UKRAINE: Oct 2019, Ukraine Press Briefing Named Hunter Biden A WANTED Criminal. A Ukrainian Court Declines Request By PM Zelensky To Arrest Former President And Opposition Politician.

BudMeyers Published December 30, 2020: Ukraine press briefing naming Hunter Biden a WANTED criminal. Bill Barr (DOJ) and Chris Wray (FBI) knew of #Biden's corruption with #Ukraine but allowed the Democrats to impeach #PresidentTrump and didn't want the public to know before the election, just like the kiddie porn on Hunter Biden's laptop. HUGE cover-up!
Interfax News October 9, 2019: 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 investigation materials.

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.

"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," Derkach said.

He also publicized sums that were transferred to Burisma Group representatives, in particular Hunter Biden, a son of the former U.S. vice president.

"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 said.

"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," he said.

"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 said.

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 Ukraine.

Derkach also said that NABU-leak materials will be published on his Facebook account and materials that he got from investigating journalists have already been passed to Ukraine's State Bureau of Investigations and the Prosecutor's General Office.

He also said he 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. The court session is scheduled for October 21, he said.

Burisma Holdings is a Cyprus-registered gas producing company holding assets in Ukraine. It is one of Ukraine's top-three independent gas producers headquartered in Kyiv. Zlochevsky is the founder and the ultimate beneficiary owner of the company.
Axios published December 8, 2019: Joe Biden: "I don't know" what Hunter was doing for Burisma. Joe Biden is asked by Mike Allen about Hunter Biden's lucrative job for Burisma, a Ukrainian gas company: "I don't know what he was doing. I know he was on the board. I found out he was on the board after he was on the board. And that was it. ... I trust my son."

Here is a snipit of the video above: "They (the protesters) wrote Biden go home. There is no doubt that they are here for money. Communists and "locals" pay them money. Because of them we lost Crimea, Eastern Ukraine, and we will lose the entire country. They sell their souls to the devil."

Transcript from video above: Hi guys. Warmongers in the United States and abroad are telling us that our soldiers, our American blood, is being sent to Ukraine to be spilt in the protection of democracy from the Russian aggressor. Ukraine is no democracy. The president of Ukraine shut down the three TV stations in that country that dared oppose, openly criticize, his policies. He arrested and imprisoned his chief political rival. He arrested and imprisoned the leaders of the main opposition party. AND he did all of this with the support of the government of the United States.

A feud between President Volodymyr Zelensky and his predecessor, Petro O. Poroshenko, has carried on despite the risk the country is facing from Russia.

KYIV, Ukraine — A court in Ukraine ruled on Wednesday that a former president and opposition politician, Petro O. Poroshenko, could await trial while released on his own recognizance, in a positive sign for domestic political stability in the country.

Prosecutors in President Volodymyr Zelensky’s government had asked the court to arrest Mr. Poroshenko pending trial on charges of treason and supporting terrorism. Western diplomats view the case as influenced by domestic political considerations, but it has proceeded despite their pleas that Ukraine’s leaders set aside internal feuds, at least while Russia masses troops at the border.

Arresting Mr. Poroshenko on Wednesday would also have put a damper on Secretary of State Antony J. Blinken’s visit to Kyiv, the Ukrainian capital. Mr. Blinken was in Kyiv to show support from the Biden administration for Ukraine.

Mr. Poroshenko has a longstanding relationship with President Biden. The two coordinated closely during Russia’s military intervention into Ukraine in 2014, when Mr. Poroshenko was president of Ukraine and Mr. Biden oversaw Ukraine policy as vice president in the Obama administration.

Prosecutors had requested Mr. Poroshenko be placed either under pretrial arrest or post bail of 1 billion Ukrainian hryvnia, about $35 million. After two days of hearings, the court in Kyiv allowed Mr. Poroshenko to await trial without posting bail. The court prohibited him from traveling outside Ukraine and required that he obtain permission from the police to leave the vicinity of Kyiv.

Mr. Poroshenko led Ukraine from 2014 to 2019, when he was soundly defeated by his rival, Mr. Zelensky. Since then, Mr. Zelensky’s government has questioned Mr. Poroshenko as a witness in a raft of criminal cases. Mr. Poroshenko has a base of support in Ukraine’s nationalist politics, particularly in the country’s western regions, where support is highest for close ties with the European Union and NATO.

The feud between the men, Ukraine’s two most popular politicians, according to opinion polls, continued through the fall and winter, even as Russian forces massed near the border and posed an existential risk to their country.

Though it did not escalate with an arrest on Wednesday, the bout of infighting in Ukrainian politics is far from over. Mr. Poroshenko has said that he is under investigation in more than 120 separate criminal and civil cases.

The charges of treason and supporting terrorism, the issue in court on Wednesday, stem from his policy as president of allowing the purchase of coal from mines in areas in eastern Ukraine held by Russian-backed separatists for use in factories in government-controlled territory. Mr. Poroshenko has said that the arrangement was necessary to avoid economic collapse in Ukraine. If convicted, he faces 15 years in prison.
