The Oligarchs l Al Jazeera Investigations



Aljazeera’s Investigative Unit unravels a high-stakes international plot hatched by powerful Eastern European oligarchs to make millions of dollars from a crooked deal. According to one Ukrainian analyst: “It sounds like an agreement between criminal bosses. You can sign it with your blood.”

The scheme involves using a web of offshore companies and international lawyers to raid US$160 million dollars under the noses of the authorities.

The money is effectively being stolen for a second time… the funds were initially frozen by Ukraine’s courts after its former president, Viktor Yanukovych, was discovered to have emptied the country’s treasury.

The Oligarchs include an exiled gas billionaire guarded by Russian special forces, a Moscow property magnate and an Olympic show jumper on the run from Ukrainian authorities.

The investigation shines light on the ever shifting battle between the oligarchs and global financial regulators.

  1. So sorry how the ukranian citizens come to the UK to do work in the constructions and their girls are call girls and this men waste their resources and money in un important things.

  2. Very Good Insightful Documentary…
    If Only A Similar Documentary Could Be Brought On The Sheiks of The Middle East….
    Why Not….?
    Let it Begin From The Sheiks of Qatar…
    Any Body….?

  3. Western politics has Fox news and talk Radio to swing folks with bold face lies and misdirection tricks … and other fake news outlets ( news papers etc.) Russian / fake bloggers etc… Poison the well concept… I don't know , i's just what I heard. You should do your own home work.

  4. London acts as money launderer for every major launderer around the World and looks the other way!
    I challenge the UK government to conduct a Royal Commission on this subject

  5. The Oligarchs are Russian or East European. And the anti corruption staff, possibly. These are the people why central London is empty. Lights out London. We need to get rid of these people. And the Bankers.

  6. Countries that run with religous freak are big examples of Oligarchy. Rich business man that want control inside government politics is also Oligarchy.

  7. We have had the same problem here in Pakistan since the last 2 democratic governments. Believe me, Pakistan understands the pain of Ukraine. Corruption must be ostracized, wherever it is.

  8. GOOD JOB AL JAZEERA. IT'S ABOUT TIME. YOU'LL FINE IT GOES ALL THE WAY TO BIDEN SON AND MAYBE TO OBAMAS OFFICE AND JOE MIGHT BE COVERING IT UP TO KEEP SON FREE. THE U.S F.B.I. ARE SLOW TO INVESTIGATE BECAUSE THE PEOPLE INVOLVED ALL HAVE SOME THING TO HIDE.
