The authorities have completed an internal probe against military enlistment officer Yevhen Borysov, who reportedly has luxury property, and found no violations, Natalia Humeniuk, the spokesperson for Ukraine's Operational Command South, told Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty on June 23.

Humeniuk added that he keeps fulfilling his duties on the job.

Online newspaper Ukrainska Pravda published an investigation into Borysov, head of the Odesa military enlistment office, on June 22, saying that the official's family had acquired property worth $4.5 million in Spain at the time of Russia's full-scale invasion of Ukraine.

Meanwhile, David Arakhamia, head of President Volodymyr Zelensky's faction in parliament, said on June 23 that he had requested an inspection of all military enlistment offices in Ukraine after the Ukrainska Pravda investigation.

According to the journalists, the offshore property includes a $3.3 million villa, a number of expensive cars worth $500,000 in total, and office space in the city of Marbella.

Ukrainska Pravda wrote that the assets are registered under Borysov's family members, including his wife, mother, and mother-in-law. The journalists confirmed this information with the local registry.

Borysov initially told the journalists that his family has no property in Spain. After being presented with the data in the registry, he claimed that his wife conducts business in the country and "he stays out of it."

In April, member of parliament Ihor Mosiichuk accused Borysov of corruption and of acquiring Spanish property with a value that does not correspond to his family's declared income.

The military official was subsequently suspended and the State Investigation Bureau launched an investigation into whether he abused his position.
