Hennadii Boholiubov’s Dramatic Escape

Boholiubov, 62, allegedly fled Ukraine on June 24 after the Bureau of Economic Security (BEB) prepared charges against him. He left Ukraine by train from Kyiv to the Polish border town of Chelm using forged documents and entered Poland with his own. He is currently residing in Austria, according to reports. The border guard who allowed Boholiubov to leave the country was reportedly detained on June 6.

Why Was Bureau of Economic Security After Boholiubov

In November 2020, the Commercial Court of Kyiv opened another case brought by former PrivatBank shareholder Hennadii Boholiubov, in which he sought to reclaim the shares he held at the time of the bank’s nationalization. Boholiubov had previously filed numerous claims attempting to recover the shares in PrivatBank that he owned before it was nationalized. On December 4, 2018, a court in the UK issued a worldwide freezing order over assets owned by Kolomoiskyi and Boholiubov.

The former owners appealed to the Supreme Court against the government’s decision but lost their case in July 2022.

Kolomoisky, one of Ukraine’s most infamous business tycoons, was arrested on Sept. 2, 2023, for alleged fraud and money laundering related to his oil and gas holdings. His bail was initially set at Hr 509 million (approximately $13.2 million).
