The National Anti-Corruption Bureau of Ukraine (NABU) conducts search in the premises of companies involved in the case into the underpriced sale of the natural gas under joint operation agreements with Ukrhazvydobuvannia PJSC.

As reported by Censor.NET citing Ukrainska Pravda, MP Oleksandr Onyshchenko (Volia Narodu parliamentary group), who is a target of this investigation, claims that the search is taking place in his MP's chamber.

"The search is currently underway. I am here as well. I have showed them all the papers. This is the formal MP's chamber but they continue behaving lawlessly," he said.

"They do it just to intimidate. They are just walking on the first floor smashing windows," the lawmaker wrote.
