One of the investigative cases concerns the possible theft of 133 million $ allocated by the United States for people with AIDS.

In the United States, the issue of the possible theft of funds, which Washington had allocated several years for the technical support of Ukraine, is gaining momentum.

As reported in “STRANA”, it is about 5 billion$, which are “adopted” by the former US ambassador Marie Jovanovic.

Rudolf Giuliani, Trump’s adviser and lawyer, issued a number of other revelations on this subject.

Last year in December Rudolf Giuliani said that president is seeking an investigation of the misuse of these billions.

In Twitter he wrote: “Trump will request an investigation regarding violations of US laws and abuse of hard-earned taxpayer dollars. It is his legal obligation under Article 2, Ch. 3 of the US Constitution, which Obama ignored”.

In early March, Giuliani said that he had already found evidence of a grand theft – the documents were provided by people’s deputy Andrii Derkach, who interviewed Giuliani before for his “Common Sense” podcast

“The Accounts Chamber in Ukraine discovered an alleged abuse of 5.3 billion $ during the Obama’s administration, while Joe Biden was an “inside man.” The Obama’s Embassy had urged the Ukrainian police not to investigate!”, claims Giuliani.

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

One of them concerns the possible theft of 133 million $ allocated by the United States for people with AIDS.

The money were conducted through the All-Ukrainian network of people living with HIV / AIDS, and according to Derkach, the founders of the Anti-Corruption Center, Dmytro Sherembey and his colleague Vitaliy Shabunin, did it. In February, the National Police already opened a case against the Center, which is funded by billionaire George Soros.

“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 and Sherembey was the founder, both were involved in the scheme” Derkach said during interview with Giuliani.

As Derkach noted, 134 million $ were allocated to fictitious companies; some even brought up criminal cases of embezzlement. Part of the amount was laundered and stolen.

“As soon as someone tried to investigate this story, Dmytro Sherembey and Vitaliy Shabunin started yelling about the pressure on democracy. Also, the US embassy in Kyiv was included before, but today, thank God, everything is quiet and no one is interfering,” said deputy.

According to him, as soon as the investigation on the overpricing of medicines by companies that allocated funds to the All-Ukrainian Network of People Living with HIV / AIDS began, Sherembey and Shabunin immediately began to block the investigation.

Derkach said to Giuliani that during the presidency of Petro Poroshenko, such investigations in Ukraine were impossible, as they were related to international technical assistance, and “they were controlled by someone from the US embassy.” The embassy stopped any investigations.

The deputy brought up the examples of suspicious spending of funds by American taxpayers.

So, for example, 36 millions $ were spent on a program to increase the confidence of citizens of Ukraine, 41 millions $ were allocated for the program ‘Competitive economy of Ukraine’ etc. Mostly such contracts were given to dubious American firms.

Derkach explained that stealing money in Ukraine is very convenient, since the theft system is perfectly tuned.

He said: “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”

It is noticed that in the Shabunin’s office , Derkach’s statements were called “intentionally false” and were promised to contact law enforcement agencies. Sherembey on his Facebook page said that there were already 12 cases, and all of them are closed.

Despite it, in December last year, Giuliani came to Kyiv, where he made a movie about Ukrainian-American corruption.For Trump, these revelations could be a bargaining chip in the fight against his competitor-democrat Joe Biden, who supervised Ukraine during the time of presidency of Poroshenko.

The “Ukrainian dossier of Giuliani” can hit the entire pyramid of democrats who support Biden.

According to Giuliani’s version, the corruption pyramid looks like this: Soros-Biden, three US ambassadors in Ukraine (Payette, Jovanovic, Taylor), George Kent (former US deputy ambassador in Ukraine, and now a senior State Department official), Poroshenko and Yatsenyuk, Sytnik (head of NABU), as well as Kasko, the former Deputy Prosecutor General of Ukraine.

Sources and whistleblowers surrounded by Giuliani believe that evidence of corruption by the past Ukrainian government and excessive spending on Non Governmental Organization can cause a criminal case against Poroshenko and can lead to the end for many grant recipients. At the same time in the US, Democrats are accused of using the state apparatus for their own mercenary purposes.

William Barr, US Attorney General, said in February that the US Department of Justice will “keep the doors open” for Giuliani and his information about possible violations by the Biden family.

According to Western media, there is a high probability of initiating cases on Ukrainegate.

And, according to Western media, there is a high probability of initiating cases on Ukrainegate.

Let’s recall, US Attorney General William Barr announced that the Department of Justice had received information about Joe Biden and his son Hunter, which Giuliani, the personal lawyer of US President, collected in Ukraine. At the same time, the prosecutor general specified that the federal departments would be “very careful” with the data of Ukrainian origin.
