People’s deputies Andriy Derkach (non-factional) and Olexandr Dubinsky (“Servant of the people” faction) demand that the President of Ukraine Vladimir Zelensky check the bidding for the implementation of the Kherson oil transshipment as part of a pre-trial investigation.
A copy of the relevant appeal to Zelensky was published by Derkach on his Facebook page on Wednesday. According to the message accompanying the photocopy, Derkach and Dubinsky demand to check and give a legal assessment of the bidding procedure for the sale of the property complex of the Kherson oil transshipment within the framework of the pre-trial investigation.
“At the same time, to pay due attention to the buyer of the property and the origin of the money needed to complete the procedure. It should be determined whether the money belongs to people close to Yanukovych’s organized crime group”.
He recalled that last week the official Internet portal Setam reported that the Kherson oil transshipment owned by the former Minister of Ecology and Natural Resources Mykola Zlochevsky was sold to an unidentified buyer for UAH 200 million.
“The use of this facility was investigated in a number of criminal proceedings related to the illegal activities of the so-called“ organized criminal group of Yanukovych. ”In addition, the Kherson oil transshipment appears in criminal proceedings as a collateral object with a significantly overestimated appraised value (almost 5 times – 1,147,000,000 UAH instead of 194,000,000 UAH), thanks to which the organized crime group of Yanukovych managed to steal 800,000,000 UAH.
He emphasized that the “Setam” policy in conducting tenders for the sale of collateral objects is anonymity.
The People’s Deputy wrote:
“This allows representatives of the organized crime group of Yanukovych to officially and legally return their assets to property through controlled entities and a number of offshore companies. And this is done with the same money illegally withdrawn from the country”.
Meanwhile, Derkach said, the Prosecutor General’s Office has taken a contemplative stance, and its head is taking time and thus contributes to the legalization of proceeds of crime.
As noted in the appeal, during the pre-trial investigation of the criminal proceedings regarding the illegal actions of Mykola Zlochevsky, a number of companies were established by means of which they not only withdrew and laundered funds, but also financed the illegal covering by US Vice President D. Biden of criminal activities of “Burisma” , and the organized crime group of Yanukovych. We are talking about Kisaliano Holdings LTD, Rossseu Business Group LTD, Vestorgia Holdings LTD, Novapark Technics INC, Cipriato, Kuser, Ostro LTD, All-Ukrainian Industrial Union LTD and others.
As reported, on November 20 at a press conference at the Interfax-Ukraine agency, Ukrainian deputies Derkach and Dubinsky demanded that the presidents of Ukraine and the USA Zelensky and Trump investigate the facts of legalization of $ 7.4 billion by the “family” of Ukrainian ex-president Viktor Yanukovych through the Franklin Templeton Investments, an American investment fund, close to the US Democratic Party.
