Americans billions of tax money for Ukrainian Aid went to corrupt officials.
In previous reports, we have mentioned how some of the US politicians placed their hands in the cookie jar in Ukraine, but what we actually don’t know is, aside from US politicians, Ukraine politicians also have their hand in the jar as well.
The Gateway Pundit reported in 2019 about Igor Kolomoisky, a Ukrainian businessman that controls one of Ukraine’s largest commercial banks, Privat Bank.
Privat Bank was said to control the oil and gas company that gave Hunter Biden millions, Burisma that John Kerry was involved too and according to reports $1.8 billion of the bank’s money was lost Kolmiosky suspected that the said huge amount went offshore someplace.
TGP also mentioned from their previous reports how US politicians were involved in Ukraine but not for world peace. It wasn’t to help out the people of Ukraine either.
Aside from the US politicians, Former Ukrainian President Poroshenko promised to put his business aside when he became President:
“If I get elected, I will wipe the slate clean and sell the Roshen concern. As President of Ukraine I plan and commit to focus exclusively on welfare of the nation,” Poroshenko told the German newspaper Bild less than two months before the election.
Instead, actions by his financial advisers and Poroshenko himself, who is worth an estimated US$ 858 million, make it appear that the candy magnate was more concerned about his own welfare than his country’s – going so far as to arguably violate the law twice, misrepresent information and deprive his country of badly needed tax dollars during a time of war.
Poroshenko did this by setting up an offshore holding company to move his business to the British Virgin Islands (BVI), a notorious offshore jurisdiction often used to hide ownership and evade taxes.
However, the release of the Panama Papers showed:
Poroshenko’s action might be illegal on two counts: he started a new company while president and he did not report the company on his disclosure statements.
The Ukraine current President who ran against corruption in the country also has his stains too because of his connections to banker Kolomoisky and he was accused of having $41 million in offshore funds:
Zelensky capitalized on widespread public anger at corruption, but his 2019 campaign was dogged by doubts over his anti-graft bona fides, given that his campaign was boosted by media belonging to Kolomoisky — who is accused of stealing US$5.5 billion from his own bank and funneling it offshore in concert with his partner, Hennadiy Boholiubov.
In the heat of the campaign, a political ally of incumbent President Petro Poroshenko published a chart on Facebook purporting to show that Zelensky and his television production partners were beneficiaries of a web of offshore firms that allegedly received $41 million in funds from Kolomoisky’s Privatbank.
That ally, Volodymyr Ariev, didn’t provide evidence, and his accusations have never been proven. But the Pandora Papers show that at least some of the details in this alleged scheme correspond to reality. The leaked documents show information on 10 companies in the network that match structures detailed in Ariev’s chart.
