- Ukrainian MP Andriy Derkach revealed on Wednesday
that former Vice President Joe Biden received
$900,000 from Burisma Group for lobbying activities,
citing materials related to an investigation.
Former U.S. Vice President Joe Biden received
$900,000 for lobbying activities from
Burisma Group, Ukraine's Verkhovna
Rada member Andriy Derkach said citing
Derkach publicized documents which, as he
said, "describe the mechanism of getting
money by Biden Sr." at a press
conference at Interfax-Ukraine's press center in
Kyiv on Wednesday. -Interfax
"This was the transfer of Burisma Group's
funds for lobbying activities, as
investigators believe, personally to Joe
Biden through a lobbying company.
Funds in the amount of $900,000 were transferred to
the U.S.-based company Rosemont Seneca Partners,
which according to open sources, in particular, the
New York Times, is affiliated with Biden. The
payment reference was payment for consultative
services," said Derkach.
Derkach also puiblicized sums
of money transferred to Burisma Group
representatives - including Joe Biden's
"According to the documents, Burisma paid no less
than $16.5 million to [former Polish President, who
became an independent director at Burisma Holdings
in 2014] Aleksander Kwasniewski, [chairman of the
Burisma board of independent directors] Alan Apter,
[Burisma independent director] Devon Archer and
Hunter Biden [who joined the Burisma board of
directors in 2014]," Derkach added.
"Using political and economic levelers of
influencing Ukrainian authorities and manipulating
the issue of providing financial aid to Ukraine,
Joe Biden actively assisted closing criminal
cases into the activity of former Ukrainian Ecology
Minister Mykola Zlochevsky, who is the founder and
owner of Burisma Group."
"Biden's fifth visit to Kyiv on December 7-8,
2015 was devoted to making a decision on the
resignation of [then Ukrainian Prosecutor General]
Viktor Shokin over the case of Zlochevsky and
Burisma. Loan guarantees worth $1 billion that the
United States was to give to Ukraine was the point
of pressure. Biden himself admitted exerting
pressure in his speech at the Council of Foreign
Relations in January 2018, calling Shokin 'son of a
bitch who was fired'," Derkach added.
The timeline of events proves that
the U.S. linked the Zlochevsky case to loan
guarantees, he said.
After the decree dismissing Shokin was
published on April 3, 2016, the governments of
the United States and Ukraine signed a loan
guarantee agreement worth $1 billion, several
months later, on June 3, he said.
"In this case, there are facts should be
subject to investigation. There is an agency
that has powers to investigate them; the U.S.
Department of Justice. If the Ukrainian
Prosecutor General signs documents and send them
to U.S. Department of Justice without any
requests, he will accomplish his mission," he
said, adding that the Ukrainian Prosecutor
General has such powers.
"Considering international corruption in
public is a way-out for President Zelensky. I am
certain that he is not involved in international
corruption," Derkach said.
It was reported earlier that Derkach
publicized correspondence between the National
Anti-Corruption Bureau of Ukraine (NABU) and
officers of the U.S. Embassy in Kyiv. According
to publicized correspondence, starting from July
14, 2017, the lists of criminal proceedings
undertaken by NABU officers were sent from the
electronic mailbox of Polina Chyzh, an assistant
to NABU first deputy head Gizo Uglava, to the
electronic mailbox of Hanna Yemelianova, a legal
specialist of the anti-corruption program of the
U.S. Justice Department at U.S. Embassy in
Derkach says he will publish the leaked documents
on his Facebook account, and will initiate
the creation of an ad hoc parliamentary
investigative commission, "and has
already requested launching a criminal case against
Ukrainian officials into interference into U.S.
elections," according to the report.
