Eric, thank you for the communication below.
It's good to have John on board with us in our efforts for Kiev trip and issue.
I am kindly expecting from HB and Devon to confirm as to our action plan with BS.
As to the visas issue, I realize that we will have time to discuss the strategy to solve the matter as our crisis management action plan proceeds.

Please the below email and attachments from John Sandweg.  He is going to confirm that Nikolai’s wife and daughter are in the same situation.

John recommends that Nikolai reapply for his visa but that we wait until his legal status in Ukraine has been resolved as the reapplication may require Nikolai to go to the Embassy in Kiev personally.  He does feel that since the original cancelation occurred in March of 2014 it is solely related to the political issues associated with his service in the cabinet and not anything to do with him personally that the reapplication may not be a difficult process.

In any event, we should discuss timing as part of the overall strategy regarding not only the visa but also the legal and PR issues that Blue Star will be handling.

John also said that he’d be happy to go to Ukraine if the group feels it makes sense and his presence will be helpful.

Let us know if you have any questions.

Subject: Visa Denial


Attached is a short report outlining why the visa was cancelled.

I realize we previously told you that a search of Department of Homeland Security and Customs databases did not reveal any prohibitions on Mr. Zlochevskyi ability to enter the United States.  Unfortunately, after receiving the initial report, I suspected that the individual I asked to run the search only queried DHS/Customs databases and not State Department databases.  As such, I asked another individual to query both databases.  This search revealed the cancellation of the visa and the legal basis for the cancellation.

The good news is that there has been no application of an immigration bar - meaning the client is able to re-apply and is not currently subject to any legal prohibitions on obtaining a visa.  That said, the reason State cancels visas in situations like this is to force the visa holder to come into the embassy/consulate and answer questions related to the issues that are concerning State.  As we discussed I do not recommend that the client make any effort to obtain a new visa until the other matters are resolved.

Let me know if you have any questions or concerns.
