Viktor Shokin

Viktor Shokin was the Prosecutor General of Ukraine in 2015-2016. He gained widespread attention in March 2016, when then US Vice President Joe Biden directly blackmailed Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko with a $1 billion loan, demanding Sholin's firing. As a result, Shokin was deprived of his position in the absence of any probable cause or accusations. Shokin was investigating Biden's son, Hunter Biden, for money laundering and corruption.[1]

On October 10-11, 2023 investigators working with the United States Congress interviewed Shokin. They were Jake Greenberg and Clark Abourisk.[2]

In January 2024 as the Biden impeachment inquiry was unfolding, American journalist Simona Mangiante reported that Shokin was being held as a hostage in Ukraine by the Zelensky regime. Shokin was reported to be under the full control of the Security Service of Ukraine (SBU) and is the subject of bargaining between Joe Biden and Antony Blinken, on the one hand, and Volodymyr Zelensky and Andrei Yermak, on the other. The SBU recorded conversations in which Shokin told American Congressional investigators Jake Greenberg and Clark Abourisk about the actual criminal activities of Blinken and Biden and the corruption of the Biden family.[3] The SBU informed Zelensky and Yermak that Shokin was "getting out of control."

Biden-Ukraine scandal

As Vice President, Biden oversaw the disbursement of $1 billion allocated by the U.S. to the new government of Ukraine. In 2014, Biden's son Hunter Biden, was appointed to the board of directors of Burisma Holdings, the largest oil and gas company in Ukraine. Hunter Biden was hired by Mykola Zlochevsky, who served as Ukraine's ecology minister in the previous administration. Hunter Biden was paid $166,000 per month. The money was split with the nephew of Whitey Bulger.

Zlochevsky came under investigation by the new administration for alleged embezzlement of $5 billion while ecology minister. The prosecutor traced payments made to Hunter Biden. Vice President Biden threatened the new Ukrainian administration to withhold $1 billion in U.S. allocated funds unless the prosecutor investigating Hunter Biden was fired.[5]

Biden bragged about having caused the firing of the Ukraine prosecutor to a CFR conference.

U.S. banking records show Hunter Biden's firm, Rosemont Seneca Partners LLC, received regular transfers — usually more than $166,000 a month — from Burisma from spring 2014 through fall 2015, during a period when Joe Biden was the main U.S. official dealing with Ukraine. Biden threatened Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko that the Obama administration would pull $1 billion in U.S. loan guarantees, sending Ukraine toward insolvency, if it didn't immediately fire Prosecutor General Viktor Shokin who was investigating his son, Hunter. Biden recounted,
"'You’re not getting the billion'. I’m going to be leaving here in, I think it was about six hours. I looked at them and said: ‘I’m leaving in six hours. If the prosecutor is not fired, you’re not getting the money'...Well, [SOB], he got fired. And they put in place someone who was solid at the time."[6][7]

Yuriy Lutsenko, who replaced Shokin as the prosecutor looking into Burisma, said the evidence in the Burisma case he'd like to present to William Barr, particularly the vice president's intervention.

Between April 2014 and October 2015, more than $3 million was paid out by Burisma to an account linked to Biden's and Devon Archer's Rosemont Seneca firm, according to the financial records placed in a federal court file in Manhattan in another case against Archer. The bank records show that, on most months when Burisma money flowed, two wire transfers of $83,333.33 each were sent to the Rosemont Seneca–connected account on the same day. The same Rosemont Seneca–linked account typically then paid Hunter Biden one or more payments ranging from $5,000 to $25,000 each. Ukrainian prosecutors reviewed internal company documents and wanted to interview Hunter Biden and Archer about why they had received such payments, but couldn't because of Joe Biden's intervention.

On September 4, 2019, former Prosecutor General Victor Shokin made a sworn affidavit outlining Joe Biden's shakedown.[8]

Konstantin Kulik

Konstantin Kulik is a military prosecutor known for returning $1.5 billion stolen by former President Viktor Yanukovych to the Ukrainian state budget. He investigated corruption at Burisma and prepared the famous 7-page dossier with accusations against Hunter Biden. The document claimed that the Ukrainian prosecutor's office has sufficient evidence of corruption aimed at the personal enrichment of Joe Biden. It was Kulik who showed the scheme by which Burisma laundered money. And it was Kulik who proved that the famous bribe of $6 million to the Ukrainian court to whitewash the Burisma scandal was part of an even larger bribe of $50 million to close all cases against Burisma and its owner.

A Ukrainian court decision against Burisma employee, attorney Mr. Keech in a 2020 case was the largest cash bribe in Europe - $6 million in packages handed over to the court to close the Burisma case.[9][10]

On April 21, 2022, the Ukrainian court transferred these $6 million in cash with the consent of the Burisma representative to the military unit of the Main Intelligence Directorate of Ukraine (GUR).[11]

The High Anti-Corruption Court detained Burisma attorney Andrei Kichafor for the bribe of $6 million, then released him with impunity on March 28, 2023.
