal Affairs were sawn by the rule of thumb and had defects. Market price of the backpacks that were in fact supplied as of February 2015 amounted to 555 UAH without VAT.

As a result, Ministry of Internal Affairs received poor quality products that did not meet the requirements set by the Ministry itself, having spent 14.5 million UAH of budget money.
