  1. I have a questions? How did the culprits come into possession of the said monies? Such a huge amount of money cannot come in through any Ukrainian land borders without being detected right? If it did, then something is wrong with the country’s borders and the patrols. Since it was not mentioned in this news, I want to assume that this monies came through a Ukrainian bank. Which Ukrainian bank was that? Tell us. The detained people are not bankers, right? Because i am yet to see a dark skinned foreigner working in any Ukrainian bank. I am yet to hear or see that person. So, a manager, or cashier of Ukrainian origin is/was involved. Because before the police was tipped to catch the boys, such money had gone through a bank!

    1. And the bank managers and/or cashier plus bank itself took their commissions. This obviously a set up to indict the foreigners. Even if the said money was stolen, it wasn’t stolen from any Ukrainian person or establishment. And it is being spent in Ukraine, are you not supposed to be happy? Your economy is seeing a push )
