Office of the President of Ukraine
According to Zelensky, this investigation failed to find anything new against him. The Ukrainian leader stressed that he had a sense of déjà vu since 2019. Then his rival, the former President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko, also talked about these offshores.
“This is all an old story. I heard it all, saw it all, all these details. I am glad that I did not see any new detail. This suggests that since 2019, Comrade Peter has not found anything for me as the President of Ukraine, ”Zelensky commented.
Zelensky admitted that during the presidency of Viktor Yanukovych, all businesses related to television and the media had companies abroad. The Ukrainian leader called it “business structuring”. However, he noted that he was not involved in money laundering.
The massive investigation was published by the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists (ICIJ) on October 3. It is dedicated to uncovering the secret assets of presidents, monarchs and other high political figures. Among the defendants were Zelensky, Aliyev, the King of Jordan and the Queen of Great Britain.
