It is more, than tranches. Damage from corruption in Ukraine


According to investigation of the German newspaper Süddeutsche Zeitung, only because of corruption at customs Ukraine annually loses nearly five billion dollars. Ukraine because of corruption at customs annually loses about five billion dollars a year. It corresponds to about ten percent of all budgetary receipts and twice exceeds means which Ukraine this year expects to receive from the IMF, the European Union and the World Bank. The German edition Süddeutsche Zeitung has made investigation and has found out popular ways of a circumvention of the law at the Ukrainian customs. Корреспондент.net tells details. Corruption schemes at customs the Edition writes that at their order there are documents with proofs (with the indication of concrete numbers of thousands and thousands of consignment notes, containers, dates and numbers of customs declarations) corruption practically in all 520 local managements of customs service across all Ukraine. Businessmen and activists have told the German journalists about frequent cases of falsification of documents and providing false data on the declared goods. In material the example as a container of one of the companies with 26 tons of import zippers is given has been registered by the Odessa customs as freight of laces and needles for sewing. The customs clearance of these goods costs cheaper - owners of freight have paid about 5170 dollars instead of 22,5 thousand. From May 26 to June 7 this firm has issued 17 such containers. Thus, the budget of the country has lost about 150 thousand dollars. And in a day at the Odessa customs there undergo customs registration about one thousand containers, journalists note. Süddeutsche Zeitung also gives other example when from the middle of May until the beginning of June one company from Dnieper has issued 103 containers in customs office No. 6 of the city of Odessa. It has been stated that spare parts for bicycles, garden scissors, footwear and umbrellas have imported into Ukraine. However "on the road" from the consignment note before calculation of duty these goods became brushes, brushes, mirrors and cardboard boxes. Instead of the put 17 712 dollars of duty the firm has paid only 4 875 dollars. We are involved in corruption transactions the SSU and GPU In these frauds has involved, in particular, the staff of the border service and police, Prosecutor General's Office and the SSU. "Most the customs and the SSU receive - as a rule, at the end of the month there is a payment for each container with false documents. False firms for which the customs duties artificially decrease and which are connected with the management of local offices of customs service - officers of frontier service, the SSU or GPU are created. They at all have own firms and the people at customs", - the interlocutor of the edition in Odessa has told. That in fight against smuggling customs officers not only impart experience, but also actively it is used, the office-work opened in March of this year by detectives of National anti-corruption bureau of Ukraine demonstrates. Then the staff of the Odessa customs and State Office of Public Prosecutor who tried to sell illegally confiscated illicit cigarettes on became defendants in the case
