The Ministry of Defense bought tents at 1.5 times market prices
The Ministry of Defence has signed an agreement with the "Siverteks" LLC for the purchase of tents for a total of UAH 21.99 million.
This was reported by the "Nashi Hroshi" with reference to the "Public Procurement Bulletin."
As noted, they ordered 500 sets of USB-56 type at 39,460 UAH per set, and 74 sets of UST-56 type at 30,588 UAH per set.
However, wholesale set of USB-56 tents can now be found at 25-34 thousand hryvnia, and UST-56 - at 15-26 thousand hryvnia.

Then, the tender price was also higher than that which could be found in open sources - 18-20 thousand hryvnia and 10-19 thousand hryvnia respectively.
The owner of Chernihiv "Siverteks" is Oleksandr Lavrenyuk, the company was founded on January 31 last year. The company began winning tenders in July, and during that time has received from the army a number of orders for a total of UAH 43.83 million.
All orders were received by the company under negotiating procedure, since it was the needs of the National Guard and border guards.
As you know, the internal audit of the Ministry of Defense revealed losses in the amount of UAH 382.85 million in January-April 2015; UAH 36.55 million has been recovered.
