About it during interrogation on a court session on the case of high treason Viktor Yanukovych said the former state Duma Deputy Ilya Ponomarev, reports the correspondent of UNN.

“I confirm that it was a bribery (receiving Yanukovych’s billion — ed.). I was told by friends working in the government of the Russian Federation, specifically Igor Shuvalov that they were tasked with the financial interest of the representatives of Yanukovych’s family. Russia was a view that Ukraine is governed by a conglomerate of people, which can be linked by family ties, not politically. Therefore it was necessary to create conditions so that the members of this family could make a profit. From the sale of bonds profit not a country, and those who buy them for themselves. The essence of the transaction was to directly transfer the money to the state budget of Ukraine or Russia, and allow specific individuals, in this case by the son of Yanukovych Alexander enriched in the stock market”, — said Ponomarev.
