Ex-Prime Minister of Ukraine Mykola Azarov believes that the Ukrainian authorities have to investigate the legality of the actions of Hunter Biden in the Ukrainian gas company, the son of U.S. presidential candidate Joe Biden. The former high official reported that during the interview with Reuters.
"It’s a fact (his directorship and fees) and not made up. It should be investigated so that the ‘i’s can be dotted and the ‘t’s crossed," Azarov said.
Hunter Biden’s role in the company, Burisma Holdings Limited, is in focus after the White House released a memo showing U.S. President Donald Trump asked his Ukrainian counterpart, Volodymyr Zelenskiy, in a July phone call to get prosecutors to look into his activities.
The representative of Joe Biden's team refused to comment on Azarov's words and no one of Hunter's critics has not submitted any evidence that he broke up the Ukrainian law.
Ukraine’s National Anti-Corruption Bureau said on Friday it was investigating activity at Burisma between 2010-2012, but that it was not looking into changes to its board in 2014, when Hunter Biden joined. He stepped the post of Director down in 2019.
