A Not so Swedish Family

At first sight Misen Energy AB looks very much like a Swedish company, although the office in Gothenburg is very small.  But it’s the main shareholder of a large private Ukrainian gas company, Karpatygaz.

The Ukrainian reporter Dmytro Gnap decided to to take a closer look at its activities and owners. He ended up in a web of oligarchs, off shore companies and politicians – some of them connected to the gangster boss Semion Mogilevich who is wanted by FBI for financial crimes. Gnap also found a clear connection to the heroine from the ‘Orange Revolution’, Yulia Tymoshenko, who has introduced a law lowering the tax rate for Karpatygaz!
