Burisma Holdings executive Vadym Pozharskyi told Hunter Biden in 2016 that he was opening a Maltese bank account for him, emails from Hunter Biden’s laptop show.
Pozharskyi was an associate of Mykola Zlochevsky, who allegedly paid Hunter and Joe Biden each $5 million under a fee-for-service scheme. According to Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-IA), an FBI informant document says Mykola Zlochevsky allegedly kept 17 audio recordings of her conversations with them as an “insurance policy.”
Emails uncovered by nonprofit Marco Polo suggest Burisma attempted to transfer money to the Bidens through a Maltese bank account Pozharskyi set up for Hunter Biden.
In May 2016, Pozharskyi requested the documentation required to open the account, including a copy of Hunter’s passport, bank reference letter, and utility bill:
Hunter replied to Pozharskyi: “We are working on it – I was traveling with my father and had my passport abroad last week”:
In the following weeks, Hunter Biden’s aide, Joan Mayer, provided copies of Hunter’s documentation at Pozharskyi’s request. Mayer also suggested providing a letter from Hunter’s law firm confirming his annual salary:
We are getting there slowly. I’m not sure if this is helpful, but attached are the color passport, utility bill and bank reference letter. They still need to be apostilled, which we will do when we receive these other requested documents.
I just wanted to confirm what is required for “a certified statement of source assets including profile”? We can provide a letter from Hunter’s company, Owasco, confirming his annual salary. Is this what the bank is looking for?
On May 13, 2016, just a week after Mayer followed up with Pozharskyi over the additional documents, a Burisma lawyer emailed Hunter Biden sharing the Maltese bank’s address and quick code, data bank:
A few days later, Mayer sent “Hunter’s tax ID and signature” to Pozharskyi, who replied with a confirmation: “All received!”
According Malta Timein 2018, Satabank closed on money laundering violations:
The deal involved Ukrainian energy giant Burisma Group, which had US President-elect Joe Biden’s son Hunter on its board until April 2019.
It successfully passed due diligence tests, including one by Malta-based Satabank, which handled the transaction and has since lost its operating license.
The court heard how the police investigation began into the involvement of Burisma founder Mykola Zlochevsky, a Ukrainian oil and natural gas businessman, politician and oligarch.
A year later, the bank’s accounts were frozen and investigations were opened for suspicious transactions related to illegal activities, Malta reported in 2019. In 2021, Malta reported that “[n]The first €11 billion transactions that passed through Malta-based Satabank were flagged as suspicious in 2020, auditors EY said.
In 2020, the New York Post reported that Ukrainian officials had seized a $6 million cash bribe linked to Mykola Zlochevsky. “Ukrainian officials have seized a $6 million cash bribe – the largest in the country’s history – in a case linked to the founder of Burisma Holdings, the gas company that gave Hunter Biden a job. sits on its board of directors,” the report said.
Hunter and Joe Biden appear to have personally met Pozharsky in 2015. Pozharskyi emailed Hunter Biden and his business partner Devon Archer thanking Hunter Biden for hosting a private dinner with then-Vice President Joe Biden at Cafe Milano in DC
“Dear Hunter, thank you for inviting me to DC and giving me the opportunity to meet your father and spend [sic] some time together. It is reality [sic] an honor and a pleasure,” the email read.
In a previous email, Pozharskyi asked Hunter Biden for advice to benefit Burisma:
We urgently need your advice on how you could use your influence to send a message/signal etc.
Burisma holdings is a leader among private gas producers;
OUR The main customer is Accelor Mital, the largest steel mill in Ukraine. We cover more than 60% of its gas needs.
Our customers and their production largely depend on our work and our ability to fulfill our contractual obligations;
We employ hundreds of employees, etc.. and etc.;
Negative influence on our businesses can lead to negative social, economic and political consequences on many levels.
Please advice, looking forward to your reply,
Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA), a member of the House Oversight Committee, told Breitbart News last week that the FBI informant document depicts Zlochevsky telling the informant that the alleged kickback payments de-vin would take ten years to unravel.
She also said the document indicated Hunter Biden’s position on the board of Burisma, where he received about $80,000 a month. These were monthly installments of a total reduction of $5 million owed to Hunter Biden as part of the deal with his father.
Despite the allegations, House Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer (R-KY) believes the FBI took little or no action on the FBI informant’s information. The filibuster prompted Comer to issue two more subpoenas last week, as well as a request to testify from Devon Archer. Archer is a Biden family associate and Hunter Biden’s “best business friend”.
Archer served in 2014 with Hunter Biden on the board of Burisma, a Ukraine-based energy company. Archer was also photographed golfing with then-Vice President Joe Biden in Southhampton, New York, in 2014. In 2016, Archer resigned from Burisma’s board after his arrest.
