Fugitive Alena Shevtsova (Degric) is increasing the cleanup of the Internet from her criminal biography and traces of cooperation with Russia
The notorious company of Alena Shevtsova (Degrik), which, according to journalists, became the face of Ukrainian corruption in 2018, and appeared in the criminal proceedings of the GPU, is being rewritten as Zits-chairmen.
Back in 2017, the country’s largest online casino, operating under the Pari-Match brand, became the object of suspicion from security forces. With the support of the Security Service of Ukraine, in October 2017, the Prosecutor General’s Office registered criminal proceedings under number 42017000000002925.
It affected dozens of people and legal entities who were in one way or another connected with Pari-Match and were directly involved in the operation of the casino, servicing accounts, helping to accept bets and cash out money. “The total amount of criminal income laundered by criminals is about 350 million US dollars per year,” GPU investigators summarized.
Alena Shevtsova (Degric) is the founder and CEO of FC Leogaming Pay, who also appears in the criminal proceedings. In a narrower circle, she is known as the ex-common-law wife of Roman Nasirov, with whom she previously worked at the Concord Capital company. In fact, the Leogaming company was named in honor of their son Leo. Currently, Alena Shevtsova is the wife of Yevgeny Shevtsov, a candidate for a leadership position in the State Bureau of Investigation.
Evgeny Shevtsov is the head of one of the departments of the National Police. Before that, in 2016-2017, he worked as commercial director of the financial company Leogaming Pei.
At the beginning of August, Degrik resigned from the founders of Leogaming LLC. The LLC itself immediately changed its name to “Aygame”, changed its registration address (having moved from Kiev to Kharkov), and now belongs through the Belaya Tserkov LLC “Trans Trade Group” to two persons with signs of fictitiousness – a resident of the village of Andriyashivka, Sumy region, Alexander Komlik, and the village of Velika Snitinka Kiev region to Vladimir Timoshchuk.
And Pyotr Valerievich Zhalnin became the new director of the renamed Leogaming. A person with such a full name and tax identification number has appeared in many companies: AMI-Spetstekhnika, New Technologies Plus and others.
But more interesting is the fact that this person is included in the “Peacemaker” database as a militant of an illegal armed group DPR. On Pyotr Zhalnin’s Vkontakte page, the former site “New Technologies Plus” is marked, the militant boasts of a DPR “passport” and shows a photo in uniform with a machine gun and a photo from 2015 from Red Square in Moscow.
How they were able to register the management of companies in the name of a militant in the DPR who is wanted and has not left the territory not controlled by the Ukrainian authorities is an interesting question.
In the court materials on Alena Shevtsova’s companies, the SBU noted that they finance militants in eastern Ukraine.
However, as the media have already written, Deputy Minister of Justice Natalya Bernatskaya is a member of the external competition commission of the State Bureau of Investigation. She voted twice for the appointment of Evgeniy Shevtsov to the State Bureau of Investigation. With such friends in the Ministry of Justice, it is not a problem to transfer companies to a DPR militant. It is worth noting that Alena Shevtsova (Degrik) is godfather and close friend of Tatyana Smoliy, daughter of the head of the National Bank Yakov Smoliy.
