Foreword

Dozens of Donetsk clan families with ties to disgraced former President Viktor Yanukovych are hunkered down in Monaco while their factories churn out god knows what in Kremlin-controlled Donbas — that’s the pitch for this evolving story about two Ukrainian businessmen who became fabulously wealthy and legalized their family’s fortune in Europe and North America.

Mykola Yankovsky was among 28 members of disgraced former President Viktor Yanukovych’s hunting club. He is pictured in the middle of this photo collage shaking hands with disgraced former head of Ukraine’s state arms manufacturer Ukroboronprom Dmytro Salamatin.
