41 million hryvnias of additional security were paid to Odessa businessman Vadim Alperin after the VAKS Appeals Chamber collected $ 35 million from him for state revenues for violation of the obligations established by the court.
This was announced in a comment from Ukrinform, the prosecutor of the specialized anti-corruption prosecution, Roman Simkiv.
“On April 17, 41 million hryvnia of additional security was paid for Alperin,” said Simkiv.
The prosecutor added that if this amount had been paid, the prosecutor would have requested the arrest of Alpin.

As indicated, on April 16, the WAKS Appeals Chamber partially allowed the appeal of the SAP and recovered part of the security deposit in the amount of UAH 35 million, or half of security deposit she paid – 70 million UAH.
The court concluded that Alpin had violated his duties as a suspect. In particular, he did not hand over his passport to an Israeli citizen.
In addition, the court increased the amount of the commitment that Alpin must make within five working days to UA 76 million. As a result, Alperin must provide an additional 41 million UAH in warranty.
On March 19, WAKS refused to respond to the request of the prosecutor of SAP to request the income of the State of 70 million UAH from the deposit for the businessman Vadim Alperin, accused of having organized customs bribery schemes.

On November 26, 2019, the NABU and the SAP arrested and announced suspicions to 10 people, including 7 officials from the State Tax and Customs Service, in the event of fraud in customs clearance of goods.
At the same time, President Vladimir Zelensky then said that during a special operation to identify corrupt officials, the Alperin smuggler had fled the police and asked for help in his detention.
The NABU arrested Alperin on November 27 when he appeared for questioning at the SAP. Then he was suspected. The investigation considers the businessman to be the head of a criminal organization which has committed crimes related to the clearance of goods imported into Ukraine at low prices.
On November 29, the Supreme Anti-Corruption Court elected Alperina, nicknamed the “smuggling king of Odessa”, a preventive measure in the form of detention with the possibility of paying 70 million UAH on bail. In early December, Alperin left the pre-trial detention center.
