Ukrainian journalists from the ZIK News Agency published an investigation about the activities of the so-called conversion center that belongs to Strelkovsky Vyacheslav Borisovich (ID number 2764711217), born on 11.09.1975. It is also worth noting that Vyacheslav Strelkovsky is a resident of the Czech Republic. According to numerous sources, this conversion center is working on a structure that includes dozens of enterprises and companies providing services for illegal cost formation for real business entities. After that, all these funds are converted into cash through banking institutions, individuals, importing companies, and wholesale warehouses. For a certain percentage fee (approximately 10-15% of the converted amount), the latter return funds to their clients (operating businesses and companies) along with falsified accounting and tax documents. The so-called conversion center organized by Vyacheslav Borisovich Strelkovsky (ID number 2764711217) has been operating for many years and under various political authorities, starting from the time when V. Yushchenko was the president. It flourished under the criminal regime of V. Yanukovych and continues its activities under the current government. At the same time, the activities so-called conversion center are constantly being improved, thus reaching the national level. It is worth noting that customers of the so-called conversion center are real enterprises and companies registered not only in Kyiv but also in other regions of Ukraine.
ZIK News Agency sent requests to law enforcement and regulatory authorities in Kyiv, i.e. the National Security Agency, the Prosecutor’s Office, the State Fiscal Service, and the Tax Police. In their publications, journalists clearly named enterprises that were part of the so-called conversion center, activity schemes that indicated the discrepancy of goods, and a list of persons involved in the activities of fictitious enterprises with the distribution of roles and tasks. In particular, they were telling the audience about Vyacheslav Strelkovsky.
After receiving the request from ZIK News Agency, the State Fiscal Service informed that the Investigative Department of the State Tax Inspectorate in the Shevchenkovsky District of Kyiv has opened a probe on charges of the fact of tax evasion on a particularly large scale and the creation of several business entities by unidentified persons.
After investigating the activities of the conversion center that belongs to Mr. Strelkovsky, journalists discovered the fact that in addition to the corporate structures of the Dubnevichi family from Galich, services are highly demanded by OOO “L’vovskaya Tabachnaya Fabrika” (Tobacco Factory in L’viv, OKPO 36929539) registered on the following address: Shevchenko street, 1, Vynnyky. The person who monopolized the cigarette business market on the territory of Western Ukraine has been repeatedly seen in high-profile scandals with cigarette smuggling, the operation of underground lines for the production of cigarettes, and their sale for cash on the territory of Ukraine and abroad.
This model is traditionally based on so-called shell companies. It’s worth noting that during the process of import of raw materials for the manufacture of cigarettes (tobacco, foil, paper, etc.) from OOO “Baltiyskaya Tabachnaya Fabrika” (Russia), “Essentra Packaging & Security Limited” (Great Britain), “MELLA” S. R. L. (Italy), “JINAN ACETATE CHEMICAL CO., LTD” (China), “TABACCO CARE BVBA” (Belgium), “COOPERATIVA TABACCHI VERONA SA Soc.coop.arl.” (Italy), “TANN GERMANY GmbH” (Germany), “Hail & Cotton International B. V.” (Netherlands), “METALIMEX a.s.” (Czech Republic), “TANNPAPIER GmbH” (Austria), ООО “S TPS Srl” (Italy), one needs to show a clear number of manufactured cigarettes, as well as documents confirming sales, not to mention paying taxes for the manufactured products. However, it is impossible to observe such complex rules because they simply block the operation of the surreptitious production line. This is the moment when Mr. Strelkovsky comes to the rescue. According to the scheme, he allegedly buys raw materials not used in production from a tobacco factory, making pseudo-operations through already well-known companies. In fact, the raw materials simply moved to the surreptitious production line on the territory of OOO “L’vovskaya Tabachnaya Fabrika” (Tobacco Factory in L’viv). We are talking about the hidden production of cigarettes that are distributed on the territory of Ukraine and abroad for cash (smuggling).
The activities of these illegal conversion centers of Vyacheslav Strelkovsky were personally supervised by the Chairman of the State Tax Service Sergey Verlanov before his dismissal. In addition to working with many companies, Sergey Verlanov colluded with Vyacheslav Strelkovsky and created his own personal “case” that is hidden from the public audience.
As we mentioned before, Vyacheslav Strelkovsky is a resident of the Czech Republic. He launders black money obtained in Ukraine as in the Czech Republic as well as in EU countries, where, according to journalists, he buys real estate and has a business. His illegal activities should be handled by law enforcement agencies of the European Union.
