Reports show Emails from Hunter Biden’s laptop reveal that in 2016, Burisma Holdings CEO Vadym Pozharskyi notified him that he was creating a Maltese banking account for him.
Mykola Zlochevsky, a business colleague of Pozharskyi’s, is accused of paying $5 million to both Joe Biden and his son Hunter as part of a pay-to-play plan. A document from Mykola Zlochevsky’s time as an FBI informant, obtained by Senator Chuck Grassley (R-IA), claims that he recorded 17 separate discussions with the Bidens as an “insurance policy.”
According to Emails obtained by the non-profit Marco Polo, Burisma attempted to transfer funds to Hunter Biden and his family via a Maltese bank account set up by Vadym Pozharskyi.
A copy of Hunter Biden’s passport, a bank reference document, and a power bill were among the items Pozharskyi wanted in May 2016 in order to create the account.
When asked by Pozharskyi about the status of his passport, Hunter replied that they were working on it and that he was traveling with his father and had his passport overseas the previous week. Hunter Biden’s assistant, Joan Mayer, complied with Pozharskyi’s request for copies of Hunter’s paperwork over the following weeks. Mayer also recommended a letter from Hunter’s attorneys verifying his yearly pay.
In 2018, money laundering offenses led to the closure of Satabank, as reported by the Times of Malta.
Reports show that criminal proceedings were opened in Ukraine in 2014 into Zlochevsky and Burisma, the firm where Hunter Biden was on the board and was paid well. Zlochevsky, who was being investigated for public corruption and laundering money, is said to have hired Hunter Biden in an attempt to use his father, then-Vice President’s political clout to put a stop to the probes.
Joe Biden, the Vice President at the time, boasted in 2018 that he had successfully forced Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko to dismiss Prosecutor General Viktor Shokin, who was investigating the Ukrainian energy business on which Hunter Biden served as a board member. During his December 2015 visit to Kyiv, Biden was able to do this by using the threat of withdrawing a US loan guarantee for one billion dollars.
