A decorated tent put up for a promotion in Kyiv centre comes as the most expensive item of a charity  event that was part of Flag Day celebrations.

The government contact for  the event at National Opera and Ballet Theatre estimated at 3,5 million hryvnas was awarded to the company owned by Bohdan Tril bypassing tender procedures.

According to government contracts database ProZorro,  the event organizers  commissioned a decorated  tent that alone cost Ukrainian taxpayers  over 2 million hryvnas, while remaining 1.5 million hryvnas went on music, props  and costumes.

Earlier reports showed that another 7 million hryvnas government contract for  ‘Crimean Platform’ organization went to a businessman known for his questionable reputation.
