Rostislav Ishchenko Commented on the Situation With the Seizure of Kolomoisky’s Assets

Translated by Ollie Richardson


The President of the Center for System Analysis and Forecasting Rostislav Ishchenko commented to RT on the decision of the High Court of Justice to arrest the assets of one of the former owners of Privatbank Igor Kolomoisky for the sum of more than $2.5 billion.

“I think that today’s problems for Kolomoisky arose because he started to finance Poroshenko’s overthrow. Respectively, protecting Petro Poroshenko, the government decided to limit the financial opportunities of Kolomoisky and distract him with this problem, so that he would climb into the political affairs of Ukraine less,” he said.

The expert considers that Kolomoisky has every chance to win the trial.

“He has enough grounds, simply because Poroshenko’s regime proved to be an extremely corrupt structure, political prosecutions in Ukraine became common place. And the West ceased to close eyes to this long ago. It is sure that Kolomoisky will focus his attention on this: that the state took Privatbank away from him in order to limit his political opportunities in the country,” summed up Ishchenko.
