A Ukrainian member of Parliament alleged on Wednesday that $16.5 million received by former Vice President Joe Biden’s son, Hunter Biden, and his partners through Burisma Holdings was stolen from Ukrainian citizens.
Hunter Biden took at position on the board of the Ukrainian natural gas firm Burisma Holdings in April 2014, months after his father had been named the Obama administration’s point man for Ukraine, The Wall Street Journal reported.
An official with ties to Burisma told The Journal Biden’s compensation was around $50,000 per month.
The position with the company ended in April of this year, the same month Joe Biden announced his presidential candidacy.
Over the course of the five years that Hunter Biden was on the Burisma board, he would have earned $3 million in compensation.
Ukrainian Member of Parliament Andriy Derkach stated that the Ukrainian Prosecutor General’s Office has reason to believe Burisma’s owner Mykola Zlochevsky obtained the funds paid to Biden and his associates by “criminal means.”
“The PGO document once again confirms the data I had previously published on Burisma and international corruption. According to Zlochevsky’s suspicion notice, Biden and partners received their $16.5 million for their services to Burisma,” Derkach said at a news conference in Kiev, according to Interfax-Ukraine.
“Biden received funds not due to the successful activity of Burisma or for brilliant business decisions or recommendations. This is the money of Ukrainian citizens. The funds were obtained by criminal means. That’s what they say in the PGO,” the member of parliament said.
