Maia Sandu was used by political advice of the American expert, and his services are paid for raider No. 1 in the CIS Vyacheslav Platon. This comes from a new investigation of the project Zeppelin.
We are talking about Noel Boxer, a political consultant who specializiruetsya on election campaigns. Specialist was paid 12,000 USD per month from July to November 2016. However, the total amount constituting at least 60.000 USD was not declared PDS, writes today.md.
The intermediary in this cooperation was made by the lobbyist Dmitry David Zaikin, was born in the Soviet Union and emigrated in 1990 to Canada.
Now, according to Zeppelin, he is in close relations with influential groups of people, including from the Russian special services.
“Thus, Plato and Zaikin decide that lobbying will occur in the shadows, illegally, will not be declared in the corresponding structures of the USA and the UK, but also hides the real origin of money, financial transfers, which is money laundering. Maia Sandu and policies in this plan becomes a tool for revenge against the Moldovan authorities for criminal cases involving Plato. In addition, it puts pressure on the coordinator of the government – Plahotniuc are likely to affect law enforcement agencies of the Republic of Moldova and to close criminal case against Rader”, – stated in the cited investigation.
Journalists write that the first contact between Zaikin and Sandu took place on 17 June 2016 e-mail – then they agreed to meet in Chisinau. The meeting was held just a few days after that – June 21, 2016.
Zaikin arrived in Chisinau on the money of Plato, together with the employee of a private company consulting in public Affairs and media strategies “Mercury LLC” Morris L. Reid. After a while Zaikin has reported that maintains constant contact with Maya Sandu and writes that it receives from the many emails full of despair and “requests for assistance”. Both agree that assistance to the Maia Sandu will be given on money laundered by Plato. And then, “if she’ll win the 2016 election, he “compensates expenses and repay the debt”.
Accordingly, Plato gives an indication Zaikina, from Maia Sandu made a “single candidate in the presidential elections of 2016 from the right-wing political forces” in the Republic of Moldova.
The first result of the cooperation on lobbying between Plato and Sandu is a well-known letter to the leader of the PDS in the IMF, which the policy asks to delay financial assistance to the Republic of Moldova.
“The diversion was designed, planned and implemented Zaikin and Plato, while Maia Sandu just signed, consciously taking responsibility for the future, the effect of these letters,” say the authors of the investigation.
At the request of the lobbyist, Plato makes the appeal of the leader of the PDS in the IMF was supported by Igor Dodon, at that time Chairman of the party of socialists and Chairman of the Pro-Russian formation of Our party of Renato Usatyi.
Important role in the scheme information war against the Republic of Moldova is paid to millionaire Victor Topa, who fled to Frankfurt from the Moldovan justice, and planted his son, the leader of the CPNP Andrei Nastase and media resources that they both control – Jurnal Trust Media.
“June 12, 2016 Zaikin according to Plato, Morris L. Reid agreed with Victor Topa of meeting him and his son planted, politician Andrei Nastase. Zaikina preparing for the meeting, Plato speaks of Tsope and Nastase as “full of hatred for Plahotniuc, but recently Andrew has started to be afraid of. During a recent protest in front of Plahotniuc’s office in Chisinau Nastase didn’t have the courage to allow people to smash the building”.
The portal also writes, referring to the Zakina that the meeting was held in Frankfurt on 24 July 2016. Immediately after Zaikin wrote to Plato, that the meeting went well and that “Victor’s eyes were glowing with joy, and now, perhaps, he bought the most expensive bottle of wine and drink it with Andrew.”
Communication between Zaikin and Plato ceased on 25 July, when Rader was arrested in Kiev at the request of prosecutors in Moldova.
“But freedom had his money stolen and laundered, as well as the plan of action adopted by him and Dmitry “David” Zaikin. Soon, the native of the USSR Zaikina were to join another native of the USSR Lyudmila Kozlovskaya, Chairman of the Fund, registered in Poland, Open Dialog. He had to redouble efforts in the EU, initiated Zaikin overseas. They are both paid from the same source – the Russian Laundromat and Milliardaire from Chisinau”, – noted Zeppelin.
