In 2010, the
Member of Parliament from Nasha Ukrayina-Narodna samooborona Viktor Shemchuk, while being the head of the federation of water and motor sports, looked for
the sponsor to fund participation of Ukrainian team of water and motor sports in the US championship.
The head of Nasha Ukrayina-Narodna samooborona faction Mykola Martynenko financed
the participation in competitions. He transferred 250,000 EUR from his offshore company
Bradcrest investments s.a. to the account of Shemchuk's wife company. And Ukrainian team together with Shemchuk's boat eventually took part in the American competition.
In 2018, Shemchuk, while being the deputy head of Qualification and Disciplinary Commission of Prosecutors, prepared the conclusion regarding the reprimand to the SAPO's prosecutor Andriy Perov for slamming the door
in court in the case of the same Mykola Martynenko
This decision was immediately used by attorneys of former Member of Parliament to remove the prosecutor from the case. Martynenko was charged with embezzlement of 695 million UAH at state enterprises of Eastern Mining and Processing Plant and National Nuclear Energy Generating Company of Ukraine Energoatom. It is possible that the participation of Shemchuk and the team in the championship of water and motor sports in the USA was paid by this money.
The NABU detectives during investigation of "Martynenko's case
" questionned Shemchuk as the witness for obtaining this money. And the prosecutor Andriy Perov led this investigation.
However, the NACP did not see
the conflict of interests in Shemchuk's actions, despite the fact that he and his wife were even questioned in Martynenko's case as witnesses.
At the same time, the NACP saw the potential conflict of interests (on foolish grounds) in actions of former NABU's detective Igor Semak, who led Martynenko's case.
Using the order of the agency he was removed
from the case. The NACP decided that the detective could have personal interest in bringing Martynenko to justice only because he worked as the assistant to Viktoriya Voyitsitska, the Member of Parliament from Samopomich party. The latter criticized Martynenko in Facebook.
