"The money was proposed in exchange for submission to the council's vote of a draft resolution to appeal to the president of Ukraine, prime minister, and Rada speaker on granting Lviv region a special economic status and transferring powers to set utility tariffs to local governments.

Criminal proceedings were initiated under Part 3 Article 369 of the Criminal Code of Ukraine. Investigation is underway.
