The Ukrposhta state postal agency has bought 700 bicycles for its needs. Ukrposhta’s General Director Ihor Smelianskyi announced this at a news briefing in the Ministry of Infrastructure on Monday, the CFTS correspondent reports.
"I am sure that the bicycles will be delivered on time, within two or three months," he said.
It purchased the bicycles through the Prozorro online auction system.
Smelianskyi sees the bicycles as a means of saving money.
Ukrposhta currently has more than 3,600 vehicles. According to Smelianskyi, 30% of them were not used during the first quarter. According to him, the necessary supplies were purchased nevertheless, which led to abuses. The head of Ukrposhta plans to eliminate this corruption loophole
