Two Additional Top Ukrainiain Officials Arrested- in showy fashion

 The next act in Ukraine. Following after  Kolomoisky: Quit, Resigned, Fired, Reigned in by Kiev? Maybe something else? We now have some very show stopping arrests

Serhiy Bochkovsky is arrested

with cameras rolling

Two top Ukrainian officials have been arrested on corruption charges and led away in handcuffs from a televised cabinet meeting as government ministers looked on.
Police detained Sergiy Bochkovsky, director of Ukraine's emergency services ministry, and his deputy Vasyl Stoyetsky, in full glare of journalists and photographers, accusing them of "high-level" corruption.

Arrested on Live Television?
Ukrainian police walked into a nationally televised meeting of the country's cabinet of ministers in Kiev on Wednesday, and with cameras rolling, slapped cuffs on the chief and deputy chief of the emergencies services ministry.
Anton Heraschenko, an advisor to Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko, said Serhiy Bochkovsky, head of the State Service of Emergency Situations of Ukraine, and his deputy Vasily Stoyetskoho, are suspected of stealing 15 to 20% of cash that the state paid for fuel, including for ambulances in eastern Ukraine, where government forces are fighting Russian-backed separatists.
;The move was clearly staged for maximum effect to prove to the West that Kiev is making much-needed strides in reforming its government.
Were these two siphoning off Kolomoisky's profits? It is after all..
 " Mr. Kolomoisky has effectively controlled Ukrnafta and Ukrtransnafta, according to officials and lawmakers. This enabled him to push aside competitors and have oil sent to a processing plant that he controls, the officials and lawmakers said.

Mr. Kolomoisky says he shares control of the companies with the state and is trying to keep them operating”"

Obviously I don't buy the fighting corruption meme being presented by Kiev. Kiev is corruption from top to bottom, side to side, inside and out.  Oligarch wars? Who has more control in the corrupt state aparatus?


  1. Interesting development, Penny. Apparently the Kiev government is still rife with Russian "spys and informants". Could that have been what this was all about? It was strange that when Kolomoisky went into his tantrum/rant in front of the Ukrtransnafta building the other day...he spoke Russian...even when questions were asked by journalists in Ukrainian. I don't know...maybe Kolomoisky is too close to Russia for the Western handlers in Kiev...was that Yats in the background in the last frame of the video?


    1. Hi greencrow- :)
      It's unclear at the moment, but, I suspect this has more to do with Kolomoisky solidifying his hold on Ukraine
      I'll watch again to see if it was Yats, I hadn't noticed.

    2. I would rather (cautiously) think that Ihor was "removed" from the scene. He is more of en embarrassment. His chutzpah exposed to glaringly the "Khazar" Kosher Nostra connections. The take over of Ukraine by the Kosher Nostra shouldn't have been so obvious. Remember that in Jan. 2104 Filatov and Korban fled to Israel, where they directed the Maidan from. Upon their return Korban was appointed the deputy of Kolomoisky. Now he resigned as well, living the place for Filatov, it's true.
      Russians know that the downing of MH17 was the feat of Kolomoisky and perhaps they intend, or just signaled that they would expose publicly K. (who was anyway indicted by a Russian Court for war crimes and put on an international wanted list (together with Avakov who now went over to Poroshenko). Or, that the Commission of Inquiry into the causes of the shooting of MH17 cannot dither any longer (for sure they tried every trick in the book to cover up this).
      Kolo became a liability. Remember Robert Maxwell?

    3. Hey WizOz, I do not recall Robert Maxwell?
      And I didn't realise anyone was running Maidan from Israel- I don't doubt it, but, wasn't aware of it

    4. Here is an article from NYT one year ago:

      "DNEPROPETROVSK, Ukraine — As violence flared late last month in Kiev after Parliament approved a draconian law against dissent, two of the richest men in this industrial city 300 miles to the east of the Ukrainian capital met in an expensive Italian restaurant that they own and made a fateful decision.
      The men, Hennadiy Korban and his partner Borys Filatov, decided to remove advertising videos featuring glamorous models from a large outdoor screen at an upscale shopping mall called Passage and replace them with a live broadcast of raucous antigovernment protests at Independence Square in Kiev....
      Fearing arrest, Mr. Korban and Mr. Filatov fled Ukraine for Israel last week. A Dnepropetrovsk judge ordered on Jan. 29 that Mr. Korban be detained and interrogated as a witness in connection with a previously dormant investigation of a 2012 murder....
      “We want to live in Europe, not in an outpost of the Russian empire,” added Mr. Korban, 43, speaking by phone from Israel....
      But their defection has already lifted the spirits of President Yanukovych’s opponents. “This is an absolutely positive sign for us,” said Pavlo Khazan, a local environmentalist and antigovernment activist who has helped organize rallies in support of pro-Europe protesters in Kiev. “It shows that this corrupt system is starting to crack.”
      I might have read to much into.

      "Robert Maxwell was born Ján Ludvík Hyman Binyamin Hoch into a poor] Yiddish-speaking Orthodox Jewish family in the small town of Slatinské Doly (now Solotvino, Ukraine), in the easternmost province of (pre-World War II) Czechoslovakia....

      "Maxwell's contacts with Czech anti-Stalinist Communist leaders in 1948 as crucial to the Czech decision to arm Israel in the 1948 Arab–Israeli War that year. Czech military assistance was both unique and crucial for the fledgling state as it battled for its existence. It was Maxwell's covert help in smuggling aircraft parts into Israel that led to the country having air supremacy during their 1948 War of Independence. Jewish leaders were also grateful for Maxwell's intervention and material help in securing the freedom and immigration between 1988–1991 of over one million Russian Jews through his friendship with Mikhail Gorbachev....
      "in 1986 Maxwell had told the Israeli Embassy in London that Mordechai Vanunu had given information about Israel's nuclear capability to The Sunday Times, then to the Daily Mirror. Vanunu was subsequently kidnapped by Mossad and smuggled to Israel, convicted of treason and imprisoned for 18 years".
      Miraculously he became a media mogul, a billionaire. He " had used hundreds of millions of pounds from his companies' pension funds to shore up the shares of the Mirror Group, to save his companies from bankruptcy. Eventually, the pension funds were replenished with monies from investment banks Shearson Lehman and Goldman Sachs, as well as the British government". It seems rather that the money went to finance the "Russian Revolution", before Soros took over.
      On 5 November 1991 Maxwell was presumed to have fallen overboard from the vessel which was cruising off the Canary Islands. "Although three pathologists had been unable to agree on the cause of his death at the inquest", " Murder was ruled out by the judge and, in effect, so was suicide"! At the time there was a heated debate whether it was the Mossad or the KGB!
      He was buried on the Mount of Olives in Jerusalem, a honor reserved to people who rendered egregious services to Israel. From there they would be the first to see the Messiah when he would come!

  2. "The United States is already supplying weapons there. For instance, in Debaltsevo we saw US ammunition. That’s a lethal weapon," he told a news briefing. "NATO planes land at the airports of Dnipropetrovsk, Zaporizhia and Kharkiv every day." In case the situation gets worse, Zakharchenko said, the Ukrainian forces may mount attacks in three directions - south, north-western and in the area of Debaltsevo to cut the Donetsk Republic away from the Luhansk Republic.

    1. ""The United States is already supplying weapons there. For instance, in Debaltsevo we saw US ammunition. That’s a lethal weapon,"

      and right into the hands of Kolomoisky's neo nazi battalions
      interesting about cutting of Donetsk and Luhansk- hopefully that does not happen

    2. Turkey shells Syria and has drone t:aken ot trying to secure land routes for rebels to homes?

      Syrian rebels tale a border town by jordan

      Us starts bombing tikrit as the talking campaign against Iran troops in iraq goes full tilt. Will Iranian troops be on the receiving end? Iranian generals on the ground have been very clear as to who they believe are behind isis

      Saudi goaded into Yemen action as a defensive move just as the northern border goes hot?

      One might reasonably conclude that the twitter office opening in dubai may be indicative of the real target

    3. hey anon
      didn't know Turkey was shelling Syria at this time
      I haven't been able to keep an eye on Syria the past few days

      as for the twitter office in dubai, loads of social media crap at play in yemen- but, will it be turned on Saudi Arabia- eventually
      certainly if Israel has it's way

  3. are suspected of stealing 15 to 20% of cash that the state paid for fuel.

    No wonder they were arrested they should have figured out how to steal all of the money and moved out of Country. They deserve to be arrested for being dumb.

    Anon, thanks for the link

    1. "They deserve to be arrested for being dumb"
      LOL, good one jo

  4. Ok did anyone beside me think the whole arrest thing looked staged
    The two men arrested were virtually emotionless- weird

    1. I do think that it WAS staged.

    2. glad I wasn't alone- jo thought so too, so, yah, staged

  5. btw- MofA is back- I tried to leave two comments there- and they are both no shows-
    b's information wrt the Yemen government is incorrect- and I don't know if it's worth bothering with that place at all?

    I don't have the time, really. And perhaps b doesn't want to correct the incorrect info? I simply don't know? Anyway, it's his show over there

    1. What part seemed odd to you, I couldn't put my figure on why it was not right.

      The arrest, well I'm under the impression that everything coming out there is staged just like isis. Hollyweird anyone?

    2. Hi jo, the whole thing seems so staged
      No one in the entire room appears shocked- No sounds indicating surprise
      The heavier guy is totally emotionless- no surprise, no anger, nothing and then once cuffed him and the 'cop' pose for photos?
      What the heck is that ?!
      It looks very, very off.

  6. All politics in all western controlled countries is theatre. One always has to ask the question, "why am I seeing this; why am I reading this? The camera was propositioned to film the arresting officers. My guess it was preplanned if not rehearsed!
