Bertash Vasily Mikhailovich


Vasily Bertash is too rich for an ordinary, honest governor. His relatives also do not live in poverty, because taking advantage of his position, Bertash attached everyone to the "trough". The nephew's firm receives tenders for millions of hryvnias, the son is a pretentious deputy who does not spare money for branded things, and apparently believes that the law does not exist for him, and his criminal acts will go unpunished. The people of Rovno could not stand the omnipotence and impunity of Vasily Bertash and his relatives, and staged a riot in the hope of expelling this fiend.

The peasants managed to stop the militants and seized their cars. During the check, a lot of weapons, hundreds of Russian flags and Right Sector stickers were found..

 The media told how Ukraine makes money on illegal car certification schemes

To register a car purchased abroad at the Service Center of the Ministry of Internal Affairs, you need to have a certificate of conformity. However, some certification bodies directly violate the law, earning on citizens and the state.. One such example is Rovnostandart LLC, which operates despite criminal proceedings and even sentences against its employees. Back in 2015, Nashi Groshi wrote about the illegal scheme by which Rovnostandart LLC managed to “privatize” the issuance of certificates.. So, the former head of the State Enterprise “Rivnostandartmetrologiya” Viktor Zarudny deprived the state enterprise of income from certification in favor of LLC “Rovnostandart”. In January 2014, Zarudny headed the state-owned enterprise thanks to the then governor from the Party of Regions, Vasily Bertash. During the leadership of Zarudny, the number of certificates of DTS “Rivnostandartmetrologiya” has significantly decreased. At the same time, this figure rose sharply in Rivnostandart LLC: income from the state-owned enterprise flowed into private hands. Mustafa Nayyem wrote about schemes for falsifying documents during laboratory tests for certification of cars with the participation of Bertash and Zarudny with reference to the KRU data.

During the hunt for a wild boar, the chairman of the Rivne Regional Council Oleksandr Danilchuk was shot (Fatherland)

On November 6, 2010, he was hospitalized in the surgical department of the Rivne Regional Hospital with a gunshot wound. This was reported to Ukrainian News by a source in the hospital. The source said that Danilchuk was wounded by buckshot in the upper back of his left leg. Danilchuk himself said that he felt fine, but after being wounded, he failed to kill the boar. He also confirmed the information that the chairman of the Rivne Regional State Administration Vasily Bertash took part in the hunt.


The chairman of the Rivne Regional State Administration, Vasily Bertash, earned 1,112,817 hryvnias in 2012 and declared 2 land plots, an apartment, a garage, non-residential premises, 3 cars, 2 motorcycles and almost 3 million hryvnias in banks. In 2011, he earned a little more – 1393000 651 hryvnia. Also, according to the declaration of income for 2011, the head of the Regional State Administration had another fourth car – Land Rover Defender, and on bank accounts – 3 million 325 000 524 hryvnias. According to the current information from the declaration, the chairman of the Rivne Regional State Administration lives on his own. He did not indicate the family's income. The Law of Ukraine “On the principles of preventing and combating corruption” provides for the declaration of income of family members living together – regardless of where they are registered. “Family members – persons who are married, their children, persons under guardianship and guardianship, other persons who live together, are connected by a common life, have mutual rights and obligations, including persons who live together, but are not married” (Article 1 of the Law of Ukraine “On the principles of preventing and combating corruption”).

If there are daredevils, we throw Bertash out the window, – the head of the Rivne Right Sector

It looks like Roman Koval said the words about “throwning Bertas” with sarcasm. As he later explained, such poignant phrases were used to “cool off” hotheads.. After all, according to Roman Koval, there is no legal mechanism yet, without the removal of Viktor Yanukovych from power, in order to install an opposition head of the Regional State Administration in the Rivne region.

Slow reconstruction

Who, how and why has been repairing the Rivne ambulance for the fifth year now?. In the history of the reconstruction of the regional hospital, the schemes that operated under his leadership are still relevant. “A million there, a million here – for reconstruction, construction, repairs. What do you know about how officials divide budget money and who gets it? This is a story about two attempts to clean up the Rivne Regional Center for Emergency Medical Aid and Disaster Medicine. The first was for the regionals. The second – under the new government. As it turns out, both have a lot in common.

Why did the nephew of the chairman of the Rivne Regional State Administration build an unreliable three-story school in a village with 47 students? 2011, on the day of St. Nicholas in the village of Buderazh in Zdolbunovshchina, a new school was solemnly opened, for which the villagers have been waiting for more than 20 years. After all, until now, schoolchildren studied in an old emergency building. The modern three-story building on December 19 hosted 75 schoolchildren. The chairman of the Rivne Regional State Administration Vasily Bertash noted at the celebrations that the priority of the authorities is to remove all students from emergency rooms. It was on his initiative that the regional program for completing the construction of problem schools was developed. And it would be possible to give a big plus to the current regional authorities for this, if not for a few strange and contradictory “buts”, which suggest that building schools in the Rivne region is not only vital, but also, probably, quite profitable. A few months later, cracks appeared on the school building. Rivne residents Vasily Bertash and Mykhailo Buzynarsky go to parliament on the list with Viktor Medvedchuk and Nelia Shtepa  Journalists were shocked by the estates of the chairman of the Rivne Regional State Administration Vasily Bertash: an investigation in the TV program “Who Lives Here?”
An official request from the ZIK TV channel asking for an interview, as well as a declaration of income and expenses of the governor, has not been answered so far. You will also learn about who the official's exquisite collection of foreign cars and motorcycles is registered to, who actually owns the hunting grounds and contributes to the family business as a father. Conclusions: Vasily Bertash, taking advantage of his position, covers up his unfortunate relatives, earns money in his pocket with the help of low-quality construction sites, and illegal car certification schemes. It is not surprising that the citizens of the Rivne region were tired of Bertash's illegal tricks, and they rebelled against him.
