Journalists with a crook from the past was found by accident – he recently came from Israel. An interview with him offered to write businessman Oleksandr Shpak, who complained about seized by prosecutors he’s got a huge amount of money. The Prosecutor’s office confirmed the search at the specified address, but explained that they had conducted investigative actions not against Shpak, and against Sergey Lekar, Deputy head of MIA Yanukovych times.

But Shpak asserts that the money belongs to him and partners from Israel, including Uffe. A former investigator Ubopa Anatoly Fesun, which investigated the activities of a businessman, believes his return to Ukraine is not accidental. “Things are not finished, they were never closed. I think he could not appear. It was fixed. His task was brain. He’s the brain of it all. He created,” says the former policeman, who still calls the cooperative “mercury” mafia structure and compare with the Italian “kozanostra” and Asian “triads”.
