Embattled tax official files resignation after raids

The acting head of the Kyiv Tax Inspectorate, Oksana Datiy, has tendered a letter of resignation, sources in the tax service have told

"She wrote a letter of resignation immediately after the searches. It is possible that there will be a suspicion of illicit enrichment. I have no doubt that there is. However, in fact, she was engaged in small-scale affairs, there is nothing systemic there," the source said, providing a photo of the statement.

Earlier, MP Yaroslav Zheleznyak of the Voice faction announced a meeting of the "parliamentary investigatory commission on economic security" on 9 February on the case of recent searches in the Kyiv tax office and possible VAT abuse.

On 1 February, officers of the State Bureau of Investigation conducted searches at the Kyiv Tax Inspectorate, including at Datiy's office.
