The court repeatedly allowed the Prosecutor General of Ukraine to initiate an investigation in absentia against the former Minister of health Raisa Bogatyryova, transfer “Ukrainian news”, referring to the decision of the court on November 17.

According to the document, 20 October 2014, the Prosecutor General’s office reported Bogatyryova on suspicion of misappropriation of another’s property by abuse of his official position, on preliminary arrangement by group of persons in especially large sizes. 21 Oct 2014 she was declared wanted.
