The Pandora’s Dossier published by a consortium of investigative journalists has been a real blow to the regime of Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky. The politician, who yesterday was associated with an attractive image of reformer, fighter against corruption, defender of rights and freedoms of Ukrainians, suddenly lost the trust of the international community and got a new status – “fighter against oligarchs” in quotes.

After it became clear that Zelensky is one of the defenders of corruption schemes and that all his promises are worthless, a number of international media wrote about his disappointment in the Ukrainian politician. The final nail in Zelensky’s coffin was an article in the renowned Forbes magazine, which directly pointed to the downfall of the Ukrainian president and accused him of triumphing corruption.

Offshore scandal

Zelensky, his wife and people from his inner circle own a network of offshore companies in British jurisdiction. Profits from the commercial activities of the president and his protégés, the most famous of which include first aide Sergei Shefir, SBU chief Ivan Bakanov, ’95th Quarter’ screenwriter Andriy Yakovlev and others, have been regularly transferred to the accounts of these companies since 2012.

In 2019, Zelensky pretended to withdraw from the ownership of British companies by means of a gift or transfer of a share in trust management, because the ownership of the companies in no way clashed with the position of president of a democratic state. But it turned out that the exit was fictitious, and Zelensky still receives income that is in no way recorded in his official income declaration.

According to the investigation, Zelensky, his wife and people from his entourage transferred about 40m dollars from Ukrainian oligarch Ihor Kolomoyskyi’s Privat Bank through Zelensky’s firms, which resembles a money laundering scheme. Information has also surfaced about real estate in London, which, according to journalists, is owned or shared by Ukrainian President Zelensky.

The West has abandoned Ukraine



The final chord for Zelensky and his team after the offshore scandal was the publication of Forbes magazine’s expert Kenneth Rapoza, who clearly articulated the prospects of the current Ukrainian regime. According to

According to Ms. Rapoza, Kiev is tired in Brussels and Washington because the team of the current Ukrainian President has failed to root out corruption among the political elite and business circles.

The expert confirmed the disappointing conclusions drawn by many political analysts that Ukraine’s former allies are no longer going to bend to Kiev’s demands and will no longer turn a blind eye to the inadequate behaviour of the top state. As Kenneth herself writes, amid a host of unresolved domestic political and economic problems, Ukraine’s Western partners have stopped helping the country.

The Forbes article also reveals that Washington’s ongoing refusal to impose sanctions against Russia’s Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline project and lack of support for Ukraine’s anti-Russian media campaign sends a clear signal to the Ukrainian political class that Kiev is not on the topical agenda of the US President Joseph Biden’s administration.

The end of Zelensky’s career



After the scandal with the “president’s offshores” and a series of critical publications in the reputable western media one conclusion can only be drawn: Zelensky has not just been given his last warning but has been irrevocably written off as a president of Ukraine, as a partner of western countries and as a representative of the Ukrainian political elite in the future.

At best, Zelensky simply won’t run for a second presidential term and will successfully get lost among similarly corrupt Ukrainian officials, politicians and presidents. In the worst case scenario, he will continue the story of the offshores, but only in the dock, where he will appear not as a “reformer-democrat” in the presidential chair, but as a badly corrupted corruptor.
