The West should return the money withdrawn from Ukraine, in particular, this concerns the companies within the jurisdiction of the United States.

This was stated by the Member of Parliament of Ukraine, one of the leaders of the party “Nash Kraj” Andrii Derkach on the air of the TV channel “112 UKRAINE”.

According to Derkach, $ 13 billion was “taken away by corruption from the population and withdrawn from the country in the form of foreign government bonds.”

” The entourage of Yanukovych and Poroshenko withdrew this money from Ukraine. When it was withdrawn, they bought external government obligations, which they themselves issued. This means, they forced Ukraine to lend its own common fund at a percentage. Then they placed these obligations in the American fund. We have already returned 1.5 billion of Yanukovych’s money, and now we are trying to return another 13 billion that now are in the United States, “ said the Member of Parliament.

According to the Andrii Derkach, the country’s leadership is applying for another external loan, instead of asking the United States to return the 13 billion dollars withdrawn from Ukraine.

” Our government is begging – honored masters of sports in taking loans. The external public debt is 85 billion dollars or, in other words, 2000 dollars per capita. But looking through the situation – it is not us, who should beg and take the loans. They owe us – $ 13 billion withdrawn by the entourage of Yanukovych and Poroshenko for companies under US jurisdiction. Therefore, I have a clear message: Ukraine does not need your loans! Give us what you owe! Give us back the $ 13 billion which you are hiding. And take all the foreign tourists back for yourself “, – заявил Деркач.

He recalled the statement by the chief diplomat of Europe, Josep Borrell, made at a meeting with President Zelensky.

” Europe is not an ATM or a charitable organization, “Borrell said. And so – Ukraine is not an ATM. “, – summarized Derkach.
