Andriy Derkach, Verkhovna Rada deputy and the initiator of a criminal case on interference in the U.S. elections, has released documents confirming Washington’s pressure on the Ukrainian investigation, Lenta.ru reported.
The first deputy director of the National Anti-Corruption Bureau of Ukraine (NABU) Gizo Uglava handed over secret documents to the American side, the document writes. The deputy also released letters, including instructions for NABU employees. The US embassy requested information on the case of the former Ukrainian Ecology Minister and the owner of Burisma Holdings, Mykola Zlochevsky.
Derkach also revealed the amounts that were transferred to Burisma Holdings employees, including Hunter Biden, the son of Joe Biden. According to published information, Biden received about $16.5 million from a Ukrainian oil and gas company.
The Deputy also noted that such a huge corruption could not be carried out without the participation of then-acting President Petro Poroshenko.
“I want to stress that I’m almost sure, and not only I, but many journalists, that Petro Poroshenko personally bears the responsibility for the situation in which Ukraine appeared itself – for dragging Ukraine into interference in the US presidential election, for a huge number of corruption scandals and international corruption that could not have carried out without his control or participation,” the Deputy said.
Documents, classifying the illegal collection of personal data of the former Prosecutor General of Ukraine Viktor Shokin by NABU employees, have been also published. According to the Deputy, all the documents have already been handed over to the Ukrainian State Bureau of Investigation and the Prosecutor General’s office. He also added that he had already initiated the creation of an intelligence committee to probe interference in the US election.
The publicity around the Bidens began when the media said that Biden Jr. received huge sums of money from the Ukrainian company Burisma. At this time, his father served as a Vice President of the Barack Obama administration. Moreover, the conversation between Trump lawyer Rudi Giuliani and Viktor Shokin was revealed, during which the former Prosecutor General of Ukraine suggested that his dismissal was related to an investigation into the Burisma activities in Ukraine.
The Biden Case was the reason for President Trump’s impeachment. The Democratic Party believes that Donald Trump put pressure on Ukraine’s President to kick out his political rival.
