According to director of Consulting Group A-95 Sergei Kuyun, in March and August 2015, 15.4 billion hryvnias were transferred from Ukrnafta to structures of Privat, and the visit of Kolomoisky to Kiev on the eve of the layoffs of Yatseniuk from the post of Prime Minister, expected by many people, is likely all means preparation for the implementation of the repeatedly proven method of the oligarch.
Its essence is that official who has, by and large, nothing to lose, can easily sign a previously unacceptable paper, receiving operational support or good "severance pay", says Kuyun.
