"On Monday, during the investigation Trukhanov was served with charge papers under Article 366-1 of the Criminal Code of Ukraine on the fact of declaring false information," the Specialized Anti-Corruption Prosecutor's Office (SAP) reported.
The National Anti-Corruption Bureau has started to close criminal proceedings under the illegal enrichment article of the Criminal Code, which was previously abolished by the Constitutional Court. The Odesa Mayor Hennadii Trukhanov case is one of such proceedings.

Dec.12, 2017, 59 MPs appealed to the Constitutional Court with a complaint about the article in question. Their interests in the court are represented by People’s Front MP Pavlo Pinzenyk.
