Dossier:

According to the official biography, published on the website of Zaporizhzhya Regional State Administration, since 1987 Kostyantyn Bryl has almost constantly been either in military or in civil service.

As of May 2018, Bryl Kostyantyn Ivanovych is the Head of Zaporizhzhya Regional State Administration.

In 2016, Kostyantyn Bryl was refusing to publish his electronic declaration for 2015 explaining it by the fact that he was an acting officer of the Security Service of Ukraine (he stated that while being the Head of Zaporizhzhya Regional State Administration). Security Service of Ukraine informed that Bryl was really working at the Security Service of Ukraine and was allegedly assigned to Zaporizhzhya Regional State Administration to work at civil positions with the aim to perform tasks of counter-intelligence, to combat corruption and organized crime. It was only in May 2017 that Kostyantyn Bryl informed that he filed for resignation from the Security Service of Ukraine and published his electronic declaration.

Probably, the reason for Bryl to avoid declaring can be his significant wealth, legality of which can hardly be explained. More details on failure to provide electronic declaration by Bryl can be found in the journalist investigation.


Electronic declaration of Kostyantyn Bryl of 2017 states that he and his family members own:

  • 5 land plots in Kyiv;
  • apartment with an area of 151 sq. meters in Kyiv (belongs to his daughter Krystina);
  • apartment with an area of 77,8 sq. meters in Kyiv (belongs to his daughter Valeriya);
  • residence with an area of 318,8 sq. meters in Pereyaslav-Khmelnitskiy district of Kyiv region (belongs to his wife Maya);
  • residential houses with an area of 629 and 282,40 sq. meters in Kyiv (owned directly by Kostyantyn Bryl, 2/3 of a larger house were given as a gift to his daughter Krystina);
  • garden house with an area of 45,80 sq. meters in Kyiv (owned directly by Kostyantyn Bryl).

Based on the information from social networks of Krystyna and Valeriya Bryl journalists have also established that underage daughters of Kostyantyn Bryl actively travel and visit luxury resorts: five-star hotel Annapourna in Courchevel (France), hotel Ritz-Carlton on the Atlantic Ocean beach of Miami (USA), five-star hotel on Maldives Sun Aqua Vilu Reef, one of the most expensive hotels of Turkey – D-maris. Estimated cost of such vacation significantly exceeds income of Kostyantyn Bryl. More details from journalist investigations can be found here:


Kostyantyn Bryl is the co-founder and head of NGO Kyiv Regional Civil Union “With Trust in Ukraine", registered in Pereyaslav-Khmelnitskiy. Another co-founder of the NGO “Kyiv Regional Civil Union “With Trust in Ukraine” is Radevych Vitaliy Fedorovych.

The same Radevych Vitaliy Fedorovych is the head of Hunting paths LLC, share of 22,6% of its authorized capital belongs to Bryl’s wife, Bryl Maya Petrivna.

In February 2004, Kyiv Regional Council gave Hunting Paths LLC 49 thousand hectares of land for use in Vyshgorod Ditrict of Kyiv Region for the term of 25 years. Hunting Paths LLC concluded a contract with Kyiv State Forestry Union Kyivlis on conditions of running hunting farm on the provided lands. Later this contract was revised twice in 2007 and 2013.

In 2016, Prosecutor’s Office filed a lawsuit  to recognize the decision of Kyiv Regional Council illegal and cancel it as well as to recognize the contract on rent of lands invalid. The reason was that not all owners of lands have given consent to use their lands for hunting.

The court of first instance proved that letters of a number of village councils of Vyshgorod district certifying their consent to provide lands for use to Hunting Paths are absent. Additionally, some village councils violated the order to provide such consent. Thus, the court agreed that the decision of Kyiv Regional Council on providing lands to Hunting Paths was illegal. However, the court rejected the claim because of violation of period of limitation.

On 15 November 2017, Supreme Economic Court of Ukraine in cassation instance returned the case for a new trial.

It’s interesting that in Vyshgorod district of Kyiv region there is also Hunting Paths II LLC (EDRPOU 35783722). The head of Hunting Paths II LLC is Buzyak Oleg Anatoliyovych, he also has signature rights in Hunting Paths LLC.

National Anti-Corruption Bureau of Ukraine investigates criminal proceedings No. 52017000000000068 of 26 January 2017 initiated under Article 366-1 of the Criminal Code of Ukraine (Declaration of False Information).

The case is based on the fact that Kostyantyn Bryl failed to indicate in his electronic declaration for 2016 parts of information about his wealth. Kostyantyn Bryl did not indicate in his declaration that he has the right to property belonging to his father and father-in-law. It was also established, that Kostyantyn Bryl uses cars that are absent in his declaration: Mercedes-Benz G63 AMG of 2014; Mercedes-Benz SLK 200 of 2008; Mercedes-Benz S 500 of 2009; Mercedes-Benz Viano of 2012; Land Rover of 2013.
