The Specialized Anti-Corruption Prosecutor's Office (SAPO) announced on March 1 that Yevhenii Dykhne, the former head of Ukraine's state-owned Boryspil International Airport, has been sentenced to five years in prison for abuse of power.

According to the announcement, Ukraine's High Anti-Corruption Court found Dykhne guilty of Hr 15.7 million ($429,000) in damages.

Boryspil is Ukraine's biggest airport, located just southeast of Kyiv.

Between 2014-2019, Dykhne, as well as another official, leased out property for entrepreneurial activity at a price below market value. However, only Infrastructure Ministry and the State Property Fund have the right to lease land that is owned by the state.

In addition to his five-year sentence, Dykhne is forbidden from holding positions related to organizational-management or administrative-economic functions for a term of three years. He must also pay a fine of Hr 8,500 ($233).

Dykhne is also the former president of the privately-owned Ukraine International Airlines (UIA).
