Why is Igor Mazepa's Concord Capital considered a workshop for corrupt officials? Well-known three former employees of the company of oligarchs
The new presidential election has become one of the most unusual in history. Ukrainians voted for a new face in the hope of reform and dramatic change. And one of the most important changes was the cessation of upholding the interests of the oligarchs. But it turned out that the election promises remained promises, and among the president’s entourage there were individuals who still collaborate with the oligarchs.
The first thing that attracted attention was the appointment of Igor Bogdan, who is Kolomoisky’s lawyer, to the presidential administration. After him appeared Andrei Gerus, who became the representative of the president. But who is this?
We learn more by reading the biography of Andrei Gerus. He received a diploma in economics cybernetics, and became a master of administration. He began his career as an investment analyst, and later as a director at Galnaftogaz.
Gerus continued to develop at Concorde Capital as a director. After graduating from Maidan, he becomes a member of the NKREKU (National Commission implementing state regulation in the fields of energy and utilities). But less than a year later, Andrei left his post and returned to Igor Mazepa. Officially it is believed that he resigned from public office, because he was on the list for lustration. This is easy to refute by examining the list. The name of Gerus was not in him.
For three years, the tax service of Nasirov issued installments for more than 18 billion UAH to 70 companies. Most of this money went to Rinat Akhmetov and his enterprises.
In addition, in 2015, Nasirov was noted in scandals to cover up unregistered apartments in London and his wife’s business. Despite these frauds, he was reinstated in the position of the SFS. Igor Mazepa, along with Kolomoisky, considers Nasirov his man.
Nasirov and Ivanyuk are now deputies and representatives of Petro Poroshenko. It is impossible to get rid of corruption if presidents change, but their environment does not.
Igor Mazepa himself is a member of major scams. His name has long been associated with the word "scammer." Many times, Mazepa has been blamed in the media for collaborating with oligarchs.
