According to V.Pshonka, employees of General Prosecution were sent in the regions to study the situation. Following the inspections, particularly in Vinnytsya, Donetsk, Dnipropetrovsk, Ivano-Frankivsk and Kyiv regions, specific facts of public procurement in violation of the relevant procedures worth more than 45 million hryvnias were found.
