Yanukovych was paid $1-bln by Russia to scrap EU deal, former Russian lawmaker says
Journal Staff Report

KYIV, Feb 14 Ukraines disgraced former President Viktor Yanukovych received $1 billion in kickbacks from Russia after arranging $3 billion Eurobond deal with Moscow in December 2013, Ilya Ponomarev, a former Russian lawmaker, said Wednesday.

The deal was effectively negotiated by Yanukovychs eldest son, Oleksandr, who ran family business ventures, he said.

The kickbacks were supposed to pay Yanukovych for his pulling Ukraine away from closer integration with the European Union and towards closer ties with Russia.
