South Front reports….
On January 11th, the United States Treasury sanctioned several Ukrainian individuals and media for revealing corruption in the Ukrainian government and against US President-elect Joe Biden and his son Hunter.
These were accused of being “Russia-linked actors” and they were simply doing Moscow’s bidding, by revealing the truth.
“Russian disinformation campaigns targeting American citizens are a threat to our democracy,” Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said.
The U.S. Treasury Department accused the seven individuals and four entities of involvement in a Russia-linked foreign influence network associated with Ukrainian parliamentarian Andriy Derkach. The pro-Russian lawmaker was hit with sanctions by the U.S. government in September over accusations he tried to interfere in the 2020 U.S. election won by Biden.
The action freezes any U.S. assets of those blacklisted and generally bars Americans from doing business with them.
“The United States will continue to aggressively defend the integrity of our election systems and processes,” Mnuchin added.

Individuals who were sanctioned:
- Alexander Dubinsky;
- Dmitry Kovalchuk;
- Konstantin Kulik;
- Alexander Onishchenko;
- Anton Symonenko;
- Andrey Telizhenko;
- Petr Zhuravel.
Media which was targeted with sanctions:
- “Era-Media” (belongs to Andriy Derkach);
- Information agency Only News;
- Resource NabuLeaks;
- “Skeptic” / “Behemoth Media”.
Andriy Derkach was first to be sanctioned back in September 2020.
Since the spring, he published several audio recordings in which President Petro Poroshenko listened to directives from Obama’s deputy Joe Biden, who was in charge of Ukraine at the time.
Their voices were recorded from Poroshenko’s office, who spoke to Biden over the speakerphone. The vice-president demanded that Poroshenko remove Prosecutor General Viktor Shokin in exchange for a billion loan from the IMF and made a hack for sending saboteurs to Crimea.
The President of Ukraine boasted that he had raised utility rates even higher than the IMF demanded, asked to send a supervisor to the Prosecutor General’s Office, and approved Yuriy Lutsenko for the post of the new Prosecutor General. And much more.
Derkach also published how Pyotr Alekseevich calls Vladimir Putin a month after the battles for Debaltseve and talks to him nicely – as with an old friend.
Later, the people’s deputy published the schemes according to which Biden’s son received considerable sums in Ukraine. And he published data on how the system of corruption ties of the Democratic Party in Ukraine works. At this stage, Dubinsky, Kulik, Telizhenko and others joined the case.
That is, all Ukrainians who have come under the sanctions are those who actively spoke about the affairs of the Biden family in Ukraine and opposed external control, the US Democratic Party and its lobby in Ukraine.
After these scandals, the US Embassy was forced to deny more than once that it “externally controls” Ukraine. Which in itself was indicative – that is, this topic has acquired a very wide resonance in Ukraine.
So wide that the topic of “Derkach tapes” was forced to comment on President Vladimir Zelensky.
“About Poroshenko and Biden, yes, I heard, I’ll comment. I think this is not the last sign that Ukrainians will see. The prosecutor’s office and law enforcement agencies must respond. The Prosecutor General of Ukraine yesterday registered the criminal proceedings at the request of Deputy Derkach. They will investigate. I know that it can be perceived, qualified as high treason. All – to the law enforcement officers,” Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky said.
The US reacted strongly, and Zelensky immediately changed his mind and said that by publishing the tapes someone was trying to “destroy bipartisan support for Ukraine” and drag Kiev into the Trump-Biden election campaign. And officially the investigation of this story was frozen.
Dubinsky in a statement said, “Once again I declare that I have never interfered in elections in other states, including the American election, and never have anything to do with the publications or other similar actions of the so-called Poroshenko-Biden tapes.”
Simonenko declined to comment, Telizhenko and Kulyk did not immediately respond to requests for comment and Zhuravel could not be reached for comment.
“We didn’t expect such a broad list sanctioned under the ongoing administration,” Ukrainian anti-corruption activist Daria Kaleniuk said. “To me it is a good sign of the checks and balances system which still works in the U.S. government.”
So yes, not only is “Ukrainian democracy” clearly being entirely orchestrated from Washington, but there’s even thankful voices in support of the sanctioning against those revealing facts of corruption that was led by the incoming American President.
