Thank you to everyone who supported our work in May with the amount of 10,344 UAH. With your continued support over the past several months, we collected money and employed a new lawyer at the office, increased the volume of appeals, and thereby prevented the loss of stolen assets and prevented the work of corrupt officials.

Achieved the Termination of the Following Purchase:

  • Achieved the termination of an agreement to construct a rural club in Lviv Oblast worth 14 million UAH. The fact that the tender was between two firms, which are related to the Dubnevych brothers who are MPs from the Bloc of Poroshenko, made this agreement rather suspicious.
