Svetlana Zvarich, the head of the Ukrainian National Transport Systems company, published an open letter accusing Azov members of attempting to illegally take over part of her business as well as blackmail and death threats on her Facebook page, the Life agency reported on January 17.
According to Zvarich, in February 2016 she expressly refused former deputy commander of the Azov Battalion Vadim Troyan a “share” in the Arey Engineering Group LLC for his commercial enterprise: the Strategic Facilities Security Section of the State Security Service Department of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Ukraine. On February 8, 2017, Vadim Troyan became Ukraine’s Deputy Minister of Internal Affairs.
Since then, Svetlana Zvarich’s company has had problems. Azov militants seized production facilities, and they took the Azovets experimental tank, which the Arey Engineering Group designed, to their base near Mariupol. At the same time, engineering workers and S. Zvarich herself began to receive death threats. Appeals to the police have given no results.
“Indeed, why should the National Police be possibly responsive if Vadim Troyan has been its First Deputy since March 8, 2016, and acting head since November 14, 2016? Can he be the one to appeal? Troyan was later promoted and became Deputy Minister of Internal Affairs in February last year,” Life’s correspondent Vladislav Maltsev is surprised with the businesswoman’s naivety.
Svetlana Zvarich and her Charity Fund for Educational Innovation participated in supplies of small arms, vehicles and military equipment to the Azov Battalion in 2014. In 2014-2016 the Fund provided Azov with a $2 million worth of various necessary goods.
