In Ukraine's far-western Zakarpatria region, the Security Service (SBU) conducted a warranted search in the home of Vasyl Brenzovich, leader of the KMKS Party (Party of Hungarians of Ukraine) along with a number of other raids targeting other individuals.

As journalist Vitaly Hlahola reports on Telegram, law enforcers probe the suspected conclusion of fictitious contracts by the Egan Ede charity.

As the journalist notes, the criminal proceedings concern the alleged conclusion of fictitious contracts by Hungarian charitable foundations. According to law enforcement operatives, the scheme could be used to commit acts threatening national security of Ukraine.

"The criminal scheme is being investigated where one of the foundations allegedly ordered works under fictitious contracts, suspects appropriated the allocated funds, kept a shadow ledger, while funds allocated by Hungary were used to the detriment of Ukraine's national security," Hlahola said.
