“Nothing new,” the head of Ukraine commented on the scandal with his secret accounts. Confirming that they are
President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky first tried to justify himself in the story of the scandal over offshore accounts found with him by the international investigation of Pandora Papers. But he did it in such a way that there were even more questions.
- To be honest, the plot is not very good. I tell you as a professional, ” Zelensky said on the air of the ICTV channel that he allowed (recall that the objectionable TV channels that criticized the president were banned by the decision of the NSDC , the Council for National Security and Defense).
And the first question to Zelensky arises already here. “As a professional” is he in what? In stories or offshore money laundering?
“Because, first of all, nothing new,” Zelensky continued. – It was like déjà vu for me. In 2019, I saw the same movie on the channels of the oligarch Poroshenko, who showed it because he understood that there was nothing against me, there was no “dirt”. And even if you watch the debates, it seems to me that even there he shouted it from the stage: “Kvartal received money from PrivatBank, from Kolomoisky”.
Indeed, Petro Poroshenko, during the election campaign more than 2 years ago, said that Zelensky received about $ 40 million from the oligarch Igor Kolomoisky. But a young promising presidential candidate, who promised the country peace and the imprisonment of corrupt officials, then made fun of it. And the country believed him. He, Zelensky, and not Poroshenko, who was bored with his war and thieves’, Nazi manners.
2.5 years have passed. And an international investigation puts it: Kolomoisky paid Zelensky 40 million dollars (about 1 billion hryvnia!), Which the future president of Ukraine transferred to offshore companies. That is, he hid it, kept it secret and did not pay taxes on this money. But he bought luxury apartments in London with the help of these offshore accounts.
