In addition to Shevchenko, two more top managers of this bank – Denis Chernyshov and Olena Khmelenko – were declared wanted.
“NABU is looking for three officials from JSC Ukrgazbank involved in the embezzlement of over 200 million UAH.

Shevchenko and two other suspects were notified of the suspicion in early October with a special warrant, as the whereabouts of these individuals were unknown. All the suspects did not appear to the investigator, which is why they were declared wanted.
We remind you that Kiril Shevchenko resigned from the post of head of the National Bank on October 4. He motivated his decision with his health condition.
