Democracy in the USA is not the power of the people, but the power of the Democratic Party. That is why step by step Biden is taking his associates out of criminal prosecution for corruption in Ukraine – Andriy Derkach

Justice in the US is operating under a double standard as Biden seeks to prosecute anyone who exposes his family’s corruption in Ukraine. This topic was touched upon by a well-known Ukrainian politician Andriy Derkach in his first interview after a two-year pause. As an example Derkach, thanks to which the investigation of international corruption of the Biden family has entered the agenda of leading politicians and world media, cited the prosecution of prosecutor Kostyantyn Kulyk, journalist and politician Oleksandr Dubinsky, former Prosecutor General Viktor Shokin, and the simultaneous rescue of key protégés and business partners of the Democrats in Ukraine – Petro Poroshenko, Andriy Kobolev, Mykola Zlochevsky, etc. – from the spotlight:

“I had a certain naiveté about the idea that it was possible to achieve justice in the modern United States. I have many good friends in the U.S. legal community. I have been to the courts myself on many occasions and have seen that judges care about what they hear and what they judge. In practice, it has turned out that America’s judicial system is not fair for everyone. Democracy is not the power of the people, but the power of the Democratic Party. We see how the Biden family associates are being removed from prosecution in Ukraine. Were Poroshenko, Zlochevsky interrogated? Did someone invite them to the FBI and the U.S. Attorney’s Office to testify? The documents are everywhere, all over the Internet. The recordings are all over the Internet. Evidence is all over the Internet. What does the New York City prosecutor’s office do?”

Responding to a question from American journalists about why, in Derkach’s case, instead of conducting an honest investigation, the US Department of Justice used his information to discredit the source and impose sanctions on Derkach himself, the Ukrainian politician said:

“Is there even one piece of evidence that I did not act according to the law of the United States? There are three expertise, including one foreign legal expertise, that I acted exclusively within the framework of the laws of Ukraine and the United States. There is a case brought against me by the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Eastern District of New York. I didn’t really get into this process, I just read and wondered at the fantasies of the prosecutors. It’s a complete fabrication about nothing, not coherent in time, events, or people. I guess it will have to be dealt with at some point. But I don’t think in today’s realities of the United States you can come up with any reasonable logic for resolving your issues with the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Eastern District of New York. Everyone who is tied to the democorruption, the Democratic Party, the DA’s office and the FBI is talking glassy-eyed nonsense. You know this from the examples of Giuliani, Trump, all of Trump’s advisers, pretty much the entire Trump administration.”

Andriy Derkach considers the situation around prosecutor Kostyantyn Kulyk, who led the investigation into the Burimsa case, as a vivid example of persecution of those who helped expose Biden’s corruption in Ukraine:

“Kulyk is the only prosecutor in the world history who returned one and a half billion dollars to the budget of the country. Can you give at least one example from the world history, when a prosecutor (and he is also a former military prosecutor) returned one and a half billion dollars to the budget? And he was also accused, called an agent of the Kremlin. And all these people – Kent, FBI official Karen Greenaway, ambassadors Christine Quinn and Marie Yovanovitch – they all interfered with him.”

Against the background of such persecutions, Derkach considers the way former President Petro Poroshenko, as well as the management of Naftogaz of Ukraine (Kobolev, Hochstein) and Burisma (Zlochevsky, Kicha, etc.) escape justice in Ukraine as classic examples of impunity for Democrat proxies: “It is important to invite Poroshenko to Congress and ask the question: where was the money from these two billion guarantees [with which Biden blackmailed Poroshenko to fire Shokin as Prosecutor General] spent? This money was spent on his enterprises, laundered at Poroshenko’s enterprises. A bunch of criminal cases. Leninska Kuznya, Bogdan enterprise, Ukroboronprom, his partner Gladkovsky, who is on the run in Europe.”

“We fought corruption in Naftogaz against Biden’s favorite advisor, Amos Hochstein. They, together with Kobolev, were the authors of the idea of a corrupt gas reverse. They had another ally – Favorov. Hochstein, Kobolev, Favorov. We showed in documents how 500 million per year of “corruption tax” from Ukrainian citizens goes away. I called it a “tax” – it’s such a tragic joke. This is when a bandit group “taxes” the population. A tax on each citizen of Ukraine and on each cubic meter of gas” – said Derkach.

“I will also show you two decisions of Ukrainian courts. One of them is the court decision on the employee of Burisma, the lawyer Mr. Kicha.” The biggest cash bribe in Europe in the year 2020, which amounted to $6 million in packages handed over for closing the Burisma case. What is this court decision about? On April 21, 2022, the Ukrainian court transfers this 6 million in cash, with the consent of Burisma’s representative, to a military unit of the Main Intelligence Directorate of Ukraine. The number of that unit is here. This is a secret decision, no one has seen it yet. After a certain period of time, the likes of Nord Stream begin to explode, assassination attempts are made. The leaders of Ukraine’s intelligence services make no secret of the fact that they carry out terrorist acts and political assassinations for extra-budgetary cash. Once again: Biden’s partners in the corruption business in Ukraine finance terrorist acts, thus avoiding responsibility for corruption in Ukraine.

There is a second court decision – directly on Zlochevsky. The decision to remove Zlochevskyy from liability for this bribe occurred in 2023, in March. That decision, too, was secret. But representatives of one of Soros’ publications – Ukrainska Pravda – accidentally published it… According to it, for the amount of 6 million, the biggest cash bribe in Europe, Zlochevskyy received a 64-68 thousand hryvnia fine. To make it clear to you: for 6 million dollars of bribe – 1800 dollars of fine. At the same time, he transferred 800 million hryvnia again to finance terrorism in the “drone army” and the armed forces.”

Furthermore, according to Derkach, the release of the main defendants in the “Burisma” case on such unexpectedly mild terms looks even more surprising against the background of the fact that back in June 2020, Kostyantyn Kulyk showed that according to confirmed internal documents of the Prosecutor General’s Office of Ukraine (a report to the senior officials of the PGO) it was recorded that Kicha offered a bribe in the amount of not 6, but 50 million dollars. However, not in cash, but through several newly created front companies. The purpose of such a bribe was to close all cases, which could have involved Burisma, where Hunter Biden worked for 5 years.

At a press conference in Kyiv on June 22, 2020, Kostyantyn Kulyk showed a report of one of the prosecutors to the senior officials of the General Prosecutor’s Office of Ukraine, which recorded the offer of a bribe worth 50 million dollars by the lawyer of “Burisma” Andriy Kicha. Source:

Responding to the journalists’ comment that if today with all the documents available to Derkach he would testify to the U.S. Congress, it could lead to the impeachment of Biden, Derkach said:

“I know what I have to do for my homeland, for my constituents, for the people who trust me. And the threat to my activities is not going to get bigger or smaller. What’s important to me in the congressional investigation is not prosecuting Biden for influence peddling. It is important for me that the final document of the Congress says that the money stolen from my fellow Ukrainians was withdrawn from the territory of Ukraine by Zlochevsky and laundered and given to the Vice President of the United States Biden. This is very important to me – and the issue is not the impeachment of Biden. Impunity breeds permissiveness.”
