Burisma has lost an appeal in a lawsuit filed against non-factional MP Andrii Derkach.
According to the information published in Derkach‘s Telegram channel, the Kyiv Court of Appeal confirmed the decision of the Pechersky District Court of Kyiv. The Court rejected the claim of Burisma against the MP and Interfax-Ukraine News Agency regarding the protection of honor and dignity and business reputation.
Representatives of Burisma demanded a refutation of the information that they paid $900 thousand for lobbying activities to the former Vice-President, and now the US President Joe Biden, and $16.5 million to his son Hunter Biden, along with Aleksander Kwasniewski, Alan Apter and Devon Archer.
“The Pechersk Court noted that Burisma does not dispute the fact of payments to Biden and his son. The Company does not agree that such amounts were paid through the Rosemont Seneca Bohai company” – MP Derkach commented on the decision.
According to Derkach, the ongoing tax audit of Hunter Biden’s operations in the United States will confirm that the money that the son of the President of the United States wrote about in his new book and which was used as payment for the services of the Bidens was withdrawn from Ukraine and laundered through the shell companies Digitex Organization LLP and Wirelogic Technology A.S.
“As I have already mentioned and shown in the previous documents at the disposal of the Prosecutor’s General Office of Ukraine contained in the files of criminal proceedings, as well as data from the financial monitoring of Ukraine, Latvia and Cyprus, there are all traces of the movement of funds and payments, and Burisma used the same “dirty” money to pay for services of KROLL Associates UK LTD in the amount of at least $300 thousand,” the MP said.
We remind that earlier, Derkach claimed that an assassination attempt is being planned against the former Prosecutor of the PGO Kostiantyn Kulyk and him, and the perpetrators have already arrived in Ukraine. According to the MP, the alleged perpetrators of the assassination attempt belong to the Company’s paramilitary unit, which has a contractual relationship with KROLL Associates UK LTD.
“At the moment, the mentioned group is collecting data about Kostiantyn Kulyk and me for the purpose of physical elimination. This is known to some former and current officers of the foreign intelligence service of the United Kingdom MI6” – Derkach said.
