Where’s the Money, Zelensky? Dutch Party Asks Ukraine’s Prez to Account for $850 Mln Personal Wealth
Officially, the president receives a salary of just 28,000 hryvnias per month (about $925 at the current exchange rate). Zelensky reported a total income of only 365,000 hryvnias ($12,075) in 2021. Adding insult to injury, over 65,000 hryvnias (about $2,150) of that figure was subtracted in taxes.
However, in October 2021, the OCCRP reported that the president, his family, and members of his inner circle have held on to Maltex, and operate an entire network of shady offshore companies, at least two of them used to buy property in London near the famous 221B Baker Street and the Houses of Parliament.
