Ukrainian journalist Serhiy Lyamets in the “What was that?”told about “black accounting” of the Party of regions, the scandal around the American Ambassador in Ukraine, Marie Yovanovitch, and the relations between Ukraine and the USA.
What is the scandal surrounding Jovanovic
In an interview with us media, the Prosecutor General Yuri Lutsenko said on the list of “untouchables” of Ukrainians, which he allegedly personally handed the US Ambassador in Ukraine, Marie Yovanovitch.
In addition, he assured that he categorically rejected the American Diplomate a request not to prosecute certain individuals. On Lutsenko’s statement almost immediately reacted to the U.S. state Department, calling it a blatant fiction.
Some experts believe the direct attack of the state office of public Prosecutor on the Ambassador’s response to recent statements by the Jovanovic – about the ineffectiveness of the fight against corruption in Ukraine. In particular, she called for the dismissal of the head of the Specialized anti-corruption Prosecutor’s office of Nazar Golodnitsky.
The scandal around the American Ambassador
– If Lutsenko decided to do it, it means that there is something powerful line of attack. If he did not have any warranty or support, then it would be better supported in Ukraine Yulia Tymoshenko or somebody else. He would never outright attack on the most powerful player in Ukrainian politics – US Ambassador Marie Yovanovitch.

. Now got a great chance to build on some real facts on the investigation of the involvement of Ukraine in the elections of the President of the United States, which may open a new PR company. In addition, I think that this is the beginning of a very powerful PR campaign against the Democrats in the United States.
About the change of power in the United States
– We always present to US, as something monolithic, unified, and unwavering. Usually the way it was. In recent years, both the authorities and the US Ambassador in Ukraine was submitted by the Democratic party. And here in Ukraine suddenly came to a new reality, which is that the American President is a Republican.
– Actually there is a very deep conflict between the democratic lobby in Ukraine and Republic, which in fact was not. I remember that many criticized in Facebook Donald trump, in particular Ukrainian top politicians. No one could imagine that Hillary Clinton could lose him. Subsequently, the negative posts about the Republican began to disappear.

– Trump was not up to Ukraine. I remember stories of recent years, when Petro Poroshenko and other politicians flew to Washington. To get to the photo shoot with trump, they were forced to pay official lobbyists.
About “black accounting” of the Party of regions
– As a journalist I remember a time when the public discussion was made loud facts about “black accounting” of the Party of regions. And then strangely it so happened that these facts were in NABOO. It was after this they started to work against trump in the US. I think that it is the most painful point, she can push Yuriy Lutsenko.
What is the “black budget” of the Party of Regions?
Documents shadow the accounting Department of the former ruling political party of Ukraine, which was simultaneously made public by investigative journalists and former MPs and officials at the end of may 2016. According to preliminary data, in the given documents describe payments totaling approximately $ 2 billion.
What do loud statements Lutsenko
– I think that Lutsenko plays in his own future, the future of some of its political project and to some extent in the future of Ukraine. Indeed, Trump has proven that Ukraine played an important role in the fact that he almost lost the election and won with very little margin. Therefore, for the American President this is a kind of satisfaction.
– He can become President of the United States a second time, much points to that. It is popular among the poor. Trump can get a lot of time on that, in his view, to restore order in Ukraine.
It’s not a very pleasant thing. When you begin hunting for fighters, somehow, benefit the corrupt officials. I think that the States can begin some investigation regarding how he appeared and got in the Embassy documents from the NEB, for example.
Look in the “What was that?”.
