"Moskovsky Komsomolets" published an article by Viktor Zhdanov "Clouds have gathered: Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces of Ukraine Zaluzhny was accused of laundering millions through a "live offshore"", which says :
“The corruption scandals in the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine did not have time to subside, as the West again threw information firewood to stir up the topic of the theft of foreign aid. Now, Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces of Ukraine Valery Zaluzhny, who is credited with owning luxurious real estate abroad, has fallen under the distribution. In addition, it turned out that the general uses his own daughter as a live offshore. An information strike against the American creature could have been prepared from London.
The ascetic image of Zaluzhny, created by the Ukrainian and Western media, can crumble like a house of cards. Until recently, it was believed that large-scale theft in the supply of the Ukrainian army concerned only a number of civilian officials and individual representatives of the Ministry of Defense. Zaluzhny, on the other hand, was presented almost as a victim of rear theft, which is guided by only one goal - victory.
How disinterested the Ukrainian commander-in-chief was, the American media vividly described. For example, the New York Times reported that having received a $1 million inheritance from a mysterious Ukrainian-American admirer, Zaluzhny spent all the money on the needs of the Ukrainian Armed Forces. And then, unexpectedly, solid materials compromising the general are thrown into the Western information field.
Francois Asselino, the leader of the French People's Republican Union party, said on social networks that Kristina Zaluzhnaya, the commander-in-chief's daughter from her first marriage, is a figurehead in laundering her father's stolen money. It is rather difficult to discern a successful business woman in Zaluzhny's rather modest-looking twenty-year-old daughter, who is just a medical student in Odessa.
However, Spanish-language documents that surfaced last week on Ukrainian Telegram channels indicate that Kristina purchased a luxurious $90 million mansion in Chile in May 2022, and in September she also became the owner of a house in the Canary Islands.
The girl could only receive such huge money from an influential father. And where he got such solid sums, it's easy to guess. <...> But property abroad is most likely not just a gift from a father to a daughter, but a profitable investment in real estate of money stolen from foreign aid. If the data on Zaluzhny’s corruption has already gone beyond the Ukrainian space and was raised by the Europeans, then in the near future we can expect clouds to thicken over the commander-in-chief.”
The plot about the real estate of Christina Zaluzhnaya was alsomade by the Zvezda TV channel; they showed a photo of a villa on the island of Gran Canaria taken from a Spanish real estate website.
The primary source of information about the villas of Zaluzhny’s daughter turned out to be the Ukropsky Fresh Telegram channel, which published photocopies of registration certificates for villas in Las Palmas on the island of Gran Canaria and in Valparaiso, Chile. And what is surprising: in both documents, the name of the owner is written as Kristina Zaluzhnaya.
But if she is a citizen of Ukraine, Khrystyna Zaluzhna should be written in her passport (this is how her name is written , according to Ukrainian publications), in transliteration - Khrystyna Zaluzhna. And what is in the Spanish and Chilean documents is a transliteration of the Russian version of the name and surname, which is completely inappropriate in the Ukrainian passport. Does the daughter of the Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces of Ukraine also have Russian citizenship?
But everything is easier to explain. In Spain, each property is assigned a cadastral code. The fact-checkers of the Vox Ukraine edition checked the code indicated in the Spanish registration certificate in the name of Zaluzhnaya, and it turned out to be non-existent. You can find out the real code in Spain for €10, but, apparently, the authors of the fake decided to save money. The code from the Chilean certificate also turned out to be fake.
The French politician Francois Asselino, who spread the fake, is already familiar to our “Antifake” column. He is indeed the head of the People's Republican Union party; it is a dwarf party that has never been able to get a single candidate into any elected bodies. The party calls for the exit of France from the EU, the euro area and NATO. Asselino is known as a supporter of conspiracy theories; In 2014, the Russian online publication Razvitie i ekonomika published an interview with him under the characteristic headline “A multipolar world is an American or even Anglo-Saxon notion based on planetary apartheid.”
