“Interpol received this information by phone. We haven’t got
documentary evidence yet. But we expect to get the documents from the
Hungarian law enforcement agencies later on Friday,” the source said.

The Ukrainska Pravda Internet publication reported earlier quoting
its sources that former MP Shepelev, who was put on the international
wanted list on suspicion of attempted murder and embezzlement of funds,
was detained in Budapest.

As reported, in April 2012, the chief of the main investigation
department of the Security Service of Ukraine (SBU), Ivan Derevianko,
said a criminal case was opened against an MP of the fifth and sixth
convocations (2006-2012), Shepelev in February 2011. The SBU suspects
Shepelev of being involved in the embezzlement of the funds of Rodovid
Bank worth over Hr 220 million, as well as being involved, along with
businessman Pavlo Borulko, in the embezzlement of public funds of the
refinancing of the National Bank of Ukraine worth Hr 315.3 million in
March-May 2009.
