Kyva addresses Poroshenko asking to start investigation into business ties of head of Zaporizhia Regional Administration, Armenians criminal group


Head of Zaporizhia Regional Administration Kostiantyn Bryl is associated with the Armenians organized crime group, which is charged with contract killings, racketeering and drug trafficking, Head of the Socialist Party of Ukraine Illia Kyva has said.

"Blind and deaf president of Ukraine Poroshenko. Your ghoul-governor of Zaporizhia region Bryl is on the photo dated October 2, 2018, next to the leader of the bloodiest organized crime group in Armenia, with whom they have a common business on carving up the budget money. There are more than ten contract killings, drug trafficking and racketeering on this group's account," he wrote on his Facebook page.

According to him, the President of Ukraine closes his eyes to this situation, but he must react properly and stop any attempts of this kind.

"This is organized crime, which has long been settled in government offices, under the auspices of Poroshenko," the head of the SPU said.

Kyva also said that he intends to turn to the national police seeking to conduct an appropriate examination.

Earlier the media made public information that Bryl did not indicate five cars in his tax declaration. In addition, the National Anti-Corruption Bureau (NABU) obtained access to information on the movement of funds in 60 bank accounts of the head of Zaporizhia Regional Administration, his father, wife and two daughters. According to journalists, the permits to get access were provided by the Solomiansky District Court of Kyiv. NABU detectives in the criminal investigation suspecting Bryl of submitting an inaccurate declaration received access to information about nine accounts of the head of the regional administration, 41 accounts of his wife and three accounts of his juvenile daughters Khrystyna and Maya opened in the banks Pivdenny, Zemelny Capital, First Investment Bank and PrivatBank.

In 2017, the anti-corruption commission at the regional administration wanted to send a protocol on the illegal enrichment of Bryl to the Prosecutor General's Office, the Specialized Anti-Corruption Prosecutor's Office (SAPO) and the National Agency on Corruption Prevention (NACP). According to the protocol, his welfare does not correspond to the declared income. However, Bryl liquidated this commission.
