“Investigators of the administration of the State Bureau of Investigation, located in the city of Kiev, detained two prosecutors of one of the local prosecutors for extortion and obtaining undue benefits from the entrepreneur,” the statement said.
According to preliminary information, the prosecutors of one of the Kiev local prosecutor’s offices demanded $ 5,000 from the entrepreneur.

In case of proof of guilt, the detainees face a sentence of imprisonment of 5 to 10 years with the deprivation of the right to occupy certain positions or engage in certain activities, with confiscation of property.
