People’s Deputy of Ukraine Andrii Derkach during an interview with Rudolf Giuliani – the lawyer of the President of the United States told him about the documented facts of the theft of the American financial assistance to Ukraine.

In an interview with ZIK, Derkach said that Ukraine spent about $ 5.3 billion in foreign financial assistance, of which $ 3 billion were American, while there was no reporting on these costs, and there was a suspicion that the money was simply stolen.

“The system is designed in such a way that contracts are received by organizations which are very close to former employees of USAID, the US government, former or current officials, ” said Derkach.

Derkach gave to Giuliani a folder with 20 cases, which, in his opinion, require a thorough investigation.

He noted that most investigations are now conducted by journalists, but one is located in the National Police and concerns the inefficient and dishonest distribution of funds allocated to people with AIDS. We are talking about 133 million dollars that were spent, possibly through corruption.

” “There are signs of fictitious enterprises in this case, “said Derkach. The investigation concerns the All-Ukrainian network of people living with HIV / AIDS.

“Sherembey and Shabunin built a scheme that was discovered by investigative journalists. This scheme suggested the existence of some kind of anti-corruption organization that would control the distribution of funds to other organizations.

As a result, serious funds which had been allocated to people with AIDS were laundered through the organization. The organization was controlled four times by the convicted Dmytro Sherembey. Vitaliy Shabunin headed the anti-corruption organization (Anti-Corruption Center – ed.) and Sherembey was the founder, both were involved in the scheme, “Derkach said.

He added that the ACC was funded in particular by George Soros.

According to him, Sherembey is also a member of the Supervisory Board of NABU, which is led by Artem Sytnik.

Derkach noted that as a result, almost 134 million $ were transferred not for the purposes for which the money was allocated. Money was allocated to fictitious companies; some even brought criminal cases of embezzlement. Part of the amount was laundered and stolen.

“The problem is that Ukrainian citizens and American taxpayers are lying. And my task is to stop this process; to make transparent the procedure of distribution funds and most importantly, make it more effectively. We can’t effectively investigate them by ourselves, that’s why we brought you these 20 cases. Some of the companies are American. A joint international investigation is needed. We need international help, but it must be accepted in a right way, “Derkach said.

At the end of last year, Derkach announced that he had agreed with Giuliani on the creation of the inter-parliamentary group ‘Friends of Ukraine STOP Corruption’.

According to Derkach, Giuliani will help attract international experts, analysts, journalists and “all those who can benefit the strategic relations of Ukraine and the United States.”
