Igor Valerevich Kolomoisky is in a difficult situation. And Petro Poroshenko, whose surrounding frankly missed the swelling abscess in the form of a powerful opposition, is already faced with a blatant mud-slinging through incessant leaks in oligarch-controlled media.
About the effectiveness of such leaks, no matter how immoral and ridiculous, ask Oleg Lyashko, who lost a huge percentage of potential voters in a targeted bombardment from Channel 1+1.
It becomes quite obvious that as a result of negotiations around the coalition, Arseniy Yatsenyuk, no doubt – a henchman of Igor Valerievich, will not receive positions expected by Kolomoisky.
This situation is clearly not acceptable to the sponsor of Arseniy Petrovych and “Popular Front.”
Privat Group, which is actually in bankruptcy, is not receiving refinancing of Privat Bank from the NBU (National Bank of Ukraine), as it was done during the time of Cubiv, when already lost property was used as a collateral, have not been able to adequately profit from the war, lost assets in Crimea and the East, and has no options for maneuver.
It has to strike. And the target is the President, who controls NBU (through Gontareva), which is a barrier to the implementation of lobbying decisions in favor of Privat. If the Cabinet will not belong to Kolomoisky, the oligarch will lose.
For his part, Poroshenko explicitly accepts the challenge, because all his steps suggest that he is not going to put up with a situation when the head of Dnepropetrovsk region simply “pushes” the President from the political arena, or creates a decorative dummy for New Year’s greetings.
The confrontation escalates. Property expropriations carried out by Kolomoisky using territorial battalions result in attempts to subdue these battalions (which are armed groups with carte blanche to exercise unlawful acts) by the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine.
But these attempts, in turn, instantly are responded with ultimatums to the President by commanders of these battalions.
The commanders now have diplomatic immunity (which of course, no one will cancel at this point for the most ridiculous reasons).
As soon as the Prosecutor General of Ukraine began to initiate criminal proceedings against Privat Group, on the counts of use of force and abuse of power, a massive media attack on Vitaly Yarema immediately began.
He is the evil, he is the hidden enemy. Ukrainians are able to instantly flip a switch with help of absolutely controlled media. And now all seriously believe that the resignation of Yarema will solve some issues.
The issues will be resolved only for the representatives of Privat. For example, for Korban, whose genius was involved in the development of operations near Ilovaisk, leading to tremendous losses.
In fact, everything happens exactly as we predicted. Except that the war will likely be more nasty than I could have imagined a month ago.
