Dear Hunter and Devon,

 

Following our talks during the visit to the Como Lake and our further discussions, I would like to bring the following situation to your attention.

 

As previously pointed out on a number of occasions, the representatives of new authorities in power tend to quite aggressively approach N. Z. unofficially with the aim to obtain cash from him. Initially, it was done by the representatives of Svoboda party and the Ministry of Internal Affairs. These so called unofficial "communications" would entail blackmailing: in case we don't cooperate i.e. provide money in cash the gaz production business of N.Z. would be stopped, destroyed etc…

 

It’s important to note that Svoboda party is represented in the government by the General Prosecutor and by Minister of Ecology and Natural Resources Of Ukraine. The last organ together with the State Geological and Subsurface Survey of Ukraine, which is directly subordinated to the Ministry of Ecology and Natural Resources of Ukraine, are principal regulators in the area of issuing licenses for natural resources and control.

 

After unsuccessful attempts to receive funds from our side, they proceeded with concrete actions.

 

So far we got information (through unofficial channels) that one or more pretrial proceedings were initiated by the Ministry of Internal Affairs with regrad to Burima Holdings companies that are heavily engaged in gas production and happen to be our Holdings' key companies.

 

The Ministry of Internal Affairs contacted the Ministry of  Ecology and Natural Resources and the State Geological and Subsurface Survey of Ukraine to obtain all documents concerning licenses issued since 2006 until now to the companies of our Holding.

 

Apart from that, they would unofficially approach our partnres, clients, suppliers trying to intimidate them to stop working with our companies.

 

These are typical instruments to destabilize business.

 

We urgently need your advice on how you could use your influence to convey a message / signal, etc .to stop what we consider to be politically motivated actions bearing in mind the following:

 

Burisma holdings is a leader among private gas producers;

Our primary client is Accelor Mital- Ukraine's biggest metal steel plant. We cover more thet 60% of its gas needs.

Our clients and their production are largely dependant on our work and our ability to perfom our contractual obligations;

We employ hundreds of employees etc. and etc.;

Negative influence on our companies may result in multy-level negative social, econimical and political consequnces.

 

Please advice, looking forward for your reply,

 

Vadym Pozharskyi
