Millions of donations by the “Batkivshchyna” party headed by Yulia Tymoshenko were formally donated by the manicurist, the unemployed and the student, but in fact, those funds were donated by political sponsors, among them the fugitive People’s Deputy Alexander Onishchenko.
According to the data provided in the investigation of the project “Our money”, a record number of “donations” were scattered on the accounts of hundreds of Ukrainians, “but in fact, influential businessmen and politicians turned out to be sources of large cash infusions,” Alexander Onishchenko in particular.
“Batkivshchyna” party headed by Yulia Tymoshenko in 2018 gathered a record “harvest” of donations. “From simple Ukrainians,” the party representatives claimed.
Millions of hryvnia were donated to “Batkivshchyna” by a manicure master, unemployed person, student, and supermarket vendor, the latter was a lead to the actual “shadow sponsor of the“ Tymoshenko’s party,” states the description to the story.
So, the vendor from the supermarket Natalia Zubar allegedly gave the party Tymoshenko 1.5 million hryvnias. At the same time, two Kiev firms with a statutory fund of 50 million each is accounted to that woman. These companies do not physically exist, and they themselves are associated with the realizer of the so-called “gas schemes” Alexander Onishchenko, the author of the investigation asserts.
Tymoshenko’s “donor” is also Mikhail Verman, allegedly he gave the party over a million. It is noteworthy that “his” company is also recorded at the same address as the Zubar’s company.
Usually, the talkative fugitive People’s Deputy Onishchenko, who is particularly active on Facebook, has not responded to the investigation of the Denis Bigus project.
Comments from Yulia Tymoshenko or the press service of the “Batkivshchyna” have not been received yet either. At the same time, Tymoshenko had previously stated that “entrepreneurs were forced to transfer donations to the accounts of the ‘Batkivshchyna’ civil society on behalf of their relatives because they were afraid of repression by the authorities”.
