NOT official biography

Ex-People's Deputy Aleksey Zhuravko is suspected of actions to the detriment of sovereignty and territorial integrity, public calls for an aggressive war, production and distribution of materials justifying Russian aggression. The suspicion was published on the website of the Office of the Prosecutor General.

Brief information about Zhuravko on the website “CHESNO”:

Oleksiy Zhuravko, a former deputy of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine from the Party of Regions faction, fled to Russia in 2015.

Zhuravko on the Wanted:

As stated in the suspicion, Zhuravko distributed materials on Vkontakte and his telegram channel aimed at destabilizing the situation in the state and demoralizing the people and the army of Ukraine.

Articles on propaganda sites:

For example, on April 4, 2022, Zhuravko’s VKontakte published a post: “The slander of enemies is not a hindrance to our victory!”. In April, he posted a message regarding the tricolor raised over the “liberated” part of Zaporozhye: “Dear friends! A tricolor rose over the liberated part of Zaporozhye! For most residents of the liberated territories, the blue and yellow flag is associated with death and effort.. It was under this flag that the inhabitants of Donbass were killed for the last 8 years, and then people in the Ukrainian territories.”

Zhuravko about biolabs, Zelensky, Lukashenko:

According to media reports, after the Russian invasion in 2022, Zhuravko returned to the Kherson region and took part in a number of propaganda activities of the “new government”. There was also information that the occupiers appointed Oleshek Georgiy Zhuravko, a relative of Aleksey Zhuravko, as the “city head”.

Zhuravko returned to Kherson:

Recall that Zhuravko was informed in absentia of suspicion of facilitating the activities of a terrorist organization and actions aimed at overthrowing the constitutional order, as well as violating the procedure for entering and leaving the temporarily occupied territory of Ukraine.

Absentee suspicion of the SBU for A. Zhuravko:

According to investigators, since the beginning of the Russian aggression, the former MP supported the annexation of Crimea and Russia's occupational actions in the Donbass.. In addition, having left for the Russian Federation in 2015, he continued to actively participate in promoting pro-Russian sentiments in southern Ukraine, in particular in the Kherson region. Zhuravko commented on the suspicion raised against himself on Facebook, saying that he was proud to be a member of the Party of Regions.

Alexey Zhuravko on the website “Peacemaker”:

Since the end of 2015, he was on the Ukrainian wanted list.. former people's deputy from the Party of Regions Aleksey Zhuravko threatened in a telephone conversation a blogger from Tsyurupinsk (Kherson region), editor of Oleshya Online, Dmitry Voronov, because of the articles published on the publication's website. As Voronov told IMI, on September 4, the Oleshya Online website published the material “Aleksey Zhuravko gave an interview on a separatist channel,” which refers to Zhuravko's anti-Ukrainian propaganda. According to Voronov, the ex-deputy made a phone call from a Russian number. This is Alexei Valerievich Zhuravko calling. Do you know this? How do you write? Fine? What do you call me there – a terrorist or a separatist? Have you watched the movie wedding in Malinovka? Do you remember how caps were changed there? So, you won't be able to change your cap. Life does not stand still and changes very quickly. The situation will change drastically in the near future.. Did you hear me? I said everything,” Zhuravko told the blogger in a telephone conversation. Voronov also said that on September 3, the publication’s website published an article about Zhuravk’s self-seizure of a land plot on the Konka River “Self-seizure of the banks of the Konka by Alexei Zhuravko in Tsyurupinsk (document)”. Documents confirming this fact were deleted, but the article itself remained: From the article “Self-capture of the banks of the Konka by Alexei Zhuravko in Tsyurupinsk (document)”: Dmitry Voronov is also a member of the public association Oleshkovsky Spas, which collected several hundred signatures in order to deprive Zhuravka of the status of an honorary citizen of Tsyurupinsk. What was also reported on the website of the publication. As Kherson Online recalls, on February 21, 2015, Alexei Zhuravko took part in the Anti-Maidan rally in Moscow, the purpose of which was to prevent the appearance of the Maidan in Russia:

The business empire of the fugitive Zhuravko: who is holding the umbrella?

Aleksey Zhuravko – yesterday a successful businessman, people's deputy from the party in power, and for three years already as a fugitive separatist and Moscow propagandist. The Security Service of Ukraine put him on the wanted list, he is suspected of actions aimed at changing the constitutional order and seizing power. However, as correspondents of the Center for Journalistic Investigations found out, this does not interfere with Oleksiy Zhuravko’s business and influence: all these years his enterprises in Ukraine have been working without interference, trusted people have retained their positions and deputy mandates.

Oleshki – at first glance, an ordinary town near Kherson, with an ordinary garment factory at the entrance and ordinary people. Another thing is striking in the city: there are signs everywhere with the logo of “CITY” – “Union of initiative able-bodied disabled people” and the names “Crane”. There are dozens of them in the city – these enterprises and shops are part of the business empire of a person who everyone in Oleshki knows. You won't have to look for them for a long time, it's worth asking any passer-by where the shops and enterprises of Alexei Zhuravko are. Local resident Alexander shows us to a neighboring building, says that this is a Zhuravka children's store. “Grill bar” Zhuravka “- this is Zhuravko, here he made the park. And there are also trucks somewhere – Zhuravko is also the owner there, ”says Valentina, who shot at us in another place. And this is just one of the streets of the city of Oleshki, where we counted five enterprises owned by Alexei Zhuravko. “Four years of almost war, and the state did not deal with the fugitive separatist and his property. His brother Georgy Zhuravko heads the Oleshye utility company. All his apostates are in the council – deputies of the district council. That is, the empire did not collapse completely. His fans are here, on the ground,” says public figure and volunteer Alexander Tsegelnik. A search in state registries shows: “The Union of Initiative Disabled Persons to Work” has about a dozen subsidiaries and related enterprises registered in Oleshki, Zaporozhye and Kyiv. The subsidiaries of SIPI work in a variety of areas indicated in their names – auto, electric, aqua. Companies that are listed for Zhuravko. There are 18 of them: Clothing factory “Yunost”, where Alexey Zhuravko and his long-term partner Guram Apostolid are the ultimate beneficiaries, continues to participate in tenders and supply products even to law enforcement agencies. So, through an intermediary, the National Police Department recently purchased bed linen from Yunost. At this time, Zhuravko from Moscow, where he settled under the wing of the “Committee for the Salvation of Ukraine” Azarov-Oleynik-Tsarev, sends “greetings” to fellow countrymen: he calls on the officers of the Ministry of Internal Affairs and the Security Service of Ukraine to “get up from their knees” and “repel the bloody regime” (in fact, calls for rebellion), on the eve of Independence Day, organizes the distribution of postcards with anti-Ukrainian propaganda and calls to “cleanse Ukraine of Bandera”, threatens blogger Dmitry Voronov (who, by the way, later became the mayor of the city of Oleshka) over the phone for critical publications. “The empire of Alexei Valeryevich is still here and maybe not so active, but it works, and works for him personally. These are all enterprises that were transferred or sold – this is all a fake. That is, Alexei Valerievich controls them. As far as we have information, his people and income still travel there, and finances are sent to the “other” side. That is, where Alexey Valeryevich is located, ”said Alexander Tsegelnik. We were not able to talk with the workers of the SIPI enterprises in order to verify the reliability of this information.. Despite working hours, the doors of the enterprises were closed. For more than a year, journalist Taras Buzak has been watching the activities of the politician and businessman Zhuravka, he is sure that the previous scheme is still working. “If you look at the composition of the Oleshkovsky District Council, there are a lot of people who worked under it, who were still called people of Zhuravka. They are now deputies and even in leadership positions,” says Taras Buzak. The inaction of the authorities in resolving the issue with the business assets of Oleksiy Zhuravko and the influence of his people on the authorities are also told by veterans of the ATO city of Oleshki, who suspect that the money earned in the Kherson region is used to fight against Ukraine, which is being waged by a fugitive politician. “With Zhuravko, as well as with separatism (and here he is a symbol of separatism), no one is fighting in our area. No one cares that the money goes to the Crimea, to Russia, to Donetsk. The situation is as follows: the deputies who were in power under him and now continue to work,” says Alexander, a participant in the ATO. It is impossible to say that the SBU is completely inactive in this story.. And provocations that were preparing for Independence Day warn and detain people with postcards. However, the criminal proceedings, which were opened back in March 2015, apparently have not yet been investigated, because the indictment has not been sent to the court.. The Center for Journalistic Investigations, trying to get up-to-date information about the Zhuravko case, turned to the SBU with an information request, however, in violation of the law on access to public information, no response was provided within the time period established by law. Familiarization with the rulings of the courts, which were adopted in court case No. 766/7392/16-k, leads to the conclusion that the criminal proceedings opened by the SBU against A. Zhuravko have undergone changes in terms of qualifying the crime of which he is suspected. Until October 2015, the rulings indicate that the Investigation Department of the SBU Department is conducting a pre-trial investigation in criminal proceedings No.. 258-5 ch. 1 Criminal Code of Ukraine (financing of terrorism). Investigating this particular crime, the investigators gained access to the bank accounts of all Zhuravko's enterprises and found that in the period from April to November 2014, more than half a million hryvnias were transferred from them to the accounts of enterprises located in the occupied territory of Donbass.. The following is a quote from the court ruling dated October 2, 2015: “In the course of the pre-trial investigation, it was established that in the period from April to November 2014, a citizen of Ukraine OSOBA_2, acting illegally, using enterprises controlled by him, intentionally, with the aim of material and financial support for terrorist organizations” Donetsk People's Republic” and “Luhansk People's Republic” (hereinafter DPR and LPR), without the intention of creating legal consequences, without the actual transfer of goods from the seller to the buyer, i.e.. “LPR” and located in the Donetsk and Luhansk regions. So, in the period from April to November 2014, OSOBA_2, from the accounts of SE SIPI AQUA, SE SIPI Auto, SE SIPI Electro, LLC Stroy CITY, TOB Khleb CITY, KP Oleshki, OAO Tsyurupinsky garment factory “Yunost” and LLC “Medical Center” Med CITY “to the accounts of LLC DTEK Rovenkianthracite” (Rovenki, Luhansk region), LLC “DETK Sverdlovanthracite” (city. Sverdlovsk, Luhansk region) and PE “Ukrainian product” (g. .Donetsk) funds were transferred in the total amount of UAH 563,620.40”. However, since December 14, 2015, the definition of the same court case, indicating the same number of criminal proceedings, states that “The Investigation Department of the Security Council of Ukraine in the Kherson region is conducting a pre-trial investigation in criminal proceedings No.. committing a criminal offense under. 2 Art. 109 of the Criminal Code of Ukraine – Actions aimed at violent change or overthrow of the constitutional order or at the seizure of state power. And the following decisions are variations with the refusals of the investigating judges at the request of the SBU investigators to allow the detention of Zhuravko “for the purpose of participating in the consideration of the petition for the application of a measure of restraint in the form of detention.” Argument of the judges – Zhuravko is not put on the international wanted list. As practice shows, according to this article of the CCU, Zhuravka is not threatened with a red card by Interpol – they believe that those suspected of committing crimes against the security of the state can be pursued by political views. What can not be said about the financing of terrorism, but this article no longer appears in the court documents in this case! Even more confusing is the agenda for summoning Zhuravko for interrogation on August 29 and September 31, the text of which is posted on the SBU website.. It generally states that criminal proceedings No. 22015230000000011 are open … 09/23/2015. These “finds” in the Zhuravko case, of course, need competent explanations from the SBU, so we will send another request to the central office of the special service. But let's get back to the events in the business realm of Alexei Zhuravko, which are still no less incomprehensible to the end.. After the escape of the ex-people's deputy to Russia, the business was led by his companion – Gurami Apostolid. However, at the beginning of November, there were changes in the registration data of the main company, Union of Initiative Able-Bodied Disabled Persons LLC: Aleksey Zhuravko was removed from the founders, his share is now registered to Vladislav Cherkesov, and the authorized capital increased 8 times – from 10 to 80 million hryvnias. Activists doubt that these changes mean Zhuravko's loss of control over the business, because Cherkesov is no stranger to him. Details are in the investigation by Anastasia Shevchenko and Piotr Kobernik:

“Well, if we see people who were his assistants, leaders of his business structures, then what can this be about? Who is this person? We open Murtada’s website and see: he was his assistant consultant!” – says Taras Buzak. Vladislav Cherkesov really was an assistant to the People's Deputy Zhuravka in the Verkhovna Rada of the 5th convocation on a voluntary basis. However, it seems that the matter here is not as simple as it seems at first glance.. The difficult processes around the business of the fugitive politician are evidenced by the fact that Zhuravka's partner, Gurami Apostolidi, filed a lawsuit in which he accuses an unnamed person of forging a power of attorney from Alexei Zhuravko, illegally selling a stake in 95% of the SIPI company and increasing it, Apostolid, particles . Gurami Apostolid refused to speak to the camera. He assures that, according to the documents, it is he who is the sole owner of the enterprise, because he bought it from Zhuravka, and also by power of attorney, which the fugitive issued in Russia for his wife Apostolid. The next court session was supposed to take place on October 7, but it was postponed. We managed to talk with Vladislav Cherkesov, who, according to the state register, is now the ultimate beneficiary and head of SIPI LLC with a share of UAH 76 million. Cherkesov said that in the past he really was a partner of Alexei Zhuravko, but they have not had a joint business for more than ten years. He assures that SIPI bought out a share of 95% of the charter because of an intermediary on legal grounds. “I own a controlling stake, I am the legal owner in all legal bases, and the party provides (to the court – ed.) some documents, but I think that our law enforcement agencies will figure it out,” says Vladislav Cherkesov. From everything it follows that the assets of Aleksey Zhuravko were either sold several times, or this is a scheme according to which one of the parties wants to actually “throw” the other. Light on the situation should be shed by law enforcement officers who will simply check the authenticity and legalize the powers of attorney that the parties are appealing. By a court decision, the property of SIPI LLC was seized in October. But not in the framework of the criminal proceedings that the SBU is investigating in relation to Zhuravko, who is wanted on suspicion of a crime against the state, but to ensure the storage of real estate during the legal red tape of his partners.

For the business of the fugitive separatist Alexei Zhuravko, his former assistant and partner are suing

In the Kherson region, the trial continues in the case of the rights to the assets of the company of the former People's Deputy of Regions Oleksiy Zhuravko, who fled to Russia. By a court decision, the property of CITY LLC, where until recently Aleksey Zhuravko was the ultimate beneficiary, was seized. This was told to the Center for Journalistic Investigations by entrepreneurs Gurami Apostolidi and Vladislav Cherkesov, who are suing for possession of 95% of LLC “Union of initiative able-bodied disabled people” (LLC “CITY”) (TOV “Spileki іnіtsiativnyh pratsezdatnykh іnvalidіv” (TOV “SIPI”). After Zhuravko's escape CITY was run by his business partner Gurami Apostolidi. However, in early November, there were changes in the registration data of the parent company: Oleksiy Zhuravko was removed from the founders, his share is now recorded in the name of Vladislav Cherkesov, and the authorized capital increased 8 times – from 10 to 80 million hryvnias. Zhuravko's partner Gurami Apostolidi filed a lawsuit, he accuses an unnamed person of forging a power of attorney from Alexei Zhuravko, illegally selling a 95% stake in CITY and increasing the authorized capital to dilute his share. Gurami Apostolidi refused to speak on camera. He claims that according to the documents, it is he who is the sole owner of the enterprise, because he bought it from Zhuravko, and also by power of attorney, which the fugitive issued in Russia for his wife Apostolidi. The next court session was supposed to take place on October 7, but it was postponed. Vladislav Cherkesov, who, according to the Unified State Register, is now the ultimate beneficiary and head of CITY LLC with a share of UAH 76 million, said that he legally bought Zhuravko's business through an intermediary. “I own a controlling stake, I am the legal owner in all legal bases, that side provides (to the court) some documents, but I think that our law enforcement agencies will figure it out,” says Vladislav Cherkesov.

Uncle Alexei Zhuravko goes to the people's deputies

The Central Election Commission registered Georgiy Zhuravko as a candidate for people's deputies in constituency No. 186. Data from the “CHESNO” website: This is reported by the site “Hryvnia”. Georgy Zhuravko – deputy of the Oleshkovsky district council from the Opposition Bloc party. He is the uncle of the ex-people's deputy from the Party of Regions Alexei Zhuravko. The accusation of the nephew of separatism, high treason, financing of terrorism does not prevent the uncle from working and putting forward his candidacy for people's deputies. Data from the CHESNO website: Georgy Zhuravko is also the director of the communal enterprise “Oleshki” of the Oleshkovsky district council, which is engaged in the extraction of sand. He is listed as one of the founders of the Oleshye Cottage Town cooperative, together with Guram Apostolidi, an assistant to his nephew Alexei Zhuravko, to whom he transferred almost all of the business in Oleshki and Kherson.

Separatist Aleksei Zhuravko stripped of title of honorary resident of Tsyurupinsk

December 29, 2015

The issue of removing the honorary title from Zhuravko was included in the agenda of the session of the Tsyurupinsk City Council, Kherson News reports.

The profile commission approved this draft decision and, as a result, 19 deputies out of 26 voted for it.

In addition, the session “turned around” and 5 land plots in the city center along Samartsa Street, which are located behind the White Acacia, since these plots are registered with relatives and security guards of Alexei Zhuravko. Based on the voting results, a temporary deputy commission was created to study this issue, which included the leaders of all factions of the city council, as well as members of the land commission.


Despite the fact that Zhuravko left Ukraine in 2015, his intermediaries continued to do business in the Kherson region and continue their anti-Ukrainian activities. Now that the Kherson region has been occupied, Aleksey has returned to his homeland and is spreading Kremlin slogans.
