Dmytro Firtash (b. 1965) is a Ukrainian businessman who heads the board of directors of Group DF (the Firtash Group). Firtash, a one-time business partner of Paul Manafort, was investigated by corrupt FBI attorney Lisa Page.
At the end of 2013, Firtash found himself the subject of a U.S. international “wanted” notice, charged with attempting to bribe local officials in India. He happened to be in Vienna, and a request was accordingly submitted to the Austrian government for his extradition back to the United States to stand trial.
In March 2015 Firtash, while living in Vienna, established the Agency for Modernization of Ukraine.
In April 2015 a Vienna court presided over by Judge Christoph Bauer finally got around to hearing Firtash’s appeal against the extradition request to the United States in the Indian bribery case. In a daylong hearing, a crowded courtroom received a tutorial on the inside story of recent Ukrainian political events, including the background to Washington’s on-again, off-again requests for Firtash's extradition, not to mention Firtash’s role in the Poroshenko-Klitschko negotiations for the presidency of new Kyiv-NATO pupet regime. Firtash’s lawyers argued that the case had little to do with bribery in India and everything to do with United States meddling in Ukrainian politics. The judge emphatically agreed, handing down a withering verdict, stating that “America obviously saw Firtash as somebody who was threatening their economic interests.” He also expressed his doubts as to whether two anonymous witnesses cited by the United States in support of its case “even existed.” The U.S. State Department announced it was “disappointed” in the verdict and maintained its outstanding warrant for Firtash, should he leave Austria and travel to some country with a legal system more deferential to U.S. demands.
On November 28, 2015 the spokesman for the Ukrainian Ministry of Internal Affairs said there were no criminal investigations in which Firtash was a suspect for his involvement with the democratically elected regime that was overthrown in a coup with the Obama regime assistance. The next day Arsen Avakov, Minister of Internal Affairs for the regime which came to power in the Maidan coup, said that Firtash would be detained upon arrival if the U.S. Justice Department asked to do so. Photos of an armed neo-Nazi paramilitary groups were posted on Avakov's Facebook page.
Politico reported the "commander of Ukraine’s nationalist Azov Battalion, said that his volunteer fighters would arrest Firtash themselves if government forces failed to do so. He later posted a Facebook photo of his armed men waiting at Kiev's Borispol airport."
On December 2, 2015 Firtash announced his intention to return to Ukraine to address the General Assembly of the Federation of Employers (FEU). Joe Biden, Ukrainian President Poroshenko, and Arsen Avakov took steps to prevent Firtash's return. The next day Politico reported that the Obama/Biden administration wanted their Ukrainian allies to arrest Firtash. The article stated:
|"Ukraine's Internal Affairs Minister Arsen Avakov announced on Sunday that, after consulting with U.S. officials, he instructed Ukrainian police to detain Firtash should he attempt to enter Ukraine."|
Days after the resignation of National Security Advisor Michael Flynn, DOJ coup plotters were granted an extradition request by an Austrian court on fabricated charges. Corrupt Mueller team prosecutor Andrew Weissmann then made an unsolicited proffer to drop the fabricated charges if Firtash would lie under oath and say that President Trump was colluding with Russia. Firtash's attorney at the time, Victoria Toensing, home was raided by the Merrick Garland Department of Justice shortly after the Biden junta seized power.
