He's the third richest person in Ukraine and according to Forbes the 377th richest in the world. His main assets are in banking and aviation, and, inevitably, he owns a high profile football club... presumably to gain some street cred with the hoi polloi. Interestingly, since 2010 rumors where circulating that Kolomoiskyi assets were coming under pressure from the authorities.
* The new governor of Donetsk Region is Sergey Taruta, who is estimated to be worth around $2 billion, putting him among the top-10 wealthiest people in Ukraine. He heads ISD, one of the biggest mining and smelting companies in the world, and also own Donetsk-based Metallurg Football Club. I'm unable to definitively determine his ethnicity but based on his looks, the way he got his money and the company he keeps I can make a reasonable guess.
* Victor Pinchuk is the son-of-law of former President Leonid Kuchma (Kuchma gained office through the prodigious efforts of one George Soros.) Pinchuk is the owner of several oil, gas and energy import/export companies. He also owns the nation's largest steel mill and a chain of banks. His group has very strong ties with other Jewish organisations in Ukraine, as well as in the U.S. and Israel. He is a member of the Ukrainian Parliament and one of the leaders of the Ukrainian Labour Party (sic).
* Vadim Rabinovich is a citizen of Israel. In 1980 he was charged in Ukraine with stealing state property and spent 9 months in a jail. In 1984 he was arrested again and sentenced to 14 years in prison for his black market activities . He was released in 1990. In 1993 he became a representative of the Austrian company "Nordex" in Ukraine. The company somehow received exclusive rights to sell Russian oil from president Kuchma. In 1997 Rabinovich became president of the All-Ukrainian Jewish Congress, and in 1999 he was elected head of the United Jewish Community of Ukraine. That same year the Associated Press estimated his wealth as $1 billion. Rabinovich owns Central Europe Media Enterprises, which controls television stations in seven East European countries.
* Victor Medvedchuk was formerly Leonid Kuchma's Chief of Staff. The Medvedchuk-Surkis cabal controls Ukraine's energy sector (8 regional energy companies), oil and gas market, alcohol and sugar production, shipbuilding, and athletic organizations. He is a member of the Ukrainian Parliament, and a leader in the Social Democratic party of Ukraine (SDPU). I'm assuming he's Jewish based on his background and this hagiography in Jewish World Review.
* Gregory Surkis, also Jewish, is CEO of Slavutich, a company that controls several huge energy companies (KirovogradEnergo, PoltavEnergo, etc). He also owns a soccer team, the prestigious Dynamo-Kiev, and is a president of the Professional Soccer League. He too is a member of the Ukrainian Parliament.
These appointments are hardly surprising given that the new Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk is also one of the tribe. Earlier Uzhgorod Mayor Sergey Ratushniak described him as the “Impudent Jew Yatsenyuk who was successfully serving thieves, who are at power in Ukraine, and using criminal money to plow ahead towards Ukraine’s presidency."
No wonder Victoria Nuland and hubby Robert Kagan were such enthusiastic supporters of the coup.
Professor Vasyl Yaremenko, director of the Institute of Culturological and Ethnopolitical research at Kiev State University reviewed the ownership of the country's TV and other media outlets and warned:
"Ukrainians need to know that the mass media is completely in the hands of Jews, and everything that we watch or read is the product of Jewish ideology..."
Comprehensive details of this ownership are provided here. (http://iamthewitness.com/Ukraine.html)
Professor Yaremenko points out that out of the 400+ members of the Ukrainian Parliament, 136 (possibly 158) are Jews. That is more than in the Israeli Knesset. Who voted for them, asks professor Yaremenko. Who paid for costly election campaigns? — 90% of Ukrainian banks, according to him, are owned by Jews.
The newspaper that published these findings was closed down for, you've guessed it, 'hate speech'.
I'm sure all of this brings back fond memories of the 1930s to older Ukrainians.
