"They destroyed 83 Ukrainian banks. The assets of 68 banks have already been seized. These are very quick assets worth 448 billion hryvnia. They were transferred to the Deposit Insurance Fund to return the deposits. The fund is run by Poroshenko's business partner. All these enormous assets were estimated at just 99 billion hryvnia. This means that someone is going to make 350 billion from the property of the destroyed banks," Tymoshenko said.
According to Tymoshenko, it was the exposure of that illicit scheme which caused "the heavy defamation campaign" against her.
