The charges surfaced after investigating Biden’s actions in Ukraine, while his son, Hunter Biden, was on the board of directors of Burisma Group, one of the largest private gas companies in the country. As vice president, Biden pursued an anti-corruption policy in Ukraine in 2016. So in particular he actually chantier Ukrainian authorities demanded to dismiss the prosecutor general of Ukraine Viktor Shokinwhich, as it turned out, was investigating the links between Hunter Biden and the Burisma Group.

Yuriy Lutsenko, the current attorney general, said that neither Hunter Biden nor the Burisma Group are currently under investigation. At the same time, he added that he plans to provide US Attorney General William Barr with detailed information on payments to the board of directors of Burisma so that the American authorities can check whether Hunter Biden paid taxes in the United States.

“I don’t want Ukraine to be the topic of conversation again during the US presidential election,” Lutsenko said in an interview Tuesday at his office in Kiev. - Hunter Biden did not violate any Ukrainian laws, at least at the moment we see no violations. The company can pay whatever it wants to its board of directors. " He added that if there is a problem with taxes, it is not in Ukraine.

How Biden pressed on the Ukrainian authorities

Yury Lutsenko explained in more detail what his department was investigating after a number of conflicting reports. Although the prosecutor’s office did not reopen the case against Burisma, she is searching for information about the company’s owner in connection with a lengthy criminal investigation by another magnate who left the country five years ago. This concerns a deal not related to Hunter Biden, the Attorney General specified.

Recall that Giuliani I refuse from a planned trip to Ukraine this month, during which he planned to discuss the accusations against Biden with Lutsenko and Ukrainian politicians. One possible reason was the publication in The New York Times, which said that Trump's lawyer was trying to get a foreign government to investigate one of Trump's main opponents in the US presidential election in 2020. Giuliani himself explained the cancellation of the visit by saying that he could “find himself in a group of people who are enemies of the president, and in some cases enemies of the United States.”

“There was a serious fear that the new [Ukrainian] president would be surrounded, literally, by the enemies of the president [of the United States] and people who - at least in one case - are clearly corrupt and involved in this scheme,” he said on Fox TV News.

Biden also called the statements of Giuliani "personal attacks."

“I can't remember a single attorney representing the president who consulted with the president and decided to travel overseas to get the government, counting on US generosity, to investigate something that everyone knows never happened,” Biden said.

Biden declined to comment further. Giuliani did not respond to a request for comment.

From his office in Kiev, Lutsenko said that Giuliani sent him an invitation for an audience in New York at the end of last year. For two days, while the meeting lasted, they talked about the Ukrainian political situation and the fight against corruption. Giuliani asked him about the investigation of the case against the owner of Burisma Nikolay Zlochevsky, and also about whether the US ambassador to Ukraine Marie Yovanovitch was “disloyal to President Trump.” In February, they met again in Poland, where Giuliani delivered a speech at a rally against Tehran on the eve of the US summit on Iran.

As for the US ambassador to Ukraine Marie Yovanovitch, Lutsenko told Giuliani that his relations with the ambassador were not friendly enough to express his opinion about Trump.

As part of a five-year investigation, the Prosecutor General's Office of Ukraine found out whether the deal Kurchenko on the purchase of an oil storage terminal in southern Ukraine helped Zlochevsky in November 2013 launder money. According to Lutsenko, the transaction took place several months before Hunter Biden joined the board of directors of Burisma.

“Biden definitely didn't participate,” Lutsenko said. "We have no reason to believe that there have been any violations since 2014."

According to the Prosecutor General, there is no additional investigation into Zlochevsky and Burisma.

"Notice of Suspicion"

According to Lutsenko, prosecutors sent Zlochevsky a "notice of suspicion" and asked him to appear for questioning in the Kurchenko case, but he never appeared. Zlochevsky did not respond to requests for comments sent via Burisma, and his lawyer declined to comment.

The Attorney General stressed that the current investigation "in no way" concerns Burisma.

The sale of the Kurchenko business by Zlochevsky was part of an investigation conducted by the UK Anti-Fraud Office in 2014. He was closed after the Ukrainian prosecutors did not provide information for the promotion of the case and stopped their own investigation of the case. Another investigation of unpaid taxes by Burisma was conducted in 2016 year.

“All cases against Burisma were closed,” Lutsenko said. “I don't see any wrongdoing among foreigners who worked for Burisma in Ukraine.”

Lutsenko's future as attorney general - a job he says he would like to keep - is uncertain. Zelenskiy, Ukraine's new president, will be sworn in on May 20 and has pledged to appoint a new prosecutor general.
