On 16 March, the investigating judge of the High Anti-Corruption Court (HACC) imposed a pre-trial restraint on the former minister of infrastructure of Ukraine in the form of bail in the amount of UAH 9,997,900, the press service of the Specialized Anticorruption Prosecutor's Office (SAPO) has said.
The suspect is charged with abuse of power and office, which caused the state more than $30 million in losses.
According to the SAPO, the court found the suspicion reasonable and partially granted the prosecutor's request.
Andriy Pyvovarsky has to deposit funds to the appropriate HACC account no later than five days after the court selected a measure of pre-trial restraint.
The ex-minister was also ordered to appear at the request of the detective, prosecutor and court, to notify the detective, prosecutor or court of changes in his place of residence and work, travel outside Kyiv and Kyiv Region, and to refrain from communicating with other suspects in the case, witnesses and other persons specified in the ruling.
The obligations are valid until 16 May.
The defence may appeal the court ruling to the HACC Appeals Chamber.
The NABU and the SAPO notified the former minister of infrastructure and his former first deputy of suspicion in February.
In 2014-2016, Andriy Pyvovarsky served as the minister of infrastructure of Ukraine, before that he worked for the Continuum group of companies and the investment company Dragon Capital.
