KYIV. Nov 20 (Interfax-Ukraine) – Ukrainian members of parliament have demanded the presidents of Ukraine and the United States, Volodymyr Zelensky and Donald Trump, investigate suspicions of the legalization of $7.4 billion by the "family" of ex-President Viktor Yanukovych through the American investment fund Franklin Templeton Investments, which they said has ties to the U.S. Democratic Party.

At a press conference at the Interfax-Ukraine agency on Wednesday, MP Andriy Derkach announced that deputies have received new materials from investigative journalists about international corruption and the participation of Ukrainian officials in it.

"Last week, November 14, the Prosecutor General's Office (PGO), unnoticed by the media, announced a new suspicion to the notorious owner of Burisma, ex-Ecology Minister Zlochevsky. According to the suspicion, the Yanukovych family is suspected, in particular, with legalizing (laundering) of criminally obtained income through Franklin Templeton Investments, an investment fund carrying out purchases of external government loan bonds totaling $7.4 billion," Derkach said.

With reference to the investigation, he emphasized: it was money criminally obtained by the "family" of Yanukovych and invested in the purchase of Ukrainian debt in 2013-2014.

For his part, MP Oleksandr Dubinsky from the Servant of the People faction said that according to investigators, "the Yanukovych 'family' illegally obtained $7.4 billion and laundered the funds through an investment fund close to some representatives of the U.S. Democratic Party in the form of external government loan bonds."

Meanwhile, Derkach said that several facts indicate Franklin Templeton Investments' relationship with the U.S. Democratic Party.

"The son of Templeton's founder, John Templeton Jr., was one of President Obama's major campaign donors. Another fund-related character is Thomas Donilon. Managing Director of BlackRock Investment Institute, shareholder Franklin Templeton Investments, which has the largest share in the fund. It is noteworthy that he previously was Obama's national security advisor," Derkach said.

The MP said that the presidents of Ukraine and the United States should combine the efforts of the two countries to establish facts of corruption and money laundering with the participation of citizens of both countries.

"President Zelensky must pick up the phone, dial Trump, ask for help and cooperation in the fight against corruption and fly to Washington. The issue of combating international corruption in Ukraine with the participation of citizens, businessmen and U.S. officials should become a key during the meeting of the two presidents," he said.

Derkach said as a result of the meeting, it is necessary to build interaction between the Ukrainian investigating authorities and the U.S. Department of Justice to obtain information about the organizers of the bond issue, clients and beneficiaries of investment funds for each purchase, interrogate fund officials, etc.

As reported, on October 9, 2019, Derkach published official correspondence between NABU and the U.S. Embassy, according to which the first deputy of the National Anti-Corruption Bureau of Ukraine (NABU), Gizo Uglava, through his assistant Polina Chyzh, for a long time provided the U.S. Embassy with information that negatively affected the course of events in Ukraine and the United States.

Derkach said Chyzh received instructions from the representative of the U.S. Embassy in Ukraine Hanna Emelyanova to provide information on the case involving Zlochevsky.

Derkach also announced the amount of money transferred to representatives of the Burisma Group, including Hunter Biden. According to documents, in general, in favor of Hunter Biden, Alexander Kwasniewski, Alan Apter and Devon Archer, Burisma paid about $16.5 million.

According to Derkach, ex-Prosecutor General Viktor Shokin repeatedly appealed to the NABU Director Artem Sytnyk in the framework of criminal proceedings for Burisma, but constantly received formal responses. The activities of Shokin, according to the MP, irritated then U.S. Vice President Joe Biden during his fifth visit to Kyiv in two years. The visit on December 7-8, 2015, was devoted to solving the issue of Shokin's resignation for the affairs of Zlochevsky and Burisma, he said.

"The subject of pressure was the $1 billion credit guarantee that the United States should have provided to Ukraine: Biden himself acknowledged the pressure in his speech to the U.S. Foreign Relations Council in January 2018," Derkach said.

Whoops, now we know why Schiff is running cover with his impeachment hoax.

Love how the media ignored the indictment of the head of the Burisma group a week ago. One can only wonder why.......

Dear CB,

There you are. Indeed I have read the article and am going to try to find a translator service for that 'delightful' language use in the video along the way.

No. I called out process because I had a real concern about the rule on use of pictures with articles. You remind me that when an article does not have a picture - something can be brought in from outside. Thank you.

Now then to the meat. And because you replied so rapidly, I will include "the meat" question in this comment:

Viktor Yanukovych through the American investment fund Franklin Templeton Investments, which they said has ties to the U.S. Democratic Party.

Is it your understanding that this investigation is into the Yanukovych family and Franklin Templeton and the Democratic Party?

Or,

Is the Democratic Party listed in the article through the means of guilt by association by its writer? Clarification needed, please.

Well the article said that money laundering was done in both countries through a investment fund close to democrat representatives. 

Doesn't that mean in liberal conspiracy world that Democrats are corrupt? Oh wait nevermind.

What means this mockery? What media do you have internationally besides that you trust and think we should trust also? After all, are those men in the video speaking in what language? Ukrainian? What? Do you understand the words coming out of their mouths? Oh sure, I got "Hunter Biden" and "Joe Biden" which leads me ask what about them are they saying?

Moreover, are these two serious government officials? Or, are they the Ukraine versions of U.S. republican representatives Devin Nunes or Jim Jordan, firebrands both looking to sent people down detracting rabbit holes?! Do these MPs have the support of the President of Ukraine for their questioning? I don't know if any of my line of questioning 'fits' in a foreign setting. But we can start there.

Finally, what Donald Trump actually is in impeachment troubles for harking back to the Intel Committee and Intel Chief Schiff is a violation of U.S. law which makes it illegal for U.S. campaigns to seek political dirt on their opposition from international sources.

First, I can hear my friend 'fish going on about one can write anything, he means anything, into a Wiki real or imagined. So, not a good reference for this MP.

Secondly, as testified to in the Impeachment Hearing, too much about this small and apparently desperate country is up in the air and needs "settling" before we can validate who the players are (cred) and what their intentions are.

- All on this.

Breaking news from Pravda? Hearings going badly for Putin and Trump? Desperate for any diversions?  

Two Ukrainians? This is the equivalent of Nunes and Gohmert still demanding that Hillary's e-mails be investigated seven years and eleven investigations later.

Let's be honest. Congress isn't about to make it illegal for their wives, children and relatives to profit from access to power. 

The impeachment hearings are going abysmally for Trump and Putin so it is no surprise they are manufacturing fake news stories to spread a false narrative trying to confuse Americans and divert our attentions from the mounting evidence of Trump's high crimes and abuse of office. 

In the end, just consider the sources. Nyet to Pravda...

Spin it

The moonbat's bogus impeachment is nothing but cover for the biden quid pro quo and the amazing job his crack smoking loser son landed. Looks like he got paid a lot more than he reported though. Everything you told us on the Fake Russia hoax turned out to be well fake. So why should we believe you now? Schlonging Hillary in the 2016 election once again is not a crime.

Oooops!

So.....if this all works out.... the entire business of government in two nations will be investigating political opponents trying to find criminal activity.

This is a fantastic way to keep them from interfering in our daily lives.  

I have suggested for years that the United States would be better off if we sent everyone in both houses of Congress on a 2 year golfing adventure to the Bahamas.  This is much better.  They get to appear to be "working"....but in fact are simply staying out of the way of people who actually work.  I wish I had thought of this.
