The correspondence between Minister without Portfolio in charge of anticorruption fighting Oleg Parakuda and First Deputy Head of the National Bank Oleksandr Pisaruk reveals that the officials are not only well in the know of those events but appear to be the moving force behind them (perhaps they are trying to keep hryvnya afloat this way).
The correspondence was posted in the Internet by a hacker group Cyber Riot : https://vk.com/novorossiya_cyber_riot?w=wall-71999219_1881 BTW there’s info that this is actually an SBU project. I found it in the blog of a rather unbiased guy from the Western Ukraine : http://frmlvivwithlove.livejournal.com/11960.html And here is some evidence retold in English : http://konovalenkostep.livejournal.com/663.html
It looks like Parakuda and Pisaruk are intensely trying to escape international scandal after penetration of counterfeit dollars and euros into the EU space. However, judging from the letter of the ECB president Mario Draghi to High Representative of the EU for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy Federica Mogherini the scandal is pending.
Draghi is voicing his worry to Mogherini over Kiev’s ignoring of the repeated requests by ECB to deliver comments on the situation. He is also demanding some real steps on her part to solve the problem. Moreover, Draghi sees it vital to tighten control over crossing of the EU borders by Ukrainians.
Amusingly, there’s a different document now posted under this number at the ECB site! What’s that? Is it just a mistake or a deliberate effort to hide sensitive info? Let’s leave it for researchers in conspiracy theories to dig into it.
Future events to follow stay unclear so far but in the absence of any attempts to halt production and circulation of fake dollars and euros Ukraine is sure to be left without any IMF money as well as visa-free status in the EU.
