Danyluk said that the case of «PrivatBank» – is «a litmus test of the effectiveness of law enforcement agencies.»
«Today, the state has spent almost 140 billion UAH for additional capitalization of «PrivatBank» due to the fact that previously he had withdrawn the money or granted under-secured loans, which no one returns. It is the money of every citizen, every taxpayer, and they must be returned to the state budget. Here unofficial arrangements and inaction of law enforcement bodies», – wrote the Minister.

However, none of these cases to date has not been submitted to the court as pre-trial investigation in these industries are moving very slowly, and some cases of the investigative actions generally are not conducted», – said danyluk.
