 Radical Party member Lozovyi detained in Czech Republic while paying for goods with fake money, - Liashko

Czech police arrested a member of Ukrainian Radical Party, Andrii Lozovyi, in Prague as the money he paid for a gift to his mother turned out to be counterfeit.

As reported by Censor.NET citing Ukrinform, the party leader Oleh Liashko wrote on social media that the lawmaker had been detained at the airport before departing to Kyiv.

"According to Andrii, with whom I have just spoken, he bought a gift to his mother at the airport, but the euros, which he wanted to pay, turned out to be fake. Lozovy's aide got them exchanged in a Kyiv-based currency exchange office. Our police are now searching for foreign currency fraudsters, because the 'exchange office' has disappeared. Well, I hope the Czech police will immediately release Lozovyi, who became a victim of foreign currency fraudsters," Liashko wrote.
