Mining sites were created by residents of Vinnytsia and Kiev in abandoned company warehouses. They were able to hide the occupation of the place from the company by using an electricity meter that did not show the actual energy consumption.

They managed to divert electricity equivalent to 259,000 dollars per month . Excessive consumption could lead to power surges and blackouts in surrounding areas, officials added.

During the search, police found nearly 3,800 PlayStation 4 (PS4). Officers confiscated electricity consumption documents as well as laptops, phones and USB drives, the statement said.
