On the President’s website, the decree on the official release of First Deputy Foreign Service Director Sergei Semochkо was published.
“To release Serhii A. Semochkо from the post of First Deputy Head of the Foreign Intelligence Service of Ukraine,” is said on the site of the president. The decree of Petro Poroshenko dated April 12, which he stated during the debate on the NSC “Olympic”.
Recall that the National Anti-Corruption Bureau instituted a criminal case against Semochkо after the publication of a journalistic investigation. The journalists of Our Money program published a story on October 1 stating that the family of Semochkо owns houses near Kyiv at a total cost of 8 million USD, and his closest relatives have Russian passports. The analysis of the family income of Semochkо for the last eight years shows that they should not have enough money for one of the houses. The journalists of Our Money also said that Semochkо was involved in a shortage of dialysis drugs, which they believed was probably the result of the demand from the SBU for putting pressure on pharmacological companies.
