Volunteer activity of the People’s Deputy of Ukraine from the “Servant of the People” Nikolay Tishchenko can be nothing more than a political PR to help the military. This is stated in a new investigation by BIHUS.Info.
“People’s Deputy Nikolay Tishchenko since the beginning of the full-scale war, he became an active volunteer. But his volunteering looks like high-level political PR. Nice, Paris, New York – for some reason, the deputy believes that it is possible to collect a substantial amount for our military only in expensive restaurants in European cities. Preferably even with a few Michelin stars.” – noted in the BIHUS.Info investigation.
According to the journalist Anastasia Usenkoinvestigators received a recording of Tishchenko’s telephone conversation, where he himself talks about PR on volunteering.
Journalists question volunteerism Nikolay Tishchenko, in particular, citing the example of his fund’s purchase of four ambulances. The same cars, only in the amount of 17 pieces, were simultaneously purchased by the fund of a well-known capital entrepreneur Artur Mkhitaryanwhich Tishchenko thank you on your Facebook page. All this, according to journalists, calls into question the fact of buying cars precisely Tishchenko.
Journalists were also surprised by the choice of venue for the so-called “charity dinners” of the Foundation Nikolay Tishchenko. In Prague, this is a castle in the suburbs, where a fashionable hotel and restaurant complex is now located. In Paris, one of the oldest and most expensive restaurants in the city, which has three Michelin stars.
Investigators are wondering if the events were more expensive than the amount collected for them to help the Armed Forces of Ukraine? In Prague, they collected about $55,000, and in Paris, about $120,000.
According to journalists, other charitable organizations and volunteers collect much larger sums without leaving Ukraine.
In support of their thoughts, the investigators cite a recording of a telephone conversation in which a man with a voice similar to the voice of Nikolay Tishchenko arranges with someone to hold the next “charity dinner” already in New York.
“There is money, it’s not about money right now, it’s about resonance itself,” – a man speaks on the tape, whose voice is similar to the voice of a people’s deputy Nikolay Tishchenko.
RecallEarlier, the head of the Servant of the People party, Olena Shulyak, dismissed Nikolai Tishchenko from the post of chairman of the political force cell in the Transcarpathian region.
