Detention of former MP who helped fugitives

Former MP Iryna Sysoyenko, who was suspected of ‘making money’ on draft evaders on 7 June, is already free - she was released on bail of over UAH 900,000 on the same day, Suspilne reports.

The court chose a ‘preventive measure’ against Sysoyenko in the organisation of a scheme to evade mobilisation - it is a form of detention with an alternative to bail. A spokeswoman for the Kyiv City Prosecutor's Office said that the money had already been paid.

In addition to the former MP, the court imposed pre-trial restraints on two other defendants, and the issue of other suspects is currently being resolved.

Details of Sysoyenko's case

  • The former MP is currently a member of the management team of the Kyiv Institute for Preventive Medicine.
  • According to the investigation, she organised the mass production and sale of fictitious documents on obtaining a disability group due to occupational diseases. The main clients were potential conscripts who planned to use the fake documents to deregister from the military and illegally travel abroad.
  • Every month, the illegal activities of the offenders, led by the former MP, brought a ‘profit’ of almost $100,000. The funds were distributed among all the accomplices, including two colleagues of the organiser: heads of departments of a medical institution, an occupational therapist and a coordinator of illegal activities of medical workers in Lviv Region. The scheme also involved several officials of medical and social expert commissions in the western region.
  • At first, the evaders were falsely registered for outpatient treatment, then ‘diagnosed’ with an occupational disease, and then assigned a disability group.
