OREANDA-NEWSFormer US Vice President Joe Biden received $ 900 thousand from the Ukrainian company Burisma Holdings for lobbying activities, said Ukrainian MP Andrei Dergach, Ukrainian media reported. “Money in the amount of $ 900 thousand was transferred to the account of the American company Rosemont Seneca Partners, which is connected, according to open sources, including The New York Times, with Biden. The purpose of the payment is payment for consulting services”, the deputy said.

At a press conference in Kiev, he presented documents that, in his words, describe the mechanism for receiving funds by Biden Sr. The people's deputy said that he received these materials from investigative journalists. The deputy also claims that Burisma paid at least $ 16.5 million to the head of the board of independent directors of the company Alan Upper and independent directors Devon Archen, Alexander Kwasniewski and the son of former US vice president Hunter Biden.

In January 2018, Biden Sr. said that he had given Poroshenko an ultimatum - either the prosecutor was fired, or Ukraine wasn't receiving a $ 1 billion loan from the United States.
