Security service investigates economic entities incorporated in LUKOIL and VETEK for financing terrorism


The Security Service of Ukraine is investigating whether Russia's LUKOIL and Ukraine's VETEK have violated current legislation regulating imports of fuel sold in Ukraine, and if they subsequently used the resulting revenues to finance the self-proclaimed republics in Donbas (DPR and LPR).

"Investigators have found that in 2013 and 2014 top officials from LUKOIL have arranged smuggling through sea terminals in Feodosia, Kherson, Izmail, Mykolaiv and Odesa and through the checkpoints on our western border and across the border with Belarus in contravention of customs control procedures, through the use of controlled economic entities (OAO LUKOIL, LUKOIL-Ukraine, Odesa oil refinery, the First Fuel Company, etc.) leading to the sale of over 2 million tonnes of fuel worth $2 billion," Markiyan Lubkivsky, an adviser to the Security Service chief, wrote on Facebook
