The previous year had been marked with agrarian fights for the farmers of Ternopil region. Almost in every village where “Mriya” Agricultural Holding takes the shares on lease had a place general community meeting.

The “Mriya” representatives insistently proposed the farmers to renew agreements for newly created legal company “Mriya Farming Ternopil” LLC prior to the stated maturity. Exactly the Agricultural Holding management does not try to hide this fact as well as it is said during the meeting with shareholders that the kind of 70% agreements seem already been renewed for the present time.

And there is a question why should exist such a rush? Just because virtually all land lease agreements in Agricultural Holding “Mriya” have the expiration date in 2018-2019 years. Why don’t they want to propose farmers to renew agreements for that exact above mentioned date?

The tricky management have a simple explanation of reason to renew agreements for the simple workers and farmers as follows: not so long before there was created a new company and now for combining all legal bodies into the one as well as not to meet any conflict of laws it becomes necessary to renew agreement prior to the stated maturity.

Local investigative reporters came to the decision to examine more deeply the situation occurred. Showing interest and studying the document piles it became clearly understandable that the present-day “newly created” company “Mriya Farming Ternopil” is incorporated in Cyprus, that is to say this island is a word-synonym of the offshore accounts where “gray” cash flows of companies which do not want to pay taxes in Ukraine flow in together.

It proves that “Mriya Farming Ternopil” LLC was registered as far as for the date of September, 1, 2015. That means more than one year before. So this company for sure can not be stated as “newly created” one as it is told in community meetings for the naive farmers.

Among the “Mriya Farming Ternopil” LLC founders there is “Mriya Trading” LLC which is included into the notorious “Mriya” Agricultural Holding. But the ultimate beneficiary is Christakis Iakovides, a certain Cyprus citizen who has a place of residence the Republic of Cyprus, Limassol city, Nikou Eggonopoulou Street, build. 10-F. Interesting that “Mriya Farming Ternopil” LLC has the same legal address.

However the business address of “Mriya Farming Ternopil” LLC as well as “Mriya” Agricultural Holding is the same, as follows: Ternopil city, Mazepa Street, 10. Such a whimsical coincidence…

Interesting also is the fact that authorized capital stock for such a large enterprise that has plans to cultivate and reap harvest for almost half of Ternopil region land area is just 1,000 UAH…

This is equal to 35 USD… Ukrainian black earth is estimated for such a low price by “Mriya” businessmen-moneymakers with the Cyprus registration.

One more suspicious fact is that “Mriya Farming Ternopil” LLC have no any paid up worker…

Thus the offshore company without workers that has the authorized capital stock of 35 USD and dodge taxes for the Ukrainian budget renews and carries almost all land lease agreements with the shareholders of Ternopil region…
