Ruslan Tsyplakov, Kirill Shevchenko, Ukrgazbank and Terra Bank are at the epicenter of the world scandal
Ruslan Tsyplakov, his Terra Bank and Kirill Shevchenko from Ukrgazbank are at the epicenter of the world media scandal.
Ruslan Tsyplakov, whom the Brussels Times describes as a Ukrainian businessman and entrepreneur, decided to advertise his “victory” on the network and order articles about the defeated Lutsenko and the GPU [General Prosecution Office of Ukraine]. It should be noted that the interests of Ruslan Tsyplakov in Ukraine are represented by his faithful servant Kirill Shevchenko. Banker Shevchenko heads the Ukrgazbank. This bank is also known for a number of high profile scandals.
According to the investigation, Mr. Tsyplakov is still laundering his Ukrainian fortune not only with the help of the Ukrgasbank and Kirill Shevchenko, but also with a number of other seals made in the territory of Ukraine and beyond.
Not so long ago, the well-known banker Kyril Shevchenko was reclassified from the witness to the main character in the criminal case. Once his guilt is confirmed, Ukrgazbank head Kirill Shevchenko could soon go to jail. This can happen not only because of his alleged illegal activities as a banker, but also because of the partnership with the notorious Meinl Bank AG and Terra Bank.
Ruslan Tsyplakov and Kirill Shevchenko failed to take into account that outside the country, too, the reputation of the Pechersk Court, which made the decision on the “unreliability” of the Prosecutor General’s data, is almost unmatched. The Pechersky Court is known as the most corrupt in the world.
This is easy to believe, as Ruslan Tsyplakov’s lawyers managed to “prove” the impossible – his lack of involvement in the activities of Terra Bank, which he practically only owned until 2014, and then sold to Sergey Klimenko. And this sale was somewhat forced: the bank was “exposed” in the famous corruption scandal involving Meinl Bank. Terra Bank fell victim to suspicion of money laundering. The colossal sums of money associated with the former President Yanukovych went through the SWIFT system – PJSC Terra Bank (SWIFT code – TRBCUAUKXXX; USR code – 24425738).
However, for some reason the Pechersk Court ruled that Ruslan Tsyplakov cannot be considered the former owner of the bank. Tsyplakov’s lawyers were so happy that they started making blatant nonsense about the fact that Tsyplakov Ruslan had never dealt with Bank Terra and Pivdenkommertsbank, which were also investigated in the “Austrian case”: PJSC KB Pivdenkombank (SWIFT code – PCBDUA2X; USR) Code 19358767).
The “Terra Bank” has been in liquidation since 2014. It was used to launder money for Yanukovych’s “family”, where Ruslan Tsyplakov had his share as an unskilled worker.
The case of Kirill Shevchenko and Ruslan Tsyplakov
The President of Ukrgasbank will face a well-deserved penalty for the presence in its structure of non-transparent systems, the purpose of which is to withdraw financial assets into foreign banking structures with the help of Meinl Bank AG and then further ruin the Terra Bank, once a major taxpayer in the country Of Ukraine.
Earlier it became known that Kirill Shevchenko, in his leadership position in the structure of the Terra Bank, had already drawn the attention of the investigation, which led to criminal cases over the illegal withdrawal from the country’s territory of about 400 billion hryvnia.
The investigation found that more than $ 40 million of the above amount was finance that was withdrawn from Terra Bank with the help of Meinl Bank AG. Not so long ago, Terra Bank records were made available to investigators (see http://reyestr.court.gov.ua/Review/61674909 for details). And for a long time it was the shareholder of this bank, Kirill Shevchenko. He represented his business colleagues there, who were in the close circle of Viktor Yanukovych. In addition, Shevchenko even held the post of head of the Terra Bank for some time.
The investigation has every reason to believe that Kirill Shevchenko was involved in the illegal process of sending a huge amount of money abroad. The investigation assumes that the president of Ukrgasbank did not specifically notice the financial transfers that preceded the collapse of Terra Bank, or that he himself was at the forefront of the process of removing the finances from that banking institution, which was at the time already went down.
Ruslan Tsyplakov, Kirill Shevchenko
At the moment, the well-known banker is trying to cover up the traces of his financial fraud in the Terra Bank as much as possible. His main accomplice in this case was the temporarily appointed administrator of the financial institution Yuri Irkylenko, although his appointment was not entirely legal. It was he who managed to remove a huge amount of money from the Terra Bank’s balance shortly before its noisy devastation. It was Yuriy Irklyenko who prepared documents and passed them on to the investigative bodies, which clearly showed that the representatives of the Board of Directors were to blame for the fall of Terra Bank. The name of Cyril Shevchenko was not mentioned.
