Ex-Deputy head of the presidential Administration Oleksiy Filatov considers the claim of the Prosecutor General in the case of the sale of the Ukrainian Media Holding (UMH) politically motivated
This was reported by Ukrainian news.
“Claims to this agreement have obviously politically motivated, as evidenced not only by their apparent inconsistency, but when they were announced – immediately before the first round of the presidential elections,” — said the lawyer on Monday before a visit to the Prosecutor General.
He also drew attention to the fact that these claims first put forward by the Prosecutor Konstantin Kulik, whose identity “draws attention”.
Filatov does not consider himself a suspect in the case of the UMH, as in “the message of suspicion”, which the artist published in March, there is no information about the Commission of any criminal acts.
The lawyer stressed that the deal to sell UMH conform to the norms of English law and passed the compliance check with international banks. All this deal has served more than 30 lawyers from several Ukrainian and foreign companies.
As reported, in 2013, UMH Group, the main owner of which was made by Boris Lozhkin, was filed by the holding company VETEK Sergey Kurchenko. One of the law firms supporting the transaction was legal firm “Vasil Kisil and partners”, where at that time worked Oleksiy Filatov.
According to the publication Forbes Ukraine, the sale of UMH Group entered the TOP-10 largest M&A deals of the first half of 2013.
After the election of Petro Poroshenko in may 2014 the President of Ukraine, his Administration was headed by Borys Lozhkin. In the post of Deputy head of the AP Alex Filatov oversaw the development and implementation of judicial reform.

First attempt at legal harassment Filatov took place on the eve of the first round of the presidential elections in March 2019: attorney Kulik said that ex-Deputy head of the AP received the message of suspicion. But the Prosecutor’s office denied the statements of Sandpiper and Prosecutor General Yury Lutsenko said that Filatov is not a suspect.
“In the UMH I haven’t been able to get the Prosecutor Kulik explanation, in any actions, there are signs of criminal offences”, — said Yuri Lutsenko.
After that, Kulik withdrew from the group, which was engaged in the business Kurchenko and the General Inspectorate of the GPU launched an investigation into the incident with the “message of suspicion”.
In this case the Prosecutor Kulik was officially accused of illegal enrichment. It was established that the family of Kulik owns the state, which significantly exceeds the officially declared income.
