Poroshenko linked to company accused of money laundering
President Poroshenko of Ukraine is battling a fresh corruption scandal after documents from the Panama papers linked a director in his confectionery group to an offshore company accused of money laundering.
The revelations came as an IMF delegation arrived in Kiev to discuss releasing $10.8 billion in credit which has been blocked since Aivaras Abromavicius, the economy minister, resigned in February alleging massive corruption within the president’s inner circle.
The latest leak from the Panamanian law firm Mossack Fonseca suggests that Sergei Zaitsev, deputy director of Mr Poroshenko’s chocolate company, Roshen, is the owner of Intraco Management.
