Leonid Kuchma   Letter 22   22-Jun-2001   What do your stolen billions buy?
"All talk of your being awarded a Nobel Prize has fallen silent." Lubomyr Prytulak


        22 June 2001


Leonid Kuchma, President
vul. Bankivska 11
Kyiv, 252005
Ukraine


Leonid Kuchma:

RFE/RL reported on 12 June 2001 that "Last week, Ukrainian lawmaker Hryhoriy Omelchenko alleged that Kuchma's former bodyguard Mykola Melnychenko has been given special witness status in the U.S. after he passed to the U.S. authorities audio recordings suggesting that no less than $1 billion dollars has been deposited into U.S. bank accounts that either belong to or are controlled by Kuchma."

Of course we understand that your one billion dollars in U.S. banks does not constitute your total assets you possibly have comparable holdings in Ukraine, in Switzerland, and who knows where else.

For the sake of future politicians who succeed you in governing Ukraine, and who may be tempted to steal as much money as you have stolen, it would be valuable for you to inform them of what these stolen billions have been able to purchase for you.  For example:

Your answers to these questions would be valuable for future leaders of Ukraine to read, as then they would know better whether the path that you have chosen for yourself is one that they should be desirous of following.
