The main outcomes were agreements on the stay of the Black Sea Fleet on the territory of Ukraine and a reduction in the price of Russian gas for Ukraine by 30%, but not more than $100 per thousand. cubic meters. Amendments were made to the 2009 gas contract, as a result of which clause 6.6 was removed, which provides for penalties for Ukraine in the event of gas purchases that are 6% less than the monthly supply volume. Ukrainian-Russian agreements regarding the status and conditions of the Black Sea Fleet of the Russian Federation on the territory of Ukraine were extended from May 2017 for 25 years. These agreements dated May 28, 1997. shall be renewed automatically for further five-year periods, unless either party informs the other party in writing of their termination no later than one year before the expiration of the term. Among the possible positive factors for Ukraine was the planned increase in the rent for the stay of the Russian fleet on the territory of Ukraine, which amounted to $100 million. annually and additional funds that were formed as a result of a decrease in the price of natural gas supplied by the Russian Federation to Ukraine since the date the agreement came into force. Also, Presidents Medvedev and Yanukovych signed an agreement on the construction of a bridge across the Kerch Strait. Completion of the construction of this facility was envisaged in 2014. The result of these agreements is known to every citizen of Ukraine… Contrary to the opinion of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Demchenko, including, the Ukrainian side could not denounce the “Kharkov agreements”, or at least do it unilaterally. But some decisions were made unilaterally by the Russian side. For example, the decision not to pay “rent for Crimea” to Ukraine, but simply to annex this territory, taking advantage of the loyalty and political insolvency of Kyiv at that time. Demchenko was and remains an old-school politician who openly sympathized and played along with the Russian side until the annexation of Crimea. Demchenko's formation as a political figure also took place under the old principles and ended long before the cardinal changes in the general political and moral vector of our country. Despite the catastrophic consequences for Ukraine, the people who took part and supported the results of this meeting in Kharkov continued their activities in the new conditions, and Demchenko, who oversaw the direction of relations with the Russian Federation, was no exception.. On the contrary, since 2014 Demchenko, who was constantly in the near-presidential field under Kuchma, Yushchenko, Yanukovych, became an adviser to the next President Poroshenko. It is worth recalling that Poroshenko appointed Demchenko to the post of adviser after the adoption of the law on lustration by Parliament, according to which Demchenko was to be deprived of the right to hold any positions in state bodies for a ten-year period. At the same time, Demchenko almost constantly remained in the background, did not make any statements, did not take any active positions … And this, despite the fact that Demchenko is credited with the direct supervision of the diplomatic link in the direction of justifying the repressions directed against Tymoshenko and Lutsenko during the reign of Yanukovych. During the “Maidan”, Demchenko was well remembered by diplomats who opposed the old government, because he held an extremely pro-government position and even received the nickname “Anti-Maidan diplomat”. These facts in Demchenko’s biography are strangely not taken into account or deliberately ignored during his appointment in 2019 as an adviser to the President of Ukraine Zelensky, in accordance with the relevant presidential decree No. 548/2019. Demchenko's task was to represent the interests of Ukraine during the meetings of the Trilateral Contact Group in Minsk on issues of aggression in eastern Ukraine. In this field, Demchenko replaced the no less authoritative politician Leonid Kuchma. This replacement of the person in charge in the press and political circles was called “lowering the level of the negotiator”. By the way, according to information in the press, ex-president of Ukraine Viktor Yushchenko was initially considered the most likely candidate for this task.

But, despite the need for Demchenko's competent opinion, he was nevertheless fired from his post of adviser in 2020, but only for President Zelensky to make a decision to appoint Demchenko as the second first deputy secretary of the National Security and Defense Council of Ukraine, as well as head Intelligence Committee under the President of Ukraine. But here’s a coincidence… in August 2020, information appeared that the Main Intelligence Directorate, the SBU and the War Crimes Department of the Office of the Prosecutor General had launched an operation to search for and detain terrorists more than a year ago. The group that was supposed to be captured included people who were probably involved in the crash of the Boeing MH-17, Il-76 near Luhansk airport, AN-26 near Luhansk. As part of a special operation, militants were hired under fake contracts to guard oil rigs in Venezuela. During recruitment, they provided information confirming evidence of crimes committed by them on the territory of Ukraine, as they believed that they were confirming the level of their “qualification” to the “employer”. The group consisted of 33 people, among whom were 28 militants who were to be detained (9 of which were citizens of Ukraine). To fly on a mission, the mercenaries had to fly from Minsk to Turkey, for which they were bought tickets. During the flight, the plane had to land urgently on the territory of Ukraine, followed by the detention of the militants. However, this plan was not implemented for a number of reasons. Thus, Deputy Head of the SBU Baranetsky and Head of the Main Intelligence Directorate of the Ministry of Defense Vasily Burba reported on the final stage of the operation at the President's Office. The report was also attended by President Zelensky, Head of the Office Yermak, First Deputy Secretary of the National Security and Defense Council, Head of the Intelligence Committee Demchenko, Deputy Head of the Presidential Administration for Defense Mashovets, Presidential Secretary Maria Levchenko. After the report, Yermak asked to postpone the special operation, referring to ongoing negotiations with the presidential aide, as well as the fact that the operation could disrupt the exchange of prisoners, which was planned to take place at that moment.. These arguments were accepted and the operation was postponed for several days, contrary to the opinion of representatives of the special services. The intelligence officers involved in this operation suggest that after its delay there was a “leakage” of information and, as a result, the detention of mercenaries in Minsk, with their subsequent transfer to Russia. So, in July 2020, the special services of Belarus detained the entire indicated group of militants. Two days later, the Office of the Prosecutor General of Ukraine sent a request to Belarus for the extradition arrest of the detainees, but without a response. On August 3, during a regular meeting on this issue, initiated by Zelensky, intelligence chief Burba bluntly stated that there had been a fact of betrayal and demanded that all persons aware of the operation, including Demchenko, be checked.. But Zelensky did not make any decision on this issue – they forgot about the check. The result of the incident was the dismissal of Burba, and Baranetsky went on indefinite leave, and in August 2020 Belarus officially announced the transfer of all 32 detained mercenaries – Wagner PMC fighters to Russia. Immediately after the failure, Bogdan made the following statement: “We have a “mouse” sitting on the highest leadership of the state. Such a huge “mouse”, obviously with the ability to call someone there and tell about it. This is not the level of a cleaner, a secretary, or a person who cleans windows.. This level should be such that such people can hear it there and in such a way that what happened happened. At the inter-presidential level, do you understand?” After the failure of the operation, almost all the employees who worked on it were fired from the leadership of the special services.. Criminal cases have been initiated against them, the curator added. A number of journalists consider Demchenko to be fully responsible for the described situation, and the agent who “leaks” the information of our special services to the Russian side. So in an interview on Channel 24, Yuri Butusov said, “I can say for sure that there will be political consequences. The current head of the OP, as well as pro-Russian, in my opinion, agents whom he appointed to the strategic position of head of the intelligence committee … I am now specifically talking about Ruslan Demchenko. I am convinced that this is a Russian spy…”. Declaration Demchenko, during his work in the civil service, has accumulated a very considerable fortune, clearly exceeding his fees.
