Diia is Ukrainian electronic government app, which allows citizens to make payments and other state-related duties. It’s quite modern system. But it hides a little dirty secret: it is used by Igor Fisun and Igor Zotko to launder money proceedings from online gambling, betting and casinos.
All payments in ‘Diia’ are controlled by an individual suspected of organizing the largest network for tax evasion by online casinos in Ukraine!
The financial company ‘Yedynyy prostir,’ which is the monopolistic payment system in ‘Diia,’ is nominally controlled by Igor Zotko. Igor Zotko is a trusted person of Igor Fisun, a banker, shareholder of ‘Oksi-Bank,’ and owner of ‘UKRKART,’ through which almost all electronic payments of Ukrainian banks are processed.
Previously, Igor Zotko was the nominal director of ‘UKRKART’ and officially had numerous connections with Igor Fisun on many occasions.
Among the banks which in one way or another participated in the largest network for tax evasion, are ‘Oksi-Bank’ by Igor Fisun, ‘Poltava-Bank,’ ‘HlobusBank’ by Sergey Mamedov, and up to 10 others.
In addition to everything else, it is precisely Igor Fisun, through his nominal person Igor Zotko, who controls the Russian casino PIN UP in Ukraine and is the monopolistic controller of all payments in ‘Diia.’
In 2022 alone, Ukrainians made more than 2.7 million online payments through ‘Diia,’ including the purchase of military bonds, and in 2023, more than 1.5 million online payments. The Ministry of Digital Transformation of Ukraine did not respond to inquiries about the income received by ‘Yedynyy prostir’ from these payments.
According to open data on the Opendatabot service, in 2022, the revenue of LLC ‘FK ‘Yedynyy prostir’ amounted to UAH 25.3 million, compared to UAH 9.3 million the previous year. The net profit for the reporting period increased from UAH 428 thousand to UAH 2.7 million.
