The apartment of the son of the interior Minister Arsen Avakov Alexander from the staff of the NABOO, who arrived there to conduct a search, guarded by aunts and fighters of a specialcompany «Kharkov-1», said in comments to the edition «GORDON» the Kharkov activist Dmitry Oleynik.
«I’m on the scene. The staff of the NABOO arrived to conduct a search in the apartment of the son of Avakov. Then the defense came «patriots» – aunts in the form of chevrons with Ukrainian. Also here arrived a special company «Kharkov-1″, which restricts the passage of people to this building. Currently, about 60 aunts was blocked by employees of the NABU, who arrived to conduct a search of the home son Avakov. Local MPs also can not go in to see what was going on. I myself Avakov Jr. is not seen, because the building activists are not allowed. But we were told that he was in the house. Apparently, the staff of the NAB will strongly oppose that they could not take out of the house documentation. Accordingly, they will not be able to arrange everything as it should be,» – said Oleynik.
According to him, the search of Alexander Avakov has nothing to do with pressure on the Minister of internal Affairs.
«As soon as the search began, came the aunts, then came the message about mining of the building, and police immediately blocked the traffic. About mining we were told the law enforcers. But evacuation is not possible – the staff of the NABOO, titushki and police are inside the building. About any pressure on the Minister here we are not talking – he is the second person in the country after the President. This is purely an anti-corruption investigation,» – said Oleynik.
In February 2016 the program «Schemes» («Radio Freedom» and the channel «NTU») published a secret recording, allegedly made in December 2014 in the office of the former Deputy Minister of internal Affairs of Ukraine Sergey Chebotar. For her master Cabinet agrees on the alleged questionable procurement procedure of the party of the backpacks for the regional departments of the Ministry of internal Affairs with a person whom the authors of the investigation identified as the son of Avakov.
The Minister denied the information about the involvement of his family members to the delivery of the backpacks for the interior Ministry.
