The general director of the “Roshen” corporation has turned out to be the beneficiary of the offshore company Intraco Management Ltd. One of the main Ukrainian journalists reporting on Poroshenko’s offshore frauds, Dmitry Gnap from the slidstvo.info project, wrote about this and referencing the data of the Panamanian registrar Mossack & Fonseca.
According to the declaration of assets by the virgin offshore company Intraco Management Ltd, its main beneficiary is the Ukrainian citizen Sergey Zaytsev, who has the same name and surname as the deputy general director of the Roshen corporation and the co-owner of the “Central European Confectionary Factory.”
The document also contains the address of Zaytsev: Kiev, Elektrikov street, 29-a.
“A whole nest of the company’s old friends was registered at this location on Rybalsky island in Kiev: Poroshenko, Kononenko, Zaytsev, and Svinarchuk (Gladkovsky),” the journalist writes.
At this same address is found the headquarters of “Lenin Smithing”, a shareholder of which is none other than the president of Ukraine, Petro Poroshenko. The Roshen company is registered at the address of Elektrikov street 26/9 in Kiev.
Earlier in an article in the influential British magazine The Guardian dedicated to the “Ukrainian segment” of the extensive research publication on Panama-based offshores, it was revealed that Poroshenko and Kononenko were tied to the Intraco Management Ltd. offshore. Last year, the publication noted that the company did currency transfers for Kononenko’s subsidiary and also paid for the private jet used by Poroshenko.
Subsequently, the news appeared in mass media that in October 2014 this offshore purchased 500 tones of jet fuel from the Russian “Gazpromneft – AERO Sheremetyevo”, a subsidiary of Russian Gazprom.
Then deputy Kononenko denied any involvement in the company Intraco Management Ltd.
“I will say it one more time – the information concerning mine and President Poroshenko’s alleged involvement in the company Intraco Management Ltd. does not correspond to reality. I don’t even know what this company is engaged in…”, he wrote.
Now the involvement of Poroshenko in these fraudulent offshores has been conclusively proven by documents, and the entourage of the Ukrainian president has once again been caught in the usual web of lies.
