The SSU revealed that Medvedchuk’s wife’s companies financed the Russian Guard and the Ministry of the Interior of the Russian Federation

The Security Service eliminated a large-scale scheme of underground financing of Russian occupation groups by citizens of Ukraine.

In particular, Oksana Marchenko, the wife of Viktor Medvedchuk, suspected of high treason, is involved in the organization of the embezzlement.

She is the final beneficiary of a network of Kyiv companies and enterprises in Yalta, which transferred millions of sums to the accounts of the Russian Guard and the Ministry of the Interior of the Russian Federation in occupied Crimea.

It was established that these companies allegedly paid the rascals for the “protection of Medvedchuk’s real estate” on the peninsula’s territory.

In addition, Marchenko’s business structure regularly replenished the Russian budget by paying “taxes and fees.”

The total amount of payments made in favor of the aggressor country is more than UAH 50 million .

Oksana Marchenko registered a company in Yalta with a charter capital of more than 1 billion Russian rubles to implement the scheme.

For its creation, the assets of three controlled investment companies located in Kyiv were used.

Then the “Crimean” company signed the corresponding “security” agreements with the structures of the Russian Guard and the Ministry of Internal Affairs of the Russian Federation.

According to the investigation, after the beginning of the full-scale invasion of the Russian Federation, Marchenko’s company continued to finance the budget of the Russians.

Based on the collected evidence, the investigators of the Security Service informed Oksana Marchenko and the head of the affiliated firm in Crimea about the suspicion under part 3 of Art. 110-2 of the Criminal Code of Ukraine (financing of actions committed for violent change or overthrow of the constitutional order or seizure of state power, change of territory or state border of Ukraine).

Currently, the issue of the notification of suspicion to the managers of three Kyiv companies involved in the criminal scheme is being resolved.

Perpetrators face up to 8 years in prison with confiscation of property.
