You're reading: Tigipko: Money paid was gifts, not shadow salaries

Responding to Kyiv Post interview questions, Tigipko was scant on detail, but suggested that the alleged payments at hand were gifts, not shadow, untaxed salaries.

Oleksandra Kuzhel, a veteran politician and government official, made the accusations against her former boss in a newspaper interview on May 15.

“Take for example Mr. Tigipko. I can say that he paid salaries to all of us exclusively in envelopes.
