AP IMPACT: TAX CHEATS TOOK BILLIONS FROM UKRAINE [Excerpts] 

 

 

 

As Ukraine’s [new] tax chief tells it, the billion-dollar theft was planned at a see-through plastic table in a vault of sound-proof steel. 

 

The table and six matching transparent chairs sit in a secret chamber on an upper story of the Tax Ministry in Kiev. 

 

It was the epicenter, he and other tax officials say, of a massive fraud suspected of squeezing 130 billion hryvnias ($11 billion) from Kiev’s coffers over the past three years —-an amount equal to more than half a year’s tax revenue for the entire country. 

 

Deputy Tax Minister Ihor Bilous, the country’s new tax boss, says his predecessor was in on the scam, helping to organize a wide network of phantom firms in return for a cut of the cash. 

 

The criminals, he says, operated with impunity.
