A Russian newspaper revealed the size of Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky’s investments in Russia, which were previously revealed at the beginning of 2019 by Ukrainian journalists.
According to the Russian newspaper “Komsomolskaya Pravda” it turned out that there are simultaneously three Russian companies selling films and series to our TV channels “Daddy” and “Matchmakers”), which were created by the founder of “Kvartal 95 Studio” Volodymyr Oleksandrovich Zelensky, the current Ukrainian president.
Moreover, these three companies were founded by the Cypriot company Green Family Ltd, which Ukrainian journalists also called Zelensky.
It was noted that from 2014 to 2017, Zelensky’s companies earned about 350 million hryvnia (about $12 million). With taxes paid in Russia of course.
When Ukrainian journalists revealed this information in press investigations, Zelensky did not deny what was stated in it, but the “servant of the people,” as he calls himself and his party, justified this information by saying: “How can I close these companies? There is a contract until 2021. From 2011. Until 2021, we receive money from it (payment for the use of copyright). We receive this money. What should we do? We close? We give the Russians our money? Of course not.”
In addition, Zelensky owns a house worth 100 million Russian rubles (nearly $1 million) in Crimea, which is under Russian control and which Russia wants Kyiv to recognize as a Russian region.
