According to investigators, the National Guard of Ukraine and developer Ukrstroy reached an agreement that a residential complex should be built on the territory of the former military unit. The National Guard was supposed to get there 50 apartments and 30 parking spaces. However, in 2016-2017, the parties concluded additional agreements, according to which the National Guard refused apartments and parking spaces in Pechersk in exchange for 65 apartments in a house on the outskirts of Kiev. As the review established, the cost of apartments on the outskirts is 81,635,448 UAH lower than that in which the apartments in Pechersk were rated.
On October 4, 2019, the WAKS panel of judges elected Mikitas a restraint in the form of an arrest with the right to deposit 5.5 million UAH. A promise was made to him and he was released.
However, this SAP court decision appealed to the WAKS Appeals Chamber. Finally, the court allowed the prosecutor’s complaint regarding the increase in bail and Mikitas chose a preventive measure in the form of an arrest with the right to post bail in the amount of UAH 80 million. After that, Mikitasha was arrested in the courtroom.
On October 25, 80 million UAH were pledged for Mikitas. Under the terms of the preventive measure, Mikitas was required to wear an electronic bracelet, hand over his passport and report to the investigator on request and not communicate with witnesses to his case.
