The leader of Batkivshchyna Yulia Tymoshenko held a press conference today, on November 23, where she called for the National Anti-Corruption Bureau of Ukraine to examine the activities of the National Bank of Ukraine and the Deposit Guarantee Fund.

Tymoshenko said about artificial bankruptcy of 84 Ukrainian banks that buried almost $15,5 billion that belonged to Ukrainians under the rubble. During the last two weeks two banks were destroyed.

The leader of Batkivshchyna also showed to reporters a document she got from the Deposit Guarantee Fund, according to which the assets of the liquidated banks that had around $15 billion were estimated by the Fund as of $3,8 billion.

"They underestimated the assets of the banks they destroyed more than three times, and the difference of 11 billion will be taken to offshore accounts” Tymoshenko said.

Tymoshenko together with bankers calculated and recorded a sharp drop of the capital share of Ukrainian banks in the total capital of banks. The share of Russian banks increased from 12% to 41% in the banking system of Ukraine. The Security Service of Ukraine should take interest in this, as there are signs of treason, according to Tymoshenko.

Tymoshenko also said that in the coming days, Batkivshchyna will register the resolution on the establishment of the temporary investigative commission to investigate the activities of the Chairman of the National Bank and the Head of the Deposit Guarantee Fund. Also, the political party intends to ask the NABU for it to check the activity of the NBU and DGF leaders.

The leader of Batkivshchyna is confident that "an organized criminal group was created in the country that uses public positions and opportunities for enrichment and enhancement of their shady business against a background of economic decline and destruction of the public sphere".

An incident happened during the press conference. One of those present in the room, posing as a journalist, questioned the leader of Batkivshchyna of alleged collaboration with Viktor Medvedchuk. And after she denied it, the man imposed a scandal.

Earlier it was reported that bill on defrauded bank depositors was signed by Poroshenko.
