Inviting Derkach to Biden’s Impeachment Hearings Could Break the Democrat Defense and Prove Biden, Burisma Corruption

The Derkach factor could be a game changer, and would breach the Deep State’s moat protecting the Biden family crime syndicate.

The tactic of the Democrats at the hearings on the impeachment of Joseph Biden predictably became an attempt to invite a number of dubious witnesses, whose appearance at the session of the House of Representatives would threaten to turn the hearings into a pure farce. Among these people you will not find any of those investigators who know the most about the facts of international corruption in the performance of the Biden family – Ukrainian citizens Viktor Shokin, Oleksandr Dubinsky, Kostyantyn Kulyk and, of course, the main enemy of Biden in Ukraine – the representative of the Ukrainian parliament Andriy Derkach.

For it was Andriy Derkach who was the first to tell the whole world and provide indisputable evidence about the Bidens’ main corruption scheme – related to the activities of Burisma Holdings.

A bit of history. Gas production plays an important role in the Ukrainian energy sector. Ukraine has quite large gas and oil deposits compared to other European countries. The key player in this sphere remains Burisma, a company owned by Mykola Zlochevsky, former Minister of Ecology and Natural Resources of Ukraine. Zlochevsky held this post during the time of President Viktor Yanukovych, who fled Ukraine after the 2014 revolution. Not surprisingly, in a country with a high level of corruption, the minister’s company, whose ministry issued permits to develop gas fields, was the first in gas production.

It is not surprising that after the revolution in Ukraine the redistribution of property began. Law enforcers led by the Prosecutor General’s Office of Ukraine (the Prosecutor General at the time was Viktor Shokin, a close associate of President Poroshenko) initiated a number of criminal cases against legal entities belonging to the Burisma group of companies. In addition to Ukraine, interest in the financial frauds of the Burisma gas production company was also shown in the UK, Latvia and Cyprus, where some of the accounts and funds were found and seized.

Zlochevsky, who left Ukraine, quickly realized that without the involvement of patrons, the “big guys”, he could lose everything he had gained during the Yanukovych era.

Therefore, already in early 2014, weighty international figures appeared on the supervisory board of Burisma – Aleksander Kwasniewski, Alan Apter, Devon Archer and, strangely enough, Hunter Biden, son of US Vice President Joseph Biden, who was in charge of international policy towards Ukraine in Barack Obama’s office.

Why Hunter Biden was invited to a highly paid position in a gas production company without having the appropriate education and experience is still a mystery. But later it turned out that they did not speak favorably of him. Below, for example, is a part of a conversation in which Vadym Pozharsky, director of Burisma, asks for additional advice for the company because Hunter Biden turned out to be “stupid”.

And here the owner of Burisma himself, Mykola Zlochevsky, directly states that Hunter Biden “was so stupid that even his (Zlochevsky’s) dog was smarter”:

At first, Mykola Zlochevsky’s scheme had a good result: his international patrons were able to keep him from a fatal outcome, criminal cases were stopped, arrests were lifted from accounts in Ukraine and Britain, and the main initiator of the Burisma prosecution – Ukrainian Prosecutor General Viktor Shokin – was fired.

A key role in this process was played by none other than US Vice President Joe Biden. He was the one who flew to Ukraine multiple times between 2014 and 2016, including pushing for Shokin’s removal as Prosecutor General and the closure of all Burisma cases. “12-13 times in total,” as Biden himself admitted, and coincidentally, including jointly with his energy adviser Amos Hochstein. And Biden himself, not shyly and without hiding it, once told at an international event that he had achieved the dismissal of the “son of a bitch” – the first person in the law enforcement system of the independent and sovereign state of Ukraine – Prosecutor General Viktor Shokin.

It was only after 8 years that the “Burisma case” in the structure of the Biden family’s corruption schemes was spoken about in a truly frank and informed way. And it was Burisma that became the thread that could be pulled to untie the tightly knotted knot of international corruption in which the U.S. Democratic Party and its key figures were mired.

“Patient zero”, the starting point in the scandal linking the scandalous Burisma, its odious beneficiary Mykola Zlochevsky, the son of the then US Vice President Hunter Biden and US President Joe Biden himself, was a member of the Ukrainian Parliament Andriy Derkach.

Having vast political experience and maintaining long-standing contacts with American politicians and business, after the 2014 “Revolution of Dignity” in Ukraine, Derkach went into opposition to the current government of Petro Poroshenko, accusing him of the fact that the new Ukrainian president gave the US Democratic top brass (i.e. actually Joe Biden, who was in charge of Ukraine as US Vice President) the right to govern the country in exchange for the right to carry out corruption schemes and use US taxpayers’ money.

Publicly defending the interests of citizens of his country, including journalists and law enforcers, Derkach was able to receive insights from them – reliable information about corruption, offenses and illegal activities of the authorities. As a result, this resulted in a series of sensational press conferences, which for the first time proved NABU’s interference in the presidential election on Hillary Clinton’s side, coordination of Ukraine’s anti-corruption bodies with the U.S. Embassy, and most importantly, Biden’s involvement in corruption schemes at Burisma.

In November 2019, Andriy Derkach organized another press conference where he demonstrated correspondence between the NABU and the Prosecutor General’s Office of Ukraine suggesting that the NABU had sabotaged the investigation of cases against Mykola Zlochevsky and his Burisma group of companies. According to Derkach, the materials handed over to him by the investigative journalists explain well and illustrate why the NABU slowed down the investigation – they contained evidence of financial relations between Burisma and Hunter Biden’s company Rosemont Seneca.

It is necessary to pay tribute to the fact that having a law education and a scientific degree, Derkach always supported everything he said with documentary evidence. This time the confirmation was statements from Morgan Stanley on the accounts of Rosemont Seneca for several years between 2014 and 2016.

As stated by Derkach and according to these documents, the company of the son of U.S. Vice President Joe Biden received more than 4.8 million dollars (of which 900 thousand went directly to Biden’s personal expenses) for services of unclear content. An interesting fact is that the founders of the company were Hunter Biden and Devon Archer, each of whom were on the Board of Directors of Burisma. But it was obvious that this was not about salaries, but money for a different purpose…

Burisma later sued Derkach for allegedly disseminating false information, but after hearing arguments from the parties and reviewing the evidence, in late 2020 the court found that the facts as disclosed were true and dismissed Burisma’s lawsuit. And in April 2021, Derkach won against Burisma for the second time – Burisma lost the appeal in the Kyiv Court of Appeal, which confirmed the decision of the Pechersk District Court of Kyiv. It is noteworthy that the representatives of the company did not even deny the facts of the funds transfer, but only tried to challenge the amount of the transfers, though they could not prove this to the high court either.

In December 2019, after the new Prosecutor General of Ukraine Ruslan Ryaboshapka, appointed by the next President Volodymyr Zelensky, declared that “there is no Burisma case”, Derkach again caught law enforcers in a lie. At another press conference, he publicized a new suspicion against Burisma beneficiary Mykola Zlochevsky. It was in this suspicion that the prosecutors investigating the criminal proceedings (42014-1590) found that there were other payments to Hunter Biden’s company, which amounted to 3.4 million dollars. Later, the prosecutor of the Prosecutor General’s Office of Ukraine, Kostyantyn Kulyk, who investigated the Burisma-Zlochevsky case, confirmed that the criminal case file contained official documents on payments from Burisma’s accounts to companies associated with Hunter Biden.

In addition, Andriy Derkach together with Kostyantyn Kulyk managed to obtain valuable testimonies of witnesses – Latvian citizens who serviced front companies (Wirelogic Technology AS and Digitex Organization LLP, where Zlochevsky laundered money stolen and withdrawn from Ukraine). One of the witnesses also maintained a separate account of Burisma company, which was used only by Zlochovsky. The witness confirmed that on the instructions of two close aides of Zlochevsky (Vadym Pozharsky and Andriy Kicha) he carried out various transfers in his interests. Also, according to the witness, payments to Hunter Biden’s companies were made from the same account. In confirmation, the witness provided the investigation in Ukraine with his laptop, from which the transfers were made, and which had all the financial documentation on such transactions. What is now happening with this case and with this valuable evidence remains a mystery, but, judging by the general trend, it is closed, as well as all other cases related to the hot topic for the Ukrainian authorities – corruption of Biden and Burisma.

Mykola Zlochevsky very much wanted silence for himself and his very profitable business, so he was ready to pay – to pay everyone, including the Bidens and law enforcers in Ukraine. Especially at the moment when the Burisma case became publicized. And even despite the aforementioned statement by Prosecutor General Ryaboshapka in late 2019 that there was no Burisma and Biden case.

And as early as May 2020, Andriy Kicha, legal director of Burisma and Zlochevsky’s personal assistant, was detained for bribing the heads of the NABU and the Specialized Anti-Corruption Prosecutor’s Office in the amount of $5 million in cash (he and his accomplices stashed another $1 million in the trunk of the car as a payment for the services of intermediaries).

This bribe was the largest cash bribe, at least in recent European history. It was intended to close the criminal proceedings against Burisma and Zlochevsky. In other words, for closing the case in which the investigation proved the transfer of funds to Hunter Biden’s company. Such a bribe also broke the whole logic of Ryaboshapka – if there is no case and no evidence, why is such a huge bribe given?

Apparently, Zlochevsky wanted to make not only a present for his birthday on June 14 (on the audio recordings available to the investigation, Kicha hurried the prosecutors to close the case before that date), closing the criminal proceedings for $5 million, but also to protect his friend – “big guy”, on the eve of the presidential elections in the United States. Informed people in Ukrainian law enforcement circles pointed out that the NABU leadership was happy to combine business with pleasure and close the case for a couple of bags of cash dollars, but ran into a principled special prosecutor – Deputy Prosecutor General Nazar Kholodnytskyi, who decided to “insert his 5 kopecks” into the carefree life of NABU. It so happened that despite the fact that Kholodnitsky was above Sytnyk in the office hierarchy, the latter often put the young special prosecutor in an uncomfortable position, using his lobby in the U.S. Embassy. And when Sytnyk was compelled to “approve” the resolution to close the case (Ukrainian law provides for closing a case with suspects only upon the prosecutor’s authorization) from special prosecutor Kholodnytskyi, the latter took advantage of this opportunity.

It is rumored that Kholodnytskyi had time to make a decision, and he used it to consult with more “experienced” lawyers. One of them was Andriy Derkach, who gave him some sound advice: “You don’t know what to do? Do it according to the law!”

The fact remains that there was a case, and Zlochevsky’s assistant – legal director of Burisma Andriy Kicha – paid a bribe on it, and, as it has become clear by now, Ukrainian and US law enforcers also had evidence of Biden’s corruption.

However, instead of a costly gift – closing the case, the issue of Burisma received a new impetus. In June 2020, at the next press conference, Derkach together with Prosecutor Kulyk questioned the amount of the bribe, because according to the confirmed internal documents of the Prosecutor General’s Office of Ukraine (namely, in the report for its head) it was recorded that the mentioned Andriy Kicha had offered the bribe in the amount of 50 million dollars. However, this time it was not in cash, but through a number of newly created front companies.

What is it in this case, if they give 5 million dollars for its closure, hide it from the public and even dismiss the Prosecutor General? And why does Derkach care about it?

A new twist in this story was the audio recordings of conversations between Petro Poroshenko, Joe Biden, John Kerry, and even Vladimir Putin. They were later dubbed “Derkach tapes” by the media. As Derkach himself repeatedly stated, he was concerned about the situation when President Poroshenko was “selling” the country to external administration.

“The Derkach tapes” illustrated how much Joe Biden was interested in issues related to Ukraine’s most lucrative industries. Biden was interested in the fate of PrivatBank (Ukraine’s largest private bank, owned by oligarch Ihor Kolomoyskyi and nationalized by Poroshenko; Kolomoyskyi now is being tried in Ukraine at the request of the U.S., despite the fact that he is a close associate of President Zelensky), covered for the head of Naftogaz of Ukraine Andriy Kobolev, rejoiced at the NABU’s statement about Paul Manafort and the firing of Prosecutor General Shokin.

Among other things, Poroshenko, in his usual manner of conversation, informed Biden about the circumstances of the farewell to the Prosecutor General: “Despite the absence of any allegations of corruption and data on any illegal actions on his part, I specifically asked him [Shokin] to resign. According to the results of our meeting, he, despite the support in Parliament, promised me to submit his resignation”. In response, Joe Biden, having exhaled, did not hide his joy.

It is noteworthy that in the U.S., landmark processes are also beginning to take place, which not only confirm Derkach’s correctness, but also show how strong a system to cover up corruption schemes and influence peddling by the Biden family he has been trying to resist all these years. A telling example was the Comer committee’s fight to make public a confidential FBI document called Form FD-1023.

It was previously believed that Hunter Biden was paid $50,000 a month at Burisma, even though he had no oil and gas experience. But in mid-June 2023, through the efforts of Republican congressmen Chuck Grassley and James Comer, it became known that the FBI and the U.S. Department of Justice had information in their possession for several years that Joe Biden and Hunter Biden may have received at least one bribe of $5 million each. Moreover, the same source (Form FD-1023, prepared in June 2020) revealed that Zlochevsky may have recorded at least 17 phone conversations with Hunter and Joe Biden discussing corruption schemes in Ukraine.

Form FD-1023 is an FBI interview with its agent who, beginning in 2015, had been in close contact with Zlochevsky for several years. Characteristic examples from their many meetings and conversations.

Zlochevsky explains to the agent that Burisma must “pay the Bidens” because Ukrainian Prosecutor General Viktor Shokin is investigating its activities. The agent asks if it is possible to “pay each of the Bidens $50,000,” to which Zlochevsky replies that it will be “not $50,000” but “$5 million”: “$5 million for one Biden, $5 million for the other Biden.”

Zlochevsky tells the agent that he “paid” the Bidens “through so many different bank accounts” that investigators won’t be able to “unravel this for at least 10 years.” And that he was thus able to “not pay the Big Guy (a reference to Biden) directly.”

The full version of Form FD-1023 remained classified, so much so that even members of Comer’s committee saw it in redacted form, and that only after threatening FBI Director Christopher Wray with a contempt of Congress lawsuit. Republican congressmen have repeatedly said that the release of the FD-1023 form was blocked on purpose to ensure Biden could run for President.

At the end of 2022, another scandal unexpectedly erupted in the United States. The new owner of the social network Twitter, billionaire Elon Musk posted in his profile a link to internal documents of the social network, which were published by journalist Matt Taibbi.

From them it follows that on the eve of the election Twitter took “extraordinary measures” to hide the story about the connection between the Bidens and Burisma.

The disclosed fragments of internal correspondence, among other things, contain information about the story about Hunter Biden’s laptop. It became known that when in October 2020, when the New York Post publication appeared about secret emails received from the laptop of Hunter Biden forgotten in the repair, Twitter “took extraordinary measures to hide this story”.

In particular, the social network removed links to it, posted warnings about their “insecurity” and blocked their transmission directly through private messages.

In parallel, important processes showing how the Biden administration is cleaning up traces of corruption schemes on the eve of the presidential election are taking place in Ukraine. Andriy Kicha – the legal director of Burisma and a man privy to all the secrets of financial relations between Zlochevsky and the Biden family, who was caught receiving bribes of 5, and 1 million dollars, in fact, got away with it.

Kicha made a deal with the investigation and got off with a much lighter sentence than expected. The Supreme Anti-Corruption Court of Ukraine considered Kicha’s case in closed mode and in complete secrecy. The court’s decision remained classified for a long time, until Ukrainian journalists managed to get access to it. Thanks to the deal with the investigation, Kicha received a surprising decision: the court fully found him guilty under the article providing for 5 years of imprisonment, but punished him with one year of probation and released him.

And on August 1, 2023, following the same scheme, the panel of judges of the Supreme Anti-Corruption Court of Ukraine finally announced the verdict in the case of Mykola Zlochevsky.

The ex-minister, who was accused of embezzlement of public funds in especially large amounts, and at the suggestion of which the transfer of a record-high bribe to the heads of anti-corruption bodies of Ukraine was organized, was fined 68 thousand hryvnias (the equivalent of 2000 US dollars) and was also released.

Analyzing the activities of Andriy Derkach, it becomes clear that he was not concerned about Joe Biden personally, but about what Biden, his team and the puppet government they put in place are doing to Ukraine. That is why it is so important to listen to Andriy Derkach during the impeachment hearings of Joe Biden. It is Derkach’s testimony about Burisma’s activities and Biden’s “business-schemes” in Ukraine, beginning with his time as U.S. Vice President in Barack Obama’s administration, that will be the deciding factor affecting Biden’s chances for a second term.
