GoLaw Successfully Defends Vita-Solar in Ukrainian Criminal Proceedings


GoLaw has successfully represented Vita Solar LLC, a Ukrainian subsidiary of TIU Canada, in criminal proceedings.

According to GoLaw, the criminal proceedings related to VAT reimbursements granted to Vita Solar in 2018 -2019 by officials of the Directorate-General of State Fiscal Service of Ukraine in the Mykolaiv Region. According to the firm, the prosecutor alleged that the reimbursements were made to “obtain an unlawful benefit for the Directorate-General of State Fiscal Service of Ukraine,” which was acting “on a prior conspiracy with the employees of the affiliated enterprises, Vita Solar and its counter-parties.”

As a result of the criminal charges, all funds of Vita Solar held in its bank accounts and in the State Treasury of Ukraine were seized, blocking the company's ability to do business.

Ultimately, according to Go Law, the criminal proceedings were "closed due to the absence of any offense," and Vita Solar's assets were released. 

The GoLaw team consisted of Senior Partner Sergiy Oberkovych, Partners Igor Glushko and Angelika Moiseeva, and Senior Associate Kristina Kolchynska.
