The Ukrainian Anti-Corruption Bureau is ready to show suspicion to the entourage of the President

MONREAL, QUEBEC, CANADA, May 15, 2017 / -- The Ukrainian Anti-Corruption Bureau is ready to show suspicion to the entourage of the President

In early 2016, the former head of the Ukrainian Security Service, Valentin Nalyvaychenko, said that the Federal Bureau of Investigation is intently studying financial structure of the political elite of Ukraine, in particular, the closest associate of President Petro Poroshenko and his key business partner, Igor Kononenko. A year ago this statement was not given much importance. However, as it has become known, Nalivaichenko did not shake the air at all. According to some source from the Ukrainian National Anti-Corruption Bureau, Kononenko's suspicion of money laundering is clear, and depending on the political situation in the country, but not later than in May this year, it will be officially handed over to him. Detectives NABU (The Ukrainian Anti-Corruption Bureau) are convinced that Kononenko, being the so-called watcher of the energy sphere of Ukraine, withdrew hundreds of millions of dollars from the State Budget of Ukraine. Detectives have established a hierarchy of supervision over the country's energy, in which the main figure for money-laundering following Kononenko turned out to be the member of the “Region Party”, a native of the Donetsk region, Vitaly Kropachev. According to the detectives, it was Kropachev's activities and way of life that provided the evidence base against Kononenko. One of the volumes of the NABU file is about Kropachev's sudden enrichment, which is directly related to his activities in the energy sector. In particular, we are talking about buying an armored Mercedes-Benz and an escort vehicle of the same brand, worth more than a million dollars. "Paying attention to the way of life of Kropachev, we studied his financial activities. It turned out that through factories, obtained from the fugitive President Yanukovych’s son, under his control, state funds are washed away in favor of Kononenko every hour, "a source from the National Olympic Committee said. At the same time, Kropachev's psychotype is quite alarming. Ukrainian media mention him as an ideologist and financier of the infamous "Tornado" battalion, accused by the prosecutor's office of looting, rape and killing of residents of the front-line zone of Ukraine.
