Kolomoisky [banned from USA March 2021] made Zelensky a star by producing a TV show featuring Zelensky as the president. Then he supported Zelensky for actual President.
But Kolomoisky isn’t the only “investor” in Zelensky, and you don’t pay someone millions (and billions) of dollars unless they’re providing a return on investment. In this case the “return” is to allow Ukraine to be exploited by the West as circumstances dictate.
Follow the money: George Webb reports on Zelensky’s cash. “Breaking down Ukraine – let’s start with Zelensky’s $35M mansion in Sunny Isles, FL built by Kolomoisky and Pinchuk. $1.3B in the bank!!”
Ilya Kiva (political opposition):
“More than a billion dollars are held in Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky’s accounts abroad. This was announced by the deputy of the Verkhovna Rada of the Opposition Platform – Party For Life Ilya Kiva.
“According to him, Zelensky has accumulated $1.2 billion in the Dresdner Bank Lateinamerika in Costa Rica during the two and a half years of his presidency. This money was transferred to the president by Ukrainian oligarchs, such as Rinat Akhmetov, Viktor Pinchuk, Igor Kolomoisky.
“As Kiva noted, replenishment is done regularly, in tranches of $12 million to $35 million. And they go through banks like First Union Bank, Deutsche Bank, Banque Nationale de Paris.
“According to the deputy, the movement of such funds would be impossible without the control of the authorities of Germany and France.”
“….Zelensky [also] managed to buy a villa in Miami for $34 million, as well as several sets of jewelry for $5.6 million.”https://archive.ph/2022.03.01-235115/https://eprimefeed.com/latest-news/zelensky-found-a-billion-dollars-and-a-villa-in-miami-2/20181/
“The Pandora papers reveal that Volodymyr Zelensky and his entourage own offshore companies in the British Virgin Islands, Belize, and Cyprus, three flats in London worth $7.4 million, and that the Ukrainian president potentially received dividends from a company he no longer officially owns.
“The documents also reveal the Ukrainian President’s potential involvement in the laundering of $40 million belonging to Igor Kolomoysky, for which the oligarch has been placed under sanctions by the US.”https://archive.ph/2021.10.06-092540/https://www.donbass-insider.com/2021/10/05/ukraine-pandora-papers-reveal-zelensky-offshore-schemes/
