Orange kids ... (children of deputies, oligarchs)
Orange Babes ... Part 1
Original: Andrei Yushchenko.
Son of God?
Leonid Amchuk, UP, 19.07.2005
Do you know why Ukraine does not hold a competition for major children? Because the champion is known in advance. And to call him Andrei Viktorovich Yushchenko, this is the eldest son of the president of Ukraine.
Admittedly, he has good taste. The model of this year, the forms can tear down the roof of the car enthusiast, and its price - to the tax inspector. We called the official BMW dealer in Ukraine - AVT "Bavaria":
- Good afternoon, do you have a BMW M6?
- Only under the order. The deadline is three months.
- How much is?
- The base model is 133 thousand euros.
- Is there already a lot of such cars in Kiev?
- Only one.
- Have you bought?
- Not. But what does it matter? ...
At this and said goodbye.
Comparing the fact of the appearance on Monday night of Andrei Yushchenko in a BMW M6 car on Lutheran Street, we realized who the happy owner of a car miracle is. The correspondent of Ukrainska Pravda tried to learn more about the manners of the president’s son, who, by the way, is still in the category of teenagers. Out of this interesting story, which almost ended in fights.
While Andrei Yushchenko was sitting in a car in the middle of the road, his guards took up combat positions near the rear body. True, they were better acquainted with the rules of the road and drove their BMW on the pavement.
A couple of minutes, the son of Deputy Interior Minister Alexander Fokin, dismissed for suspicion of corruption, drove past Andrei Yushchenko’s car. The kids talked a bit.
Ten minutes later, the car of the State Automobile Inspectorate (blue numbers 2022) added a picture that at first wanted to break this idyll. But, having approached and exchanged a few phrases with the guards, the traffic cops disappeared. BMW M6 continued to stand in the middle of the road, oncoming cars pressed against the sidewalk, barely passing between the son-president and bodyguard cars.
Later we found these cops and asked why they did not achieve the fulfillment of traffic rules. They ate sunflower seeds and said: "We are nobody else, because Yushchenko liquidated us today, and secondly, we already know who was in that car - either a security guard or driver Yushchenko."
One evening in the life of Andrei Viktorovich
After some time, the cortege of young Yushchenko left. But the author of these words had to continue the search for what he came for. Since not everyone could believe in the price of a machine at the price of 810 thousand hryvnia for the president’s son, this fact had to be documented. Lutheran street is dark, and the photos came out frankly bad.
He didn’t fall into despair, but headed towards the concentration of "trump seats" near the Passage. He got to the restaurant "Fellini" on Gorodetsky Street, which, according to rumors, is also loved by Andrey Viktorovich Yushchenko.
About a minute later, guard Yushchenko Jr. came out of Fellini. Further events began to unfold very interesting.
- Hey, who are you?
- Yes, we take pictures of a beautiful car. How much is?
- Fifty thousand!
It can be seen, the president’s son doesn’t tell the truth about the car even to his guards, so he had to name the real value. Then he decided to ask, "on whose order you are working."
Suddenly the president’s son himself came out of Fellini. It was difficult to count on the best gift - it was so possible to make his photo on the background of the car. Although it would seem, in order not to compromise his father, he quietly had to sit out in the restaurant this surge of public activity around the car.
But it happened otherwise. Without saying a word, Andrei Yushchenko got behind the wheel and re-parked the car on the other side. Absolutely meaningless maneuver, because even here he did not interfere with anyone, but even there this gorgeous 800-thousand BMW driver was striking.
Requirements on the part of the security guard to show documents were similar to him. After some time of unsuccessful communication, this man went to the restaurant. But after a minute he came back again - he was not pleased with anything original, except for a couple of mathews of the same requirement to show the documents. And when we were about to go, I decided to make an attempt to get into Lauer's car. He drowned the "gas", and the president’s son’s security guard was left alone with his questions.
The whole story, of course, is an interference with the arrogant journalists' personal life of the president’s son. It just seemed to us that, in spite of this, there is the right of citizens to know what a third-year student of the Institute of International Relations goes to, Andrei Viktorovich Yushchenko, born in 1986.
We also wonder what finances allow him to drive a BMW M6 - the price of which is equal to his father’s 25-year salary (as you know, until June, the President of Ukraine received 2,600 hryvnias).
In addition, there is the question of why the president’s son drives a Czech car. It is worth admitting that we could not find out when the car crossed the border of Ukraine, whether it will be registered here and how much customs duty should be paid for it. Therefore, for deputies who want to submit a request, we give the car's license plate number: cz 3U1 0401.
And finally, Andrei Yushchenko’s passion for luxury goods is exciting. It is known that, for example, the mobile phone of the president’s son is not some banal Nokia or Motorola, but Vertu firms. If someone does not know, then these are such exclusive tubes with the minimum cost of a compact car.
Other people say that they recently saw Andrei Yushchenko at the Ibiza Club in Odessa - he settled his family with seven hundred-dollar bills at his table. In the capital, Andrei Viktorovich prefers the club "Decadence". There he drinks French champagne "Crystal". The cost of the bottle is also worthy, over 6,000 hryvnias.
In general, despite their dislike for publicity, there are legends about the president’s son. Even some people even managed to find out where he found his “delicate” guards. It turns out that Andrei Viktorovich’s peace is protected by ... former bouncers from the Tchaikovsky club in Kiev.
True, this is also an interesting story. How can you trust the child of the president to people who have no right to carry a firearm? Or do they wear it - breaking the law?
PS "Ukrainska Pravda" turned for comment on these events to Andrei Yushchenko through the mediation of the press secretary of the president, Irina Gerashchenko. She gave us a statement from the son of the president, which is given verbatim:
"That evening I was going to the cinema. (From UE: this time in the cinema" Ukraine ", which is located in the same room with the restaurant" Fellini ", the screen version of the comic book" Fantastic Four "and the comedy" If the mother-in-law is a monster "were shown).
The car I came in belongs to my friend. For ethical reasons and without his consent I will not mention his name.
Regarding security, during the election campaign, my parents, for obvious reasons, decided to hire guards from a private structure.
During this time, this guy became rather an assistant and a friend. And, frankly, it does not rarely help in situations like the evening when he turned to journalists to respect my right to privacy.
Services security company pays for the family. (I make my contribution here). Admit it, being a son of a politician is a big responsibility and a big test. Especially when it comes to the son of the president. I respect the right of journalists to information and understand their special attention to the children of politicians.
On the other hand, I would like journalists to understand my right to privacy. I am not a politician, and, frankly, I am not always ready to expose my personal life for general judgments.
I realize the responsibility that Yushchenko’s last name imposes on me. At the same time, I am an adult, an independent person and do not want to be perceived only as the son of the president.
I study and in parallel for several years working in a business firm, trying to be financially independent. I do not have fleets, but I earn my independent life. Regarding the car, then how personal I use the car that belongs to my mother. "

Son of God?
Part 2. Leonid Amchuk, UP, 22.07.2005
The story of the BMW M6 Andrei Viktorovich Yushchenko aroused interest in the Ukrainian masses. The appearance of the president’s son in a car worth 800 thousand hryvnias and in addition with Czech numbers is not a tabloid journalism, as some private figures from Yushchenko’s circle are trying to convince in private conversations.
This is the fulfillment of the instructions of the president, who himself swore that everyone will be equal before the law, and urged others to believe. There are more than enough reasons for suspicion in this car story. Therefore, "Ukrainian Truth" decided to help the father of our hero. We tried to continue the study - and learned something new, although not very much.
First of all, you should applaud Andrei Yushchenko’s comment, which Ukrainska Pravda received from the press secretary of the head of state. There, the son of the leader of the nation frankly confessed to violating the law, for which he had to confiscate this very miracle car on the spot.
No, we are not talking about the fact that he parked right in the middle of the road on the dividing lane and with some phraseological miracle convinced GAI officers who disturbed the rest not to touch him. The thing is different.
Penalty for Yushchenko’s son
Andrei Viktorovich Yushchenko has found the most unbanal explanation for what he now drives this too expensive car for the 19-year-old son of the president. He did not say that he had found an empty car in the forest with keys in the lock. No, according to Yushchenko Jr., this car was given to him by a friend, whose name “for ethical reasons” he did not name.
If you force yourself to believe the president’s son that the car is not his, then it means that he had no right to steer it. We received an explanation from a representative of the newly liquidated State Automobile Inspectorate, who asked not to be named.
So, on the legendary BMW M6 were Czech numbers. This allows the owner of the car, if he is a foreigner, after passing certain procedures at the border to drive it through the territory of Ukraine for two months.
If the owner wants to continue using such a car, he must leave this fertile land and then come back to Ukraine again to get the same two-month right again. It turns out such a legal scheme to avoid registering a car in Ukraine and paying customs clearance - which in the case of the BMW M6 would reach 30-40 thousand dollars.
If the car belongs to a Ukrainian, who temporarily delivered it from abroad, then he needs to register with the traffic police for ten days, hang up temporary Ukrainian numbers, and return his own foreign numbers to the MREO. There he must take a temporary registration certificate.
All this, the president’s son or his mythical “buddy” did not - although they exploited the BMW M6 with foreign numbers for more than ten days.
From this we can conclude that his hypothetical "friend" is a foreigner if he can travel fearlessly with Czech numbers.
But in this legend of Andrei Yushchenko, “about friendship with the beamer,” there is a weak spot — it is impossible to issue a power of attorney for such vehicles, which are imported temporarily. And without it, the president’s son cannot drive a BMW M6. Unless, of course, the owner of a Czech car, who can confirm his right to a car, is constantly in the next seat. However, Andrei Viktorovich in this BMW M6 carries himself and his girlfriend Anna, but by no means this phantom friend.
There is another almost unbelievable option - let us assume that the power of attorney to Andrei Yushchenko was issued right in the Czech Republic. There is a certain conflict here. The notaries say that it is enough only to confirm this document in the Czech authorities and, with observance of all norms, translate into Ukrainian - and the power of attorney will be valid.
But for consultation, Ukrainska Pravda turned to Kiev MREO-8, where foreigners are served, and to the State Customs Service. Both there and there they assured that wherever the power of attorney was issued, if the car is with foreign numbers, only the owner can ride it. Otherwise - a direct violation of the law "On the procedure for importing into Ukraine, customs clearance and taxation of personal belongings, goods and vehicles that are imported by citizens into the customs territory of Ukraine."
It says: "Vehicles (...) temporarily imported under a written obligation to re-export may not be transferred into the possession or use of other persons."
Therefore, there may be two conclusions - or Yushchenko’s son really is the owner of this car for 800 thousand hryvnias, then he violated only that for ten days he did not register with the traffic police.
Or the car is not his, and the son of the president systematically sneezes on the law. What should have been the first control to be the reason for the delivery of this car to the penalty area until all the circumstances were clarified - because the person who had no right to do so was driving. It would also entail a small fine and a fee for a place in the traffic police.
However, as you know, no one arrested the car. Despite the fact that Andrei Yushchenko did not just take her to go for one evening. He used - and, maybe, he continues to do it all the time.
The son of the president was seen on her every evening on Lutheran Street in Kiev. Moreover, on July 9, in the society of this car, it was recorded in Odessa on Rishelevskaya Street. There are people who are ready to confirm this publicly - ICTV journalist Alexander Butyrsky.
The car from the city of brothels
In the meantime, Ukrainska Pravda continued to search for a Czech garage, from which this BMW M6 moved to Ukraine.
As you know, license plates of cars - cz 3U1 0401. "Ukrainian Pravda" in the Czech Embassy in Kiev explained that the letter U means the place of registration of the car - in the region of Ustecky region.
Almost at the same time, our reader Sergey from German Dresden got in touch with the editors. His city is located 45 kilometers from the regional center of the neighboring state - Usti nad Labem (or Usti nad Elbe) - and Sergey is often there.
"In your photo (the car driven by Yushchenko’s son) I see that these are not transit numbers. The owner of the car must officially live there. In Usti nad Labem, the biggest criminality and unemployment in the Czech Republic. The city is famous for brothels, nightclubs and the Ukrainian mafia Clients for sex work come from Germany, because Usti nad Labem is 30 km from the German border. Even if this car is a son’s friend - as he claims - certain questions arise here, "wrote Sergey.
Questions have arisen with us. On the other hand, it should be recognized that we do not know whether the BMW M6 is registered in this suspicious city, or in the neighboring towns of the Ustetsky region.
Ukrainska Pravda telephoned the owner of the car dealership, who called himself Mr. Nagi and spoke bad German and Russian. According to him, only one BMW M6 was sold in them, and its owner was ... a client from Ukraine.
"This car is rarely wanted. And it is not easy to buy it - as, incidentally, sell it," said Mr. Nagy.
On the cherished question, who bought this car, he disappointed: "This is secret information." There is nothing strange in this answer, so we asked directly that in Ukraine there are suspicions that the owner is the son of the president. To this Mr. Nagi said: "This is your information, not mine!"
Then we tried to explain that if the fact that Andrei Yushchenko bought the car from him was confirmed, it would be a great advertisement for his car dealership. Mr. Nagi did not allow himself to speak his teeth either: “I don’t need to know who bought the car. The main thing is that everything was okay when buying. That’s what happened. And who was the buyer is another topic.”
In such a situation, it is possible to find out the ownership of a car only at the Ukrainian customs and border guard services, where it was entered into the database upon entry. But, as they say, they do not have a centralized system. Therefore, in order to check for whom the BMW M6 is registered, which the president’s son uses for his own needs, one must know the name of the customs, where the car crossed the Ukrainian border.
"Ukrainian Truth" hopes in this matter for the help of deputies who can send a request and deny that the relevant authorities will be more difficult.
"My family will report to you!"
During the time after the first publication, other details became known - the behavior of the guard of the president’s son. According to the law, state bodyguards must protect it. But, as you know, Andrei Yushchenko said that this is a private company - while the source of Ukrainskaya Pravda is recognized in them as a bouncer from the Tchaikovsky nightclub.
The UP received a letter from the representative of the editors of a Ukrainian magazine. It tells a story that almost ended in a scuffle in the favorite club of Yushchenko’s son Decadence.
A quarrel took place between the owner of this glossy publication and the guard of the younger Yushchenko. The reason was that the photographer of the magazine recorded the son of the president on tape. The final was a huge scandal, which was described as follows:
"The dialogue looked like the most usual clashes to which all visitors to the restaurant joined. The guards were armed and allowed themselves some" extra "phrases and outright threats. Andrei himself encouraged this behavior of his bodyagi, who look more like gangsters than guards. He sat and sipped champagne, embracing with his passion Anna. "
The journalistic investigation of the Ukrainska Pravda regarding Andrei Yushchenko will continue, and we still hope to find out who owns the BMW M6, which replaces the son of the president of the iron horse.
I would also like to know where the president’s son so successfully earns money if he leads the lifestyle of the heir to the Arab throne. And, of course, in this situation one cannot do without the requirement to make public the income statements of the president, his wife and son last year.
As recently as Tuesday, during a meeting of the board of the Interior Ministry, Yushchenko said: "I give you my word, I will personally report to you on each of my actions. On each private operation, my family will report to you." We assume that the moment when the president should fulfill this promise has already arrived.
Ukrainska Pravda asked once again for a comment on Yushchenko’s press secretary, Irina Gerashchenko, who said she could answer questions about returning from Japan.
Perhaps the presidential secretariat, as usual, hopes that the scandal will “resolve”. This time will not be able to hush up. Only on the Ukrainska Pravda website, the first part of the story about Andrei Yushchenko was downloaded almost 70 thousand times.
For a complete reprint turned several newspapers with a total circulation of about 100 thousand. In addition, this story about the BMW M6 was published in the most reputable Ukrainian editions of "Today" and "Facts" and spread to the Russian press.
Save the reputation of the president in this situation can only be frankness, which we hope.
It would not be superfluous for your friends to find out this information, share the article with them!
