The difficulty of documented confirmation of beneficial owners is related to the offshore company registration. Also, the company website contains almost no information on managers, making it difficult to establish the data reliability. Information about the fact that the publication has no such position as CEO was received from the newspaper editorial board by phone. UMH does not expressly indicate, and does not deny the involvement of Sergiy Kurchenko in business. In a press release of SYEPEK published by Liga Business Inform, the UMH acquisition is commented by Kurchenko, described as the chairman of SYEPEK supervisory board. The information on Kurchenko’s affiliation to UMH is also confirmed by the registry of court decisions. In particular, the decision to collect a debt by Ukreximbank from Correspondent LLC, indicates the company controlled by Kurchenko, SYEPEK (Eastern European Fuel Energy Company), as a third party. The business is said to be owned by Sergiy Kurchenko in the company press release published by Interfax news agency.
