​British journalists present new investigation into the “Burisma” case and Joe Biden's pressure on Ukrainian authorities

British journalists presented a documentary on corruption in the Ukrainian company Burisma, run by Mykola Zlochevsky – the Minister of Ecology under the fugitive President of Ukraine Viktor Yanukovych, and its possible connection to the family of the current US President Joe Biden.

The presentation took place on June 2nd at the Press Club Brussels Europe.

Burisma was established in 2002. Its assets were consolidated in 2007-2008.

In 2014, Burisma's supervisory board included the son of current US President Hunter Biden and former Polish President Aleksander Kwaśniewski.

According to the investigation into Burisma in Ukraine, which is constantly obstructed for strange reasons, Zlochevsky could have withdrawn tens of millions of dollars from Ukraine. To close the case, he tried to offer the anti-corruption authorities of Ukraine a record-breaking $5 million bribe.

Andriy Derkach, a people's deputy of Ukraine, presented documents showing that funds stolen in Ukraine were transferred to the accounts of Rosemont Seneca Partners, a company linked to Hunter Biden, through companies registered in Cyprus and Latvia.

Former Deputy Prosecutor General of Ukraine Kostiantyn Kulyk told the journalists that at least 11 cases are currently open in Ukraine against Mykola Zlochevsky and his withdrawal of funds. According to him, the involvement of the son of the current US President, Hunter Biden, and the former President of Poland in the supervisory board of Burisma was necessary so that Mykola Zlochevsky could avoid sanctions from the United States.

The film also emphasizes that Joe Biden, as vice president of the United States, used "telephone law" to put pressure on the Ukrainian authorities to dismiss officials involved in the Burisma case. In particular, Biden directly demanded the dismissal of the Prosecutor General of Ukraine Viktor Shokin.

Responding to questions after the presentation of the film, its author Tim White shared that he hopes that this documentary will give impetus to continue the investigation into the Burisma case and the involvement of European and American officials in corruption.

“Ukraine is interested in completing the Burisma case and returning the stolen funds. I hope that our investigation will attract the attention of other media because international corruption cannot be ignored,” said Tim White.

In the meantime, the former Prosecutor General of Ukraine Viktor Shokin, who was dismissed because of the pressure from Joe Biden, last week presented his new book. It covers the Burisma case and the role that Hunter Biden played in it.

Also, in early April, the son of US President Hunter Biden presented his memoirs. The book confirms that he spent the money received for his work in the Ukrainian company Burisma on illegal substances.
