SBU accuses Nusenkis’ Makiyivkoks, Yasynivsky coke plants of cooperating with terrorists


The Ukrainian Security Service (SBU) has stated that the Makiyivkoks and Yasynivsky coke chemical plants (both based in Donetsk region), belonging to Russian citizen Viktor Nusenkis, who is a member of former president Viktor Yanukovych’s inner circle, have come under the control of the terrorist organization Donetsk People’s Republic (DPR).

«The SBU exposed and eliminated another scheme of financing the DPR through the illegal export of coke products. Products were manufactured at two enterprises controlled by terrorists, namely CJSC Makiyivkoks and OJSC Yasynivsky coke chemical plant,» reads a report on the SBU’s website.

The intelligence agency stated that the last batch of coke of 1,000 tonnes was detained by its employees at a seaport. SBU investigators initiated criminal proceedings over the financing terrorist organizations, and operative-investigative activities are being carried out.

«The management of these enterprises maintains close relations with the self-proclaimed prime minister of the terrorist organization DPR Zakharchenko. Coke plants were among the first that carried out re-registration and received the certificates of the so called DPR,» the SBU’s press service said.
