"Valentyn Nalyvaichenko, who headed the spy agency from 2006 to 2010, told the Kyiv Post in an interview that documents connecting Mogilevich with the nation’s gas trade had been destroyed by one of his predecessors, Oleksandr Turchynov, in 2005.

Turchynov, who was security service (SBU) chief in 2005, called such claims an “elaborate ruse” to discredit his close ally, former Prime Minister Yulia Tymoshenko, who made a fortune in the gas trade in the 1990s."

No wonder the child alcoholism and prostitution skyrocket during the orange reign - all this activities are a symbol of a mafia state.

No wonder Fritash had close dealing with two mafia bosses - scarface CIA disciple Yushchenko and Mogilevich, while in the same time the hohol diaspora got cout redhanded doing sex trafficking in the US.

Uh-huh,.. so how do you explain the fact that Firtash is considered an ally of Yanuconvict and the Party of Robbers.. or that The Blue Bandits are orchestrating the expropriation of ordinary Ukrainians taxes to pay of RosUkrenergo.. or that the so called cia disciple Yuschenko twice went onto coalition with Yanuconvict?..

And please provide ANY backing for your claims of diaspora involvement in sex trafficking.. If there is any, It's gauranteed to be in the hands of the post soviet US via Israel diaspora... in other words, morally bankrupt sovok opportunists
