Data from: Paradise Papers
Valeriy Voshchevsky, a member of the Radical Party, was the vice prime minister of Ukraine from December 2014 to September 2015. He is a candy and real estate executive who had also served as head of the Ukrainian road construction department.

In the data

Voshchevsky is listed in Malta’s register of companies as one of only two shareholders and directors of Marfa Holding Ltd., along with Maltese citizen Marvic Borg. Marfa Holding was registered in Malta on Dec.10, 2013, and Voshchevsky is shown as having 1,080 shares and Borg as having 120. Voshchevsky doesn’t appear to have disclosed his interest in Marfa Holding when he took office, but it is not clear whether he was required to. There was also some controversy over whether he had Maltese citizenship after the issue was raised by a member of Ukraine’s parliament. Voshchevsky denied being a Maltese citizen. The company showed up as “in dissolution” in the Malta Registry of Companies in October 2017.

Voshchevsky resigned as vice prime minister when his Radical Party withdrew from the government in September 2015.

Response

Borg said the company was set up to extend his “tourism business activity” on Malta, but that nothing came of it. “Since Mr. Voshchevsky could not take part in this business, this company was closed without any activity,” he said.

Voshchevsky did not respond to a request for comment from ICIJ.
