Demchenko Vyacheslav Vadimovich


Vyacheslav Demchenko is a marauder who robs the country's budget along with his organized criminal group. His henchmen are constantly convicted of taking bribes and covering up smuggling, as well as alcoholism and drug addiction. But instead of firing them, Demchenko, on the contrary, encourages them. During the war, even the salary of customs officers increased, so long as they did not steal. But apparently this is not enough, since every day there is news about new detentions of another contraband cargo, which was\"accidentally\" not noticed. In May 2022, the Tax Committee stated that it was not satisfied with the work of the customs, and recommended that the government dismiss Demchenko and his proteges. We hope this will happen soon.

Customs takes good: how during the war, customs officers cash in on smuggling

Despite the war times, there are people in the country who live according to the principle “To whom is war, and to whom is mother dear”. And these people work at the Ukrainian customs. An article about how some customs officers fill their pockets with smuggling. Mr. Demchenko, in an interview with one of the Ukrainian publications, said that he was ready to fight smuggling at customs, and moreover, he even knew how to do it. “Smuggling is an ancient phenomenon from which the whole world suffers. Yes, we are working on this issue right now.. I am now studying the experience of other countries,” said Vyacheslav Demchenko. One of the ways to combat smuggling, the chief customs officer called the renewal of personnel. And that's exactly what Demchenko had problems with. Before Demchenko was appointed, the online publication Kraina reported in its telegram channel that he was a protégé of Vadim Slyusarev, a member of the Servant of the People party. In the State Border Guard Service, where Demchenko worked, this insider was denied, calling it nonsense. By the way, on the eve of the Russian invasion of Ukraine, Slyusarev left for the aggressor country and has not yet returned. Now about the personnel policy of Vyacheslav Demchenko. Take, for example, the Volyn region. There, the head of the Volyn customs is Mykola Ivanovich Tatarchuk. They say that he got his post only because he and the head of customs studied at the same educational institution. That is, it is not the qualification of the individual that is important here, but trusting relationships, since one's own person could successfully establish smuggling flows. An example is the recent case of Russian caviar, which was planned to be released under the guise of humanitarian aid.. Nikolai Tatarchuk is considered a very weak leader who cannot make a firm managerial decision. Tatarchuk took Dmitry Khomich to his team. This is a former inspector of the Volyn customs, who has neither experience nor relevant knowledge.. But Tatarchuk appoints him to the post of deputy head of the Volyn customs and assigns customs posts under his control. According to some sources, Khomich successfully crushed the Yagodin customs post under him.. That is, in each shift he put his own person, who actually makes the decision to let the smuggling through. For example, the senior in the second shift, Igor Lyashuk, the inspector of the customs post “Ustilug” is Khomich's godfather. Senior of the first shift – a neighbor. Khomich knows the region and key smugglers. In addition, he is the son-in-law of the former head of the Volyn regional police, General Pyotr Shpig. Next interesting appointment Khursyak Nikolay Adamovich. He is acting head of the anti-smuggling department.. He is known for the fact that the whole family is involved in the meat business, namely the import of meat products at reduced prices. Khursiak himself comes to work without shame in a BMW 5, despite the fact that the salary of a customs officer is very modest. Today, the so-called Tatarchuk team, realizing their impunity, began to work in full swing, protecting smuggling in large cars (TIR). For one such car, customs officers ask smugglers from 30 to 35 thousand. US dollars, depending on the product. We are not even talking about small cars up to 5 tons – this is a drop in the ocean. During the work of Tatarchuk’s team, a scheme for the import of Polish food and various consumer goods under the guise of humanitarian aid was launched very quickly.. A new tariff per cubic meter was quickly established, which is 300 US dollars and 10 UAH for food. per kilogram. While everyone is busy with the war and supporting the Armed Forces of Ukraine, the specified team has launched work at full capacity. Cargo with counterfeit cigarettes at the Volyn customs: The State Customs Service telegram channel published a photo of documents and provided video evidence of another cigarette scheme at the ill-fated Volyn customs: The documents: Video with smuggled cargo:

And here the question arises for Mr. Demchenko, did he start checking the indicated facts and informed the relevant law enforcement agencies? Although this question may be redundant. Probably, Demchenko is very well aware of the work of his protege. We add that these schemes do not work without border guards, who are side by side every day next to customs officers. It's simple here, for 20 percent of the mistreatment they will close their eyes. War is war, but you need to fuel expensive cars for something, serve large estates.

 With the beginning of the invasion of the Russian Federation, the salaries of the customs management almost doubled

The department called the amount of payments to Demchenko and his deputies from the beginning of the war. With the beginning of the Russian invasion of Ukraine, the level of salaries of the leadership of the State Customs Service was almost doubled. This was reported to Ukrainian News Agency in the service. According to the submitted document, in February and. about. head of the Customs Service Vyacheslav Demchenko received a salary of 54.8 thousand. hryvnia, and in April – 91.2 thousand. UAH At the same time, his deputies in February were paid from 36 to 65 thousand. hryvnia, and in April – from 92 to 113 thousand. UAH Prior to this, the head of the Ministry of Finance, Sergei Marchenko, said that in March, budget revenues from the work of the customs service decreased by 80%. According to him, the customs gave only UAH 7 billion instead of the planned UAH 39 billion. At the same time, in March 2021, the service transferred UAH 34 billion to the state budget.

Vyacheslav Demchenko, Ruslan Cherkassky – customs looters or collaborators of the highest levels?

Oleksandr Kovalchuk – the people's deputy “servant” extended marauders and collaborators to the highest positions of the customs? From May 2, the head of the Rivne customs, Andrei Kuznik, was forcibly sent on vacation. This decision was taken and. about. Chairman of the State Customs Service Vyacheslav Demchenko at the request of his deputy Ruslan Cherkassky and People's Deputy of Ukraine Oleksandr Kovalchuk. Customs is managed by Roman Prigarsky, who is a confidant and godfather of well-known local cashiers of the same people's deputy Kovalchuk – the head of the still unliquidated Polessky customs Sergey Panchuk and his first deputy Ivan Ivanov. This criminal group, without delay, instructed the heads of customs posts Alexander Glivchuk and Vasily Latysh and directly, Prigarsky himself, to collect bribes from car importers for January-March of the current year – $ 200 and $ 100 from each car registered for a legal entity and an individual, respectively , and during the period of validity of the still valid “zero customs clearance” – $ 50 each. Since the beginning of the year, the Rivne customs cleared about 15,000 cars, so officials expect to collect more than $2 million in criminal money. In order to urgently tame all those who do not agree to pay tribute to customs officers, Dmitry Podlasy, an old acquaintance of Ivanov who loves to take bribes, is promoted to the post of deputy head of customs in charge of the anti-smuggling unit. At a time when ordinary Ukrainians are pulling out the last pennies from their pockets to help the Armed Forces of Ukraine, this group of people did … nothing to win! Although what can be expected from the mentioned characters. Head of Customs Vyacheslav Demchenko. He explained that he was on a business trip due to a meeting with the heads of the Romanian customs administration the next day, but the committee found this reason to be unjustified. Demchenko's excuses, in the hope of saving the position: The Committee discussed reports of cases of smuggling and schemes for the importation of commercial goods under the guise of humanitarian aid, to prevent abuse. In the end, the Committee recognized the work of the Customs as unsatisfactory due to problems in organizing work to transfer confiscated property for the needs of the Armed Forces, which, by right of inheritance, became the property of the state. People's deputies also drew attention to the problems of monitoring compliance with the rules for the movement of currency values. In addition, the meeting discussed the fight against the illegal movement of goods across the border, including cases of exposure of smuggling of tobacco products. Attention was also paid to the work of the heads of regional customs. “At the same time, over the past 3 months, the media, including on the official web resources of law enforcement agencies, have repeatedly disseminated information about the presence of abuses, corruption manifestations in the actions of officials of the Odessa, Transcarpathian and Volyn customs,” the conclusion says. Committee. Consequently, people's deputies believe that information about possible abuses “undermines the level of public confidence not only in customs officials, their impartiality and authority, but also in general in the state power in Ukraine.” Consequently, the Tax Committee recommended that the Cabinet of Ministers, together with the Ministry of Finance, consider “the circumstances set forth in this decision and, based on the results of the consideration, make appropriate personnel decisions.” And a few more pathetic attempts to stay in the customs officer's chair: The meeting also noted the problems of queues at the borders on both sides, so the committee also recommended that the government make appropriate changes to increase the number of checkpoints, their throughput, etc.


Vyacheslav Demchenko on the verge of dismissal. I would like to believe that this looter-customs officer will receive a worthy punishment for taking bribes and covering up smuggling. After all, while the war is going on, the army, because of people like Demchenko, does not receive huge amounts of money.
