Journalist Dmytro Hnap wrote on Facebook, referring to the leaked documents of Panamanian law firm Mossack Fonseca, Censor.NET reports.
"President's favorite Ihor Kononenko has perfectly learned two principles of British diplomacy: 1. Do not cheat. 2. Do not tell the whole truth. And what if the truth yet becomes known?
"Take a look at this document. This is an asset declaration of Virgin Islands' offshore company Intraco Management Ltd. Previously, the media reported this company to be linked to Ihor Kononenko and Petro Poroshenko. My colleague Denys Kazanskyi has published documents showing that this is the offshore company which paid for vacation and abroad studies of Kononenko's daughter. It also covered Poroshenko's charter flights after he assumed presidency.
"In addition, the firm is said to have been involved in a variety of suspicious transactions. In particular, according to Liga.net, it bought fuel in fall of 2014 from a subsidiary of Russia's Gazprom. Kononenko then denied any ties of Poroshenko and himself with Intraco Management Ltd. And I must admit he was telling the truth. But only partially. Just have a look at the beneficiary of the company. According to Panamanian registrar Mossack Fonseca, it is citizen of Ukraine Serhii Zaitsev. A person with the same first and last name is deputy CEO of Roshen corporation. At present, he also co-owns Central European Confectionery Company Ltd together with the president himself," Hnap notes.
"Formerly, Serhii Zaitsev was a classmate and first business partner of Petro Poroshenko. In the 1990s, they together imported cocoa to Ukraine. The document sets out Zaitsev's registration address - 29 Elektrykiv Str., Kyiv. It is at this address on Rybalskyi Island in Kyiv that a bunch of companies of old friends is registered: Poroshenko, Kononenko, Zaitsev, Svynarchuk (Hladkovskyi). So, when Kononenko says he doesn't know what Intraco Management Ltd deals with, it is not too difficult for him to figure it out and ask the firm's owner in the next room why he covers personal needs of Kononenko and Poroshenko," Hnap adds.
