High ranking Ukrainian officials who were lustrated for their connections to the corrupt government of president Viktor Yanukovych have managed to stay in flats, they got because of their job.
This is just one result of a new investigation of free housing for public servants I the city of Lutsk done by the Rivne Agency for Investigative Journalism. They also found that the old ‘tradition’of privatizing flats owned by the authorities continued despite the changes after Maidan.
Border guards, internal affairs employees, security service employees, prosecutors, judges and rescue workers are among the professionals who receive free housing in Lutsk. They use fraudulent schemes to receive service apartments and then privatize them to obtain free housing.
