UAE: Poroshenko involved in large-scale corruption – fugitive Ukrainian MP

United Arab Emirates, Dubai
December 5, 2016 at 23:14 GMT -00:00 · Published

Fugitive Ukrainian Member of Parliament Alexander Onishchenko claimed in an interview from Dubai on Monday that President Petro Oleksiyovych Poroshenko was personally involved in large-scale corruption and money laundering in Ukraine.

Onishchenko claimed that Poroshenko “controls all the state companies” by putting “one of their people in charge” and asserted that “you cannot win any tender and do any contract if you’re not deciding with these people.” He said that Poroshenko was “very interested in keeping the war” and that for him “war is like a business” which allowed him to laudner money through companies under his control.

Onishchenko fled Ukraine in late June. The parliament were preparing to strip his legal immunity and launch a prosecution against him for alleged corruption involving the sale of domestically-produced gas. Onishchenko has claimed these allegations were trumped up to prevent him from exposing his knowledge of the government’s corruption.
