Čekijos pėdsakas korupcijos skandale dėl ginklų tiekimo Ukrainai




Ukrainos žiniasklaida CENSOR.NET pranešimų, kad More than a year ago, Yuriy Zbitnev’s company “Lviv Arsenal” received a contract worth 1.4 billion, but never delivered the weapons. Ukrainian journalists have been writing about this case for six months, but there has been no communication from law enforcement on this story. A request from the Public Anti-Corruption Council at the Ministry of Defence revealed that the National Police is investigating the case of non-delivery.

Tuo pačiu metu, sausio 24 d., „Hromadske“ paskelbė istoriją, kurioje vienas iš sandoryje dalyvavusių asmenų tiesiogiai pareiškė, kad tuometinis Valstybinės karinės technikos gamyklos vadovas Lievas pasiūlė jam kelis kartus išpūsti amunicijos kainą. Ir kaina tikrai buvo išpūsta. Read about the new details of the “Lviv Arsenal” deal in Censor.NET’s article.

Six months ago, when asking about this contract, the author heard: “It looks like it was a special operation by Moscow to prevent us from getting these mines.” At the time, the author was sceptical. She thought it was just your way of explaining away your lack of discernment in suppliers. But the further we went, the more arguments this theory had.

Per brangu ir 4 milijonai eurų tamsoje

As you know, on 10 October 2022, “Lviv Arsenal” signed a contract with the Ministry of Defence to supply 120 mm and 82 mm mortar rounds.

Bendrovė gavo 97 procentų avansinį mokėjimą už įsipareigojimą per du mėnesius pristatyti ginklus Ukrainai. Pinigai buvo sumokėti, nukreipti per kelias bendroves – first through the Slovakian company “Sevotech”, then the Croatian company “WDG Promet” – but the weapons were never delivered.

In March 2023, the Ministry of Defence of Ukraine filed a claim with the commercial court to recover UAH 1,340,465,698 in prepayment, as well as UAH 90,683,623.06 in fines and UAH 96,734,638 in penalties for late delivery of goods from “Lviv Arsenal”.

26 m. rugsėjo 2023 d Teismas ieškinį patenkino.


Tačiau bendrovė kreipėsi į Šiaurės komercinį apeliacinį teismą. Sausio 24 d. ministerija apeliaciją laimėjo.

Šios story of the non-delivery of weapons by “Lviv Arsenal” atrodo kaip suplanuota apgaulė iš visų pusių. Censor.NET tai jau ne kartą yra aprašęs.

Pirma, the Ministry was not granted a licence for the producer – Croatia. It was only given to the transit country, Slovakia.

Antra, ministerija sutiko pirkti 82 kalibrą už kainą, kuri buvo gerokai didesnė už tuometines kainas. Šis turas buvo sudarytas už 10,200 2022 UAH. Palyginimui, 3,700 metų birželį Ukrainos Armor šio kalibro tiekė už 6,100 UAH, o rugpjūtį Ukrspetsexport už XNUMX UAH.

The price of the “Lviv Arsenal” is not only higher than the previous prices, but also UAH 2,100 more expensive than the prices for similar products offered by “Progress” in December. Even in 2023, with the price of ammunition constantly rising, the 82nd mortar round did not cost the same as in the scandalous contract.

Додаток до контракту

Trečia. If you take the difference with the price of “Progress” and multiply it by the number of ammunition units under the contract, you get 126 million in margin.

If we compare the price of a 120 mm mortar round with the price from “Ukrspecexport” as of August 2022, it was UAH 17,300 per unit, while “Arsenal’s” price was UAH 19,200.

And now, one of the intermediaries in the deal, a representative of “Sevotech’s” supervisory board, Oleksandr Khoroshayev, has pasakojo Hromadske that representatives of the Ministry of Defence wanted to get kickbacks from the contract with “Lviv Arsenal’.

“I get a call from “Arsenal”: Liev wants the mines not for 240 euros, but for 330, and the mines that are for 510 are also for 630. I explain to him: I will not pay these kickbacks, it is impossible. There is a European Commission in Brussels that is responsible for all the money from Ukraine that comes here. For every 20,000 euros, they will “squeeze” me. I say: I can only give 5-7%,” Khoroshayev told the journalist.

The former head of the DVTP, who signed a contract with “Lviv Arsenal”, Oleksandr Liev, denies any contact with Khoroshayev.

“I am not familiar with this person. I have never heard his name (before the journalists’ investigation). I did not hold verbal negotiations with “Arsenal”, there was only correspondence,” Liev told Censor.NET.

“The price in their offer did not change and was (if I remember correctly) 485 euros for a 120 mm mine plus 3% agency income for “Lviv Arsenal”, which is almost 19 thousand UAH. And for an 82 mm mine (if I remember correctly), it was almost UAH 10 thousand, which at that time was 260 euros with delivery and 3% agency fee. These were the prices in the government contract. At the time, these were absolutely reasonable prices,” he added.

“So, the information you are asking me to comment on is false. In addition, I would like to remind you that it was me who put stiff penalties for breach of contract and delay in the contract, and it was me who eventually issued fines to “Lviv Arsenal” along with an appeal to law enforcement agencies. And it was me who initiated the seizure of funds on their account after the delivery date was missed,” Liev said.

Tačiau panašu, kad ir Chorošajevas, ir Lievas nori pasirodyti geresni, nei yra.

The Hromadske journalists have payments that show that “Lviv Arsenal” paid the first intermediary, “Sevotech”, more than 12 million euros, but then only 8 million went to the Croatian company “WDG Promet”.


Tai yra, 4 milijonai eurų greičiausiai atsidūrė nežinomų įmonių rankose. O Kroatijos įmonę pasiekę pinigai niekada nebuvo išleisti amunicijai.

Then came “WDG Promet’s” tears that they had been robbed by their own bank operator, Kamil Babukh. In return, he accused “WDG Promet” of buying the plant with Ukrainian money.

In the latest investigation by Hromadske, Babukh explicitly states that there was no money in the accounts of “WDG Promet” until the money transferred by the Ministry of Defence. He claims that the company’s owners, the Zubak family, have been looking to buy the “Vitezit” gunpowder plant in Bosnia since 2021.

Įtartinas? Taip.

Tai ne visi įtartini epizodai.

Caliphs for an hour. A very strange supervisory board of “Sevotech”

Ankstesniame straipsnyje Censor.NET rašė, kad beveik kartu su sutarties pasirašymu, a tam tikras Vladyslavas Klishcharas prisijungė prie Sevotech stebėtojų tarybos.

Tai asmuo, priklausantis Andrijaus Hmyrino, Janukovyčiaus laikų fiskalinio pareigūno, aplinkai. was a member of President Zelensky’s office 2021.

Hmyryn yra kaltinamasis NABU byloje dėl viešųjų lėšų grobstymo from Odesa Port and the United Mining and Chemical Company. The case also involves Klishchar’s companies EPI Group s.r.o. and Belanto, to which UMCC sold ilmenite at a low price, which was then shipped to Russia or occupied Crimea at market prices.

Tačiau Hmyryn spėjo pabėgti į užsienį prieš paskelbiant įtarimus, o Klishcharas nebuvo apkaltintas.

In a commentary to Hromadske, the businessman assured that he had never had anything to do with the Ministry of Defence’s money. However, his arrival at “Sevotech” and his departure strangely coincide with the signing of a contract with “Lviv Arsenal” and the start of massive media coverage in 2023.


Klishchar has been living in the Czech Republic for a long time. He has several companies there, each more interesting than the last. Among them is a certain LEO INTERNATIONAL GRUPP, where Belanto’s attorney Oleksandr Bezzubets and Oleksandr Belyaev are partners.

Taip, tai tas pats Oleksandras Beliajevas, buvusio SSU vadovo Ivano Bakanovo svainis ir buvęs paties Volodymyro Zelenskio verslo partneris. A daugiau nei įdomus ir šlykštus personažas.

Another company is ILS INVESTMENT GROUP s.r.o. Klishchar has partners there – Belyaev and Alexander Melnychuk.

Klishchar says he had nothing to do with the supply of weapons to Ukraine. This is true. No one supplied the weapons. Just as “Sevotech” delivered only 2,500 bulletproof vests and helmets instead of 17,000. The contract was signed in April 2022, and the delivery was supposed to take place in July 2022. But 14,500 bulletproof vests and helmets were never delivered. “Sevotech” shifted the blame to its supplier MTC Slovakia.

So, it seems that it is worth taking a closer look at “Sevotech” and who is part of this company.

“Our company Sevotech spol. s.r.o. has been operating in the European and global arms market for the past 27 years. During this time, we have implemented a number of successful armament projects and contracts in many parts of the world. We value our reputation and the reputation of our European partners,” said Jan Hodermarski, the company’s CEO, in a statement po to, kai UP paskelbė pirmąjį straipsnį apie Romano Romaniuko sukčiavimą.

Наглядова рада

Okay, let’s look at who is on the company’s supervisory board. The current members are Ladislav Hodermarski, Zuzana Maitanova, Magdalena Dobiasova, and the former deputy CEO of “Progress”, Oleksandr Khoroshayev, who left the Ukrainian company on a business trip in 2022 and remained abroad.


However, this list includes an even larger group of people who for some reason joined the company’s supervisory board for a year or even for a few months. For example, the aforementioned Klishchar joined “Sevotech’s” supervisory board for only a year.

Stebėtojų tarybos nariais taip pat buvo: Martinas Haringas (nuo 11.04.2022-08.12.2022-11.04.2022 iki 08.12.2022-11.04.2022-08.12.2022), Janas Kuchera (nuo XNUMX-XNUMX-XNUMX iki XNUMX-XNUMX-XNUMX) ir Katharina Haring (nuo XNUMX-XNUMX-XNUMX iki XNUMX-XNUMX-XNUMX).

Tikriausiai turėtų nustebti, kad trys asmenys stebėtojų taryboje yra tiek pat laiko.

Tačiau yra ir kitų keistų ir net skandalingų dalykų.

Martinas Haringas, Katharina Haring ir Janas Kuchera taip pat dalyvauja kitoje toje pačioje kompanijoje. Šį kartą Čekijoje. Tai Nadační fond EDRCh.

Схема зв'язків EDRCH

Bendrovė buvo įkurta 28 m. kovo 2022 d. kaip labdaros organizacija.

Tiesą sakant, tai yra kito Katharinos Haring projekto tęsinys, Europos pasirengimo gynybai rūmai, zs On. jo svetainė, the company proclaims its goal to promote Ukraine’s membership in NATO and the EU.


Women’s leadership with a Moscow accent

Among its tasks, EDRCh declares the following: “Ensuring independent supplies of military equipment for Ukraine. To build a network of reliable and transparent companies in NATO countries that will reliably fulfil their obligations to Ukrainian partners in the field of military supplies and thus ensure the stability of military supplies both for Ukraine’s own needs and for fulfilling the obligations of Ukrainian companies to partners in third markets.”


Yes, you’re not confused. This is written on the website of the company whose representative was on the supervisory board of “Sevotech”, which failed to supply Ukraine with 14,500 helmets and bulletproof vests. As well as 100,000 mines. Indeed, “a network of reliable and transparent companies in NATO countries”.

Martiną Haringą ir Janą Kucherą sunku atpažinti toliau. Tačiau to, kas buvo nustatyta apie Kathariną Haring, pakanka skandalui sukelti.

This is a rare case where the heroine of the article has an active social media presence. And that’s because in reality, Haring’s main business is not arms supplies. It is lectures on women’s leadership.

Катерина Гарінг

That’s why almost the entirety of Haring’s page is devoted to stories of her students who have become successful. Or speeches at relevant events. She was even included in the Czech Forbes list of 150 successful women. She was ranked 65th. With a company that made… exhibitions.

Катаріна Гарінг

If you open the register of Haring’s first company, you will find out that its business partner is a Russian.

Катерина Гарінг

And on 22 December 2022, Haring, whose website declares the independent and proper supply of weapons to Ukraine, took part in an online meeting of the World Association of Women Entrepreneurs FCEM (Femmes Chefs d’Entreprises Mondiales) in Moscow.

According to the “Union of Women of Russia”, Ekaterina Garing organised and moderated the meeting as the Association’s vice-president.

Panašus susirinkimas buvo surengtas 21 m. gruodžio 2023 d.

Зустріч Союзу женщин Росії

In addition to Haring, both meetings were attended by Galyna Roketska, an adviser to the head of the Russian Women’s Union. And it is not only important that this “Union” constantly supports Putin. It is also important that it organises business courses for displaced women from Donbas, which was destroyed by Russian aggression.

Союз женщин Росії

Pati Roketska taip pat labai spalvinga. Ne tik todėl, kad jos namų tvarkytoja pavogė iš jos 13 mln. Ji yra buvusio Tiumenės srities gubernatoriaus Leonido Roketskio žmona. Ji granddaughter works in President Putin’s administration. Roketską sieja labai platūs ryšiai – nuo ​​politinių iki kriminalinių.

Онучка в АП Путіна

And it is with this person that Haring cooperates and shares some common values, as she was a member of the supervisory board of “Sevotech”, which failed to supply Ukraine with 100,000 mines. But whose other company declares a “reliable supply of weapons” for Ukraine.

This is not an isolated case. Haring has been to Russia many times, and she has a photo from the same “Union of Women of Russia” from 16 February 2022. After all, Haring even studied in Moscow.

Фейсбук Катерина Гарінг

The icing on the cake is that, following previous investigations into Klishchar’s team, the author received a business card photo of the mysterious Oleksandr Melnychuk. As it turns out, he is also a member of the Haring EDRCh company. The one that is supposed to be an “independent supplier” of weapons to Ukraine.
