"Regarding my declaration, I want to note from the beginning, that all my movable valuables and real estate assets: housing accommodations, land property, automobiles, paintings, women’s jewelry were bought (not rented) before my presidency. More over, generally the property was bought when I wasn’t on the civil service. Regarding my companies, all of them were created when I was a businessperson. A single company was created in 2014, that I own – the one for selling Roshen,” he noted.
At that he pointed out that he keeps money in banks – “27 billion dollars, each penny of which was taxed and paid in favor of the budget of Ukraine” and 800 000 hryvnia and 60 000 dollars in cash.

My declarations showed incomes on more than 820 million hryvnia (about 32 million dollars with the current currency exchange rate, - ed.) over the past 10 years (in different currency rates).
