CAMPAIGNERS CALL FOR PROBE INTO HOW UKRAINIAN OLIGARCH FIGHTING £1.4BILLION FRAUD CLAIMS WAS GIVEN ‘GOLDEN VISA’ FOR UK

The Evening Standard on 10th September reported that Gennadiy Bogolyubov was also granted British citizenship after moving to the UK in 2009 and lived in a mansion on Belgrave Square while helping to run his country’s biggest bank.  He is now embroiled in High Court litigation in which he and another Ukrainian tycoon — Igor Kolomoisky — are accused by the bank of siphoning off vast sums through a complex string of financial transactions which lawyers believe were carried out by algorithm.  3 English companies were among the hundreds used in what was described in court as a “fraud of byzantine complexity”.
