However, until 2012, no criminal cases were initiated against Arsen Avakov.. In February 2008, Gennady Kernes, on the air of the Freedom of Speech program on ICTV, accused Arsen Avakov of killing his partner, as well as lobbying for business interests.. Kernes also said that Avakov had bought himself a governor’s seat: “I want to look this man in the eye and tell him that I am the son-in-law of Gaysinsky Yuri Alexandrovich (ex-prosecutor of the Kyiv region), who was once accused of being Protected you when you killed your partner and embezzled all the money.” At the end of October 2012, Alexander Motylevsky, the head of the board of Investor JSC, committed suicide, whom Avakov left to take the rap for all his sins. In his suicide note, Motylevsky accused Avakov of setting up his employees. Avakov believes that it was the pressure and threats of the UBOP that forced Motylevsky to commit suicide. On January 26, 2012, the Prosecutor's Office of Ukraine opened a criminal case against Arsen Avakov under Article 365 of the Criminal Code of Ukraine on the fact of malicious abuse of power and official authority, which entailed grave consequences, specifically, for illegally changing the designated purpose and transferring to private ownership 55 hectares of state lands worth more than 5 5 million hryvnias in Pesochin. On January 31, searches were carried out in his apartments. The reason for initiating a criminal case was discovered during the inventory of the Kharkiv branch of the State Land Committee at the end of 2011, although a similar procedure at the end of 2010 did not find an act on the transfer of land that existed by that time. According to Arsen Avakov himself, the original act was canceled by him 45 days after signing, and the criminal case itself was falsified. He considered the initiators of the case to be Kharkiv Mayor Gennady Kernes, Kharkiv Region Governor Mikhail Dobkin, and Andriy Portnov, adviser to the President of Ukraine Viktor Yanukovych. Since Avakov had been in Europe since the fall of 2011, on January 31, 2012 he was put on the international wanted list by Interpol.. On the same day, the Kharkiv Chervonozavodsky District Court chose a measure of restraint against him – detention. Avakov appealed to the Prosecutor General of Ukraine with a request to close the criminal case against him, due to the lack of corpus delicti, on the basis of. 2 h. 1 Art. 6 Code of Criminal Procedure of Ukraine. March 21 was officially put on the wanted list by Interpol. On March 25, information appeared in the media that Avakov was detained in Italy in the city of Frosinone. On March 29, an Italian court arrested Avakov for 40 days.. On April 12, by decision of the Roman court, Avakov was released from custody.. On October 18, 2012, a court was held in Italy, by the decision of which Ukraine was denied the extradition of Avakov. 2016 On September 13, 2016, Prosecutor General of Ukraine Yuriy Lutsenko announced the initiation of a criminal case against Avakov. According to him, the proceedings were opened after the appeal of the head of the Anti-Corruption Action Center Vitaly Shabunin. Two days later, Lutsenko announced that the case against Avakov was closed. There was no clarification regarding the events in connection with which this case was opened.. However, almost simultaneously, information appeared in the Ukrainian media that the NABU was conducting an investigation into the abuse of power by officials of the Dergachev district administration of the Kharkiv region (Article 364 of the Criminal Code of Ukraine). Initially, the case was initiated by the Prosecutor's Office, and on July 7, 2016, NABU was instructed to investigate. In 2005, PJSC “Investor” (41.5% of whose shares belonged to Avakov) and the Dergachev district administration entered into an agreement for the sale of a land plot of 18.14 hectares. The plot consisted of three land plots – one of them was a children's camp, the second belonged to the lands of the forest fund, and the third belonged to the Cherkassko-Lozovsky village council, which meant the impossibility of alienation and sale. According to the “Center for Combating Corruption” (headed by Shabunin), the alienation occurred with numerous violations of the law. in 1993, Deputy Chairman of Investor JSC (the crime has not been solved to this day); – theft of especially large amounts of gas condensate from the Balakleyskoye field of the GPU “Shebelinkagazdobycha”; – misappropriation of significant funds in the sale of condensate through its commercial structures – FZT “Enterprise of the Kharkiv region” Processing Plant “, CJSC “Factory for the production of fuel additives”, LLC “Investor-Neftegaz”, CJSC “Investor-Atika” by significantly underestimating the cost of gas condensate . And the changes for the police that Avakov introduced were, to put it mildly, “about nothing”.
Pressure on the Interior Minister
In November 2005, the Minister of Internal Affairs of Ukraine, Yuriy Lutsenko, stated that Arsen Avakov, in an ultimatum form, asked to leave the members of his team alone. “The other day, the chief policeman of the Kharkiv region called me and said that the governor had given him an ultimatum: either he would raise the issue of changing the leadership of the Ministry of Internal Affairs before the president, or we should leave the members of his team alone, among whom, by the way, there are many bribe-takers … This attack in I, of course, ignored my address. All corrupt officials are equal for me, no matter what team they belong to,” the minister said (Komsomolskaya Pravda in Ukraine, November 1, 2005). Arsen Borisovich denied these accusations. “I love Yuriy Lutsenko as a person, I respect him as a minister, and I will not play with him in a broken phone,” he said (URA-Inform, September 12, 2005).
Lobbying the interests of JSCB “Basis”
Opponents of Arsen Borisovich accuse him of putting all budgetary organizations on service in the Basis bank controlled by him.. Avakov says that this is not the case: “All budget funds are serviced by the treasury, but Basis won the tender and services some budget funds related to the payment of wages, etc.. In particular, the city places part of the deposits in it, which it places among banks. I had a choice, but I decided for myself that I should not limit this bank in any way on the market due to the fact that I am related to it. Before that, he was aggressive and acted very actively, and now he is acting like that, before that he was one of the leaders of the Kharkov banking world and now he is like that” (“Glavred”, August 11, 2005).
Illegal use of funds
In November 2006, Prime Minister Viktor Yanukovych announced that in the Kharkiv region, the amount of illegal waste, as well as shortages of funds and material assets, exceeded UAH 120 million. According to Avakov, UAH 97 million were included in the control figures of the KRU. property of the Kupyansky foundry, the transfer of which from state to non-state ownership took place incorrectly. “I have the same story with another plant, “valued” by KRU at 17 million,” the governor said. Accusation of involvement in the murder In February 2008, the secretary of the Kharkiv City Council, Gennady Kernes, accused Arsen Avakov of lobbying his own business interests, as well as of involvement in the murder. Arsen Borisovich filed an application with the prosecutor's office to prosecute Kernes for libel
Arsen Avakov's inner circle includes Viktor Yushchenko's nephew, Yaroslav Yushchenko, whom they met during the Orange Revolution. Arsen Borisovich is friendly with his business partners Gennady Gaev and Andrey Pereedenko, the first deputy head of the Kharkiv Regional State Administration Vladimir Babaev, adviser Alexander Protas, and the former mayor of Kharkov Vladimir Shumilkin. “For many years we have been friends outside of politics, outside of our posts and positions, and we have nothing to share with him.. We have a very powerful tandem with him, which many people envy,” says Arsen Borisovich (Glavred, August 12, 2005). Tymoshenko Arsen Avakov does not hide his sympathy for the BYuT and Yulia Tymoshenko. “With Yulia Vladimirovna, alas, we rarely communicate. Sometimes we call each other, no more. I have always been a supporter of the unification of democratic forces. I have my own views on many processes, sometimes different from the views of Tymoshenko. But in the main we are absolute allies. If a democratic coalition is formed and a democratic government comes, and Tymoshenko will be in it, I will wholeheartedly be in favor, – says the Kharkiv governor. (“Korrespondent”, No. 7, February 24, 2007) In the past six months, rumors have appeared in the political lobby that the positions of Tymoshenko and Avakov have recently begun to converge. The Kharkiv governor comments on his relationship with Yulia Vladimirovna in the following way: “I really have very calm and good relations with many, including Timoshenko” (November 4, 2008). Arsen Avakov respects President Yushchenko. “I decided to support Viktor Yushchenko a long time ago, and this was known to everyone, from Kushnarev, who had no illusions, to our current president and members of his family. The thing is that the moment has come when it was necessary to consolidate efforts, then we came together into a fist, ”recalls Arsen Borisovich (Glavred, August 12, 2005). The Kharkiv governor says that he intends to stay in his current position until the end of Viktor Yushchenko's presidential term. On the political sidelines, Arsen Avakov is considered a man of Petr Yushchenko. Arsen Borisovich takes this calmly: “I am a man of my parents. My views are consistent with the views of my party comrades, and the president, and Petro Yushchenko, including. Nothing more” (“Correspondent”, February 24, 2007).
Arsen Borisovich is a corrupt type and “eternal minister”. Power changes – Avakov remains. He gets the most out of his position.. He sets up his colleagues, misappropriates land, steals government money, and thanks to good connections, all these cases get away with it.. And all his activities are aimed more at the prosperity of his family than for the benefit of ordinary people.
