$50 тысяч за статью: журналист рассказал о работе Луценко главредом газеты

Yuriy Lutsenko once worked as chief editor

In connection with the arrest for extortion the editor of “the Country,” the attorney General recalled his own work in the media.

Prosecutor General Yury Lutsenko, who put forward the accusation of blackmail against the chief editor of the online publication Stranaya that he earned in this way. About this on his page in Facebook wrote journalist Vladimir Boyko.

“Probably the most fun (at least for me) in the story of arrest of chief editor of the newspaper “Country” Igor Guzhva is something about this event with pathos said the General, God forgive me, the Prosecutor Yuriy Lutsenko. Because, says Yury Vitalyevich, the search in the editorial of the online publication and detention of the chief editor due to the fact that Guzhva allegedly demanded 10 thousand dollars with MP Linko for what “Country” would not publish the dirt on people, so to speak, chosen.

But I had fun because in 2002 – 2004 I worked in the weekly “Grani-plus”, the owner and chief editor of which was Yuriy Lutsenko. It is clear that the fees I received “the envelope” directly from the hands of Yury Vitalyevich, and lived this edition thanks to the funds that Lutsenko “earned” through blackmail their colleagues – people’s deputies of Ukraine.

For example, after the “Faces plus” to my trilogy about the first Vice-speaker of the Verkhovna Rada (and the future of the General Prosecutor of Ukraine) Gennady Vasilyev Yury Vitalyevich shaken from Gennady Andreyevich 50 thousand Dollars, blackmailing him my name and the promise to publish the fourth article. It is clear that I. did not know and with the money I got nothing. And such a strange way of earning editor-in-chief, I learned later, when Lutsenko I declared that no more articles about Vasiliev place he will not be called the cause.

My surprise was limitless. I, naively, thought that Yury Vitalyevich lives only with bribes (he doesn’t hide the fact that, as Chairman of the Subcommittee on communications of the transport Committee of the Verkhovna Rada, taking money for lobbying of interests of the leading mobile operators).

And only after a history of 50 thousand dollars received from Lutsenko Vasilyeva, I understand why Yuri V. from time to time brought to the attention of the journalists the names of those officials whom it is forbidden to mention in the pages of “Grani-plus” – in particular, people’s Deputy Efim Zvyagilsky and Chairman of the SBU Leonid Derkach (according to the latest Lutsenko paid the son of Andrey Derkach)”, – summed up Boyko.

We will remind, in the evening of June 22 edition of the online publication Stranaya the search took place. Prosecutor General Yury Lutsenko reported about the detention of editor-in-chief edition Igor Guzhva. According to the head of the GPU, Guzhva allegedly demanded and received 10 thousand dollars for the deployment of compromising materials on the current policy.
