Hennadiy Korban’s off-the-book, being partially published by General Prosecutor’s Office, is likely to be genuine. Such thought was expressed by people’s deputy of Ukraine, Deputy Head of the Committee of Verkhovna Rada on the prevention and fight against corruption.

«Should we trust such documents, the so-called Hennadiy Korban’s off-the-book? At least, they should be taken into account, because it is a known fact that such off-the-book exists in the majority of political forces. It is not a surprise for our society. People know well that most of the politicians use political funds and get salary from such funds, – Viktor Chumak claims. – Why it has been published, because it is difficult to prove it in the course of procedural order, it is a political corruption. That is why prosecutor’s office published it, because it cannot be used as evidence in the criminal proceedings. But it can be used as an evidence of political corruption».

It is to be recalled that in December 2015 General Prosecutor’s Office of Ukraine published records, which were found during searches, carried out in the apartment of Hennadiy Korban, leader of political party «UKROP». General Prosecutor’s Office states that found records point at the maintenance of off-the-book and raider seizure of a number of enterprises.

In particular, there are records with fixed facts of many arrival and payments regarding the raider seizure of «Amstor» supermarket chain by the company «Smart-Holding» (belongs to  oligarch, people’s deputy of the Opposition block Vadim Novinskii), famous blogger Anton Shwets states. According to the information from the documents, 15.01.2015 Mikoltesia company  (It has been written in parentheses ‘Smart’) transferred 2 mln. dollars to Korban’s account. 30.04.2015 Korban received 1 mln. dollars from the same company. At that, there are marks in the documents concerning Korban’s expenses for the project «Amstor» – they constitute 700 thous. dollars, Shvets points out.

Whereas Viktor Chumak marks that, «these documents can become documents of procedural character, if there is investigation and proceedings».

It is to be recalled that on 31 December 2014 armed people raided supermarkets of the «Amstor» chain all over Ukraine, they called themselves the representatives of new management – «Smart-Holding» company (property of Russian oligarch with Ukrainian passport Vadim Novitskii). Legal attack was carried out before that – with the help of forged documents, with the assistance of employees of the State Registration Service, there had been performed illegal change of «Amstor» founders. Recently most of the enterprises of «Amstor» group of companies are in the process of bankruptcy, part of their premises was transferred to the «Silpo» chain for long-term lease.

Valery Karpuntsov also commented on the information about Gennady Korban’s “black books” containing data on collusion between Dnepropetrovsk businessman and “Smart-Holding” of Vadim Novinsky regarding the illegal takeover of the supermarket chain “Amstor”. Back in January the famous blogger Anton Shvets wrote, that Korban’s records contain the amount of money income and payouts related to the raid of “Amstor”. According to the information from documents, 15.01.2015 2 million dollars were transferred to Koban’s account from the company Mikoltesia (with “Smart” written in brackets). 30.04.2015 Korban receives another one million dollars from the same company.  There are also notes about Korban’s expenses on the project “Amstor” – a total amount of more than 700 thousand dollars, as Shvets noted.

“Yes, I do recall. There was enough information. As far as I remember it has been reported publicly that there is an “Amstor” proceeding, and more than one. Thus, the investigations of the documentation is being held within one of these proceedings”, – V. Karpuntsov said.

It’s worth reminding, that on December 31, 2015 armed men, calling themselves the representatives of the new management – the company “Smart-Holding” (owned by Russian oligarch with Ukrainian passport Vadim Novinsky), burst into the supermarkets of “Amstor” chain throughout Ukraine. The legal attack took e7a96b85882906b243392d49f4adbc026726d24a9698c064df02f3e07f9a0b06place prior to that – the “Amstor” founders’ names were changed using forged documents and with the help of State Registration Service workers. As of today, the proceedings with respect to the majority of
the “Amstor” company group enterprises are opened, and part of stores premises is transferred for the long-term lease to “Silpo” chain.

According to the activists, the Ukrainian corruption resembles a fairy-tale three-headed dragon. You cut one head – two grow in its place! It is impossible to kill the virus with one sword, changing the legislation is extremely difficult. We need only a demonstrative execution of corrupt officials!

Who is stronger, the Dragon or Vadim Vladislavovich?!

For two years Maidan have been fighting against corruption, but the activists are still unable to eliminate the cancer metastases yet. Ukraine remains the most corrupt country in Europe. In the rating of the non-governmental international organization for combating corruption Transparency International, our country is among such countries as Afghanistan, Sudan, North Korea and Somalia. “26 out of possible 100 points and 142nd out of 175 positions – these are indicators of Ukraine 11in the current Corruption Perception Index of Transparency International.

Almost a year has passed since December 2014 when one of the largest retail chains “Amstor” was subject to illegal takeover by the representatives of “Smart-Holding,” owned by oligarch Vadim Novinsky. Immediately after the takeover the raider presented “loud” statements on “prompt launch of a trading network”, addressing the staff with promises of cloudless future in the workplace, announcing significant investments in the development of “Amstor”.

However, the situation resulted only in bankruptcy. Everything was organized and directed in a very short term, in a hurry, violating numerous legal rules with the cooperation and full support of the corrupt court staff, police, prosecutors, tax authorities of Dnipropetrovsk region.

The future bankruptcy of “Amstor” was announced immediately after the takeover. Many experts reminded that “Smart-Holding” performed more than one illegal takeover and bankruptcy procedure. There was a time when the country was shaken by the events associated with virtually a destruction of the shipbuilding industry in Ukraine owing to privatization and subsequent bankruptcy of Kherson and Black Sea shipbuilding companies of Novinsky, “Ocean” plant, privatization and further removal from the register of owners of Inguletsk mining and processing complex which was the largest in Ukraine. One of the latest schemes is a fraud with obtaining refinancing and loss of assets of “Forum” bank. All these drastic events were directly related to “Smart-Holding” of Novinskiy.

Professionals in artificial bankruptcy from the group of raiders led by Novinskiy completed the destruction of another Ukrainian company

Not long ago, some online-based media reported the news – the companies of SC “Amstor” were declared bankrupt. After the raider attacks in December 2014 and the “expedient” management by “Smart-Holding” once a successful retailing chain “Amstor” quickly turned into a “scorched land lot” and joined other Ukrainian companies, which started the process of artificially managed bankruptcy. Everything was organized and directed in a very short term, in a hurry, violating numerous legal rules with the cooperation and full support of the corrupt court staff, police, prosecutors, tax authorities of Dnipropetrovsk region.

“Amstor” taken over by the raiders implemented a cynical scheme previously developed: complete interruption of economic activities, accumulation of debts due to the bankruptcy scheme, transfer of assets and cash flow to the newly created companies controlled by “Smart-Holding”. The “deserted” companies preserved only preserved multibillion debts to creditors – numerous suppliers and banks, including state-owned ones. The property of the company taken over is being stolen and sold according to corruption schemes, without payment of taxes to the budget and without the transfer of funds to the accounts of companies owning the property, with the tacit consent and omission of the corrupt power structures. Someone is lining pockets on that; the state is also affected as it incurs multi-million losses.
