Odessa Port Plant appeared at the center of a scandal
Members of the Board of the Odessa Port Plant (Ukraine): Vitaliy Derkachenko, Maxim Zubarev and Alexander Zemtsov, decided to pay themselves a salary and award a bonus of 7 million hryvnias (over $230 thousand). However, the supervisory board of the enterprise discharged them of their duties and terminated their contracts.
