NACP called on the ministry of finance of russia to provide information about Ukrainian and russian officials who stole $ 5 billion from the Russian budget allocated for subversive activities in Ukraine

The Head of the National Agency on Corruption Prevention (NACP) Oleksandr Novikov sent a letter to the ministry of finance of the russian federation and the main control department of the president of russia. In the letter, he demands to indicate which Ukrainian and russian officials have been involved in subversive activities in Ukraine in 2014-2022 funded from russia’s budget to further verify their asset declarations and indicate if they use this money in their own interests. 

Thus, the Ukrainian media have repeatedly reported on the creation and support of a network of “agents of influence” of russia in Ukraine. Such “agents of influence” were mainly sent to promote so-called “russian values”, and the total amount of funds allocated for their “activities” from the Russian budget was more than $5 billion.

“It is worth mentioning the impressive budget directed from the pockets of Russian taxpayers for subversive activities on the territory of Ukraine. This amount of expenses make up more than a third of the cost of a stake in Sberbank, one of the most popular banks among Russian residents, whose shares were previously valued at $13 billion on the London Stock Exchange. Now, obviously, such a comparison is inappropriate, because, after the application of a package of sanctions against the Russian Federation, the bank’s shares collapsed and lost 99.9% of its value from the beginning of the year,” the letter said.

The Head of the NACP also added that according to media reports, former presidential aide Vladislav Surkov, General Volodymyr Chernov, his successor Igor Maslov, the head of the 5th FSB Service, General Serhiy Beseda, the head of the Ros Cooperation, and other Russian officials are suspected of embezzlement.

In response to the letter, the russian finance minister’s office said that they could not use e-mail to receive correspondence, and suggested using fax, the services of the russian post, or some system they use for communicating with other authorities.

The original letter is available at the link.

the translation in English is available below.

To Control and Audit Office of the Ministry of Finance of the Russian Federation

To Main Department of the Federal Treasury of the Ministry of Finance of the Russian Federation

To Main Control Department of the President of the Russian Federation

 

The National Agency on Corruption Prevention (the Agency) as a central executive body with a special status, which, in accordance with the provisions of the Law of Ukraine “On the Corruption Prevention” ensures the formation and implementation of the state anti-corruption policy, addresses the authorized authorities of the Russian Federation in order to establish the following circumstances.

 

In accordance with the materials published in a number of Ukrainian and foreign media, from 2014 to 2022, the Russian Federation, represented by state officials, carried out actions aimed at financing the creation and cultivation of a network of agents of influence, carrying out propaganda, agitation, as well as subversive activities on the territory of Ukraine. The declared amount of funding for the relevant activities amounted to more than $5 billion.

 

It is worth mentioning the impressive budget directed from the pockets of Russian taxpayers for subversive activities on the territory of Ukraine. This amount of expenses make up more than a third of the cost of a stake in Sberbank, one of the most popular banks among Russian residents, whose shares were previously valued at $13 billion on the London Stock Exchange. Now, obviously, such a comparison is inappropriate, because, after the application of a package of sanctions against the Russian Federation, the bank’s shares collapsed and lost 99.9% of its value from the beginning of the year.

 

The media materials mentioned above inform that recently the President of the Russian Federation has issued an order to conduct an inspection on the use of funds allocated for the implementation of subversive activities, in connection with the availability of data indicating signs of their obvious embezzlement.

 

According to the media, former presidential aide Vladislav Surkov, former head of the Department for Cultural and Public Relations with Neighboring Countries General Vladimir Chernov, his successor Igor Maslov, Head of the 5th Federal Security Service (FSB) Office General Sergei Beseda, Head of “Rossotrudnichestvo” state enterprise Yevgeny Primakov, as well as other officials of the Russian Federation are suspected of embezzlement of mentioned funds.

 

Considering the nature of subversive activities aimed at illegally changing the established public order, state structure, and/or existing structures of power, there is a reason to believe that persons authorized to perform the functions of the state or local self-government could be involved in such activities on the territory of Ukraine.

 

In accordance with the requirements of the Law of Ukraine “On Corruption Prevention”, these entities are subject to the requirements of financial control, which, among other things, provide for the annual submission of an income declaration.

 

Based on the foregoing, the Agency applies to the authorized authorities of the Russian Federation in order to request a list of persons involved in subversive activities on the territory of Ukraine for further verification of their declarations for inclusion in the income of “agent payments” received from the Russian Federation.
