The United States has imposed sanctions on former Ukrainian official Igor Kolomoisky for his involvement in corruption, US Secretary of State Anthony Blinken said in a statement today.
According to Blinken statements issued by the State Department, sanctions are being taken against "oligarch and former Ukrainian official Igor Kolomoisky" for his involvement in large-scale corruption. As governor of the Depropetrovsk region in 2014-2015, Kolomoisky was quoted in the statement as saying, "he was involved in acts of corruption that undermined public confidence in Ukraine's democratic institutions of government," and used "politics influence and official powers ”to reap personal benefits.
"While this definition is based on acts committed during his tenure, I also want to express my concern about Kolomoisky's ongoing and ongoing efforts to undermine Ukraine's democratic processes and institutions, which pose a serious threat to the "her future," said US Secretary of State Anthony Blinken in a written statement.
According to the statement, the sanctions are not only against Kolomoisky but also against his wife Irina, Angelica's daughter and son Grigory (his son is mentioned in the text of the announcement as Israel Svi Kolomoisky). The US government's sanctions mean in practice that Kolomoisky and his family are "deprived of the right to enter the United States," Blinken said in a statement.
