The resolution with which the documents of the MOH came to the investigators expired, its expired 19.01.2017,» said Suprun and published a link to the court’s decision.
«The national police are investigating how the United Nations development Programme purchased for the Ministry of health the medicines for 7 state programs. According to those who initiated the investigation — at inflated prices. In a strange way such assumptions differ in their estimates of the public organizations and the Ministry,» wrote Suprun.
«The struggle with our team and solutions is gaining momentum, and at any moment the work of international organisations and the whole purchase cycle can be paralyzed,» — says Suprun.
