Austria sent a request to Ukraine's Prosecutor General's Office seeking assistance in an investigation regarding transactions carried out by Head of the Presidential Administration Borys Lozhkin.

This is announced by Petro Poroshenko Bloc - Solidarity MP Serhii Leshchenko in his blog at Ukrainska Pravda, Censor.NET reports.

According to Leshchenko, Lozhkin is mentioned in a criminal proceeding under the article "money laundering."

"Questionable transfers of multi-million sums have drawn the attention of a special bureau within Austria's Federal Ministry of the Interior, which is responsible for investigating money laundering and cooperates with banking institutions on suspicious transactions in the country. March 2015, the bureau addressed a special prosecutor's office claiming suspicion of money laundering by three Ukrainian citizens," Leshchenko says.

According to the MP, except for Lozhkin, two more Ukrainian citizens are featured in the case. Austria's request for bilateral legal assistance was received by Prosecutor General Shokin a few weeks ago and kept in strict secrecy.

"According to some sources at the Presidential Administration, it concerns Lozhkin's selling Ukrainian Media Holding in 2013 to Serhii Kurchenko's firms when money was transferred from one offshore companies to others via accounts in Austrian banks.

Lozhkin himself says that "neither Ukrainian nor Austrian law enforcement authorities got in touch with him," Leshchenko says.
