Valentyn Nalyvaichenko, who headed the spy agency from 2006 to 2010, told the Kyiv Post in an interview that documents connecting Mogilevich with the nation’s gas trade had been destroyed by one of his predecessors, Oleksandr Turchynov, in 2005.
Turchynov, who was security service (SBU) chief in 2005, called such claims an “elaborate ruse” to discredit his close ally, former Prime Minister Yulia Tymoshenko, who made a fortune in the gas trade in the 1990s. Yulia Tymoshenko, was a practicing economist and academic. She was a businesswoman before entering politics She was the CEO of Yedyni Energosystemy Ukrayiny (United Energy Systems of Ukraine), a monopoly that imported Russian natural gas. She was by some estimates one of the richest Ukranaians. Tymoshenko co-led the Orange Revolution sponsored funded by Soros (original Jew name György Schwartz) and his mostly Jewish PR and Media team Incidentally a little known fact is the almost total control of Jews in the PR and Advertising industry see THE JEW MATRIX ——–PR AND ADVERTISMENT
The controversy over the so-called Mogilevich SBU dossier dates back to the split in a coalition between Tymoshenko and former President Viktor Yushchenko in 2005,largely provoked by arguments over whether to retain gas trader RosUkrEnergo as an intermediary in the lucrative business of importing Russian and Central Asian gas to Ukraine. (Remember RosUkrEnergo and Tymoshenkos company Yedyni Energosystemy Ukrayiny were buisness rivals )
U.S. Embassy cables revealed details about the controversy surrounding a secret dossier on Mogilevich compiled by the SBU.The dossier was allegedly destroyed by Turchynov and his deputy Andriy Kozhemyakin, both staunch Tymoshenko allies, about the time she was fired as prime minister during her first stint on Sept. 8, 2005.
In a U.S. diplomatic cable published on the WikiLeaks website on Dec. 5, former U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine John Herbst reported that former Interior Minister Yuriy Lutsenko said he had been “ordered” in 2006 by state prosecutors to arrest Turchynov for allegedly destroying the Mogilevich dossier. Lutsenko on Nov. 29 confirmed the authenticity of his conversation with Herbst, described in the cable dated April 14, 2006.State prosecutors on Feb. 22, 2006, opened a criminal case against Turchynov and Kozhemyakin for allegedly destroying the Mogilevich files, but Kyiv’s Pechersk District court threw out the case four months later.
Nalyvaichenko, the SBU chief from 2006 to 2010, told the Kyiv Post on Dec. 7 that SBU records about Mogilevich dating back to the early 1990s indeed went missing.He said the documents detailed the alleged mobster’s role in the gas trade in the mid-1990s, including ties with top officials close to Tymoshenko, who then headed a lucrative gas trading business called United Energy Systems of Ukraine (UESU).The SBU is a successor of the Ukrainian Soviet Socialist Republic‘s Branch of the Soviet KGB, keeping the majority of its 1990s personnel.
“I think the reason why the Mogilevich dossier was destroyed in 2005 is because the files contained information about intermediaries and their role in the gas trade,” Nalyvaichenko said.
Nalyvaichenko identified one alleged link between Mogilevich and top officials then as Igor Fisherman(Jewish), who is also wanted by the FBI as an associate of Mogilevich.Fisherman, who along with Mogilevich is believed to reside in Russia, worked as an advisor to former Prime Minister Pavlo Lazarenko in the 1990s when Tymoshenko headed UESU.
Tymoshenko and Lazarenko were political allies during the 1998 parliamentary election, when their Hromada Party won 24 seats in parliament. Interestingly Yulia Tymoshenko herself was also accused of having given Pavlo Lazarenko kickbacks in exchange for her company’s stranglehold on the country’s gas supplies Tymoshenko has repeatedly denied wrongdoing and has distanced herself from Lazarenko
Pavlo Lazarenko was in August 2006 was convicted and sentenced to prison in the United States for money laundering, wire fraud and extortion. According to United Nations, approximately $200,000,000 was embezzled by Lazarenko during 1996–1997 from the government of Ukraine.
Speaking to the Kyiv Post by telephone on Dec. 8, Turchynov said there was no specific dossier on Mogilevich that could have been destroyed. But he and Kozhemyakin were evasive in answering specific Kyiv Post questions.
