“One of the richest oligarchs in Ukraine, whose name has been brought to the fore in the saga of the dispossession of assets, is under investigation by a grand jury for laundering hundreds of millions dollars in real estate transactions in the United States, “the report said.
The publication recalls that billionaire Igor Kolomoisky has also been accused by Ukrainian regulators of organizing an illegal scheme to withdraw money from the country’s largest bank, including real estate in the United States.

The publication calls the Cleveland jury’s investigation “the United States’ rare efforts against an influential oligarch” to track his funds he has spent through correspondent banks in the United States.
