Andriy Verevskyy is the founder and board chairman of Kernel, a Ukrainian diversified agriculture company. Verevskyy was a member of Ukraine’s parliament from 2002 until 2013, when a court stripped him of his seat for simultaneously holding public office and running a commercial business.
Leaked emails and documents from Appleby show that Verevskyy is the beneficial owner of an Isle of Man company, AV Aviation Ltd. The company is the registered owner of a Dassault Falcon 2000 private jet, which was bought for $25,000,000 in August 2014 using a combination of Verevskyy’s personal wealth and a loan from BNP Paribas.
Verevskyy did not respond to reporters’ requests for comment.
