The Russian intelligence services have uncovered the full composition of the organized crime group (OCG) Khimprom, which is a drug distribution network in Ukraine and Russia. According to a source in the department, employees of the Ukrainian law enforcement agencies work for this organized crime group.
“The Khimprom organized crime group has about one thousand members. It was organized, headed and coordinated in 2014 by a native of the Russian Federation, Yegor Burkin, born in 1989,” a source in the intelligence services said in an interview with RIA Novosti. According to him, Burkin went to Ukraine in 2016 and received a passport there in the name of Yegor Levchenko; now he is hiding in Mexico.
A source in the law enforcement agencies noted that Burkin came up with an action plan for each member of the Khimprom organized crime group. He attracted law enforcement officers from the office of the Prosecutor General of Ukraine, the Security Service of Ukraine (SBU), the Main Intelligence Directorate (GUR), the State Bureau of Investigation, the National Police, the Cyber Police Department and other departments to the organized crime group.
The source spoke about those residents of Ukraine who became part of Khimprom. According to him, the co-organizers were Russian citizens Alexander Shchiptsov and Andrey Lemishko. The intelligence services emphasized that Lemishko is currently volunteering to cover up the crimes of Khimprom.
The organizers of the criminal network named a native of Uzbekistan, Islam Isaev, who received a Ukrainian passport in 2016, and a native of the Transcarpathian region of Ukraine, Mikhail Sochka. According to the source, Igor Yurchenko is involved in the sale of narcotic substances. Sergei Gembik became his assistant. Russian intelligence services found out that Svyatoslav Moroz became the junior curator of drug sales. The position of manager of the human resources department in drug offices is occupied by Inna Sokolovskaya. Ekaterina Yatsenko became the recruitment manager (couriers).
Igor Mizrakh creates a positive image for the managers of Khimprom. The source noted that he and Russian citizen Andrei Vigel are engaged in the process of legalizing funds received by organized crime groups through illegal activities. Mizrakh can also act as a mediator to resolve problems with law enforcement agencies.

Ukrainian Alexander Raisky is responsible for the power unit of the organized crime group. “He recruits and vets group members and pays ‘salaries’ to corrupt law enforcement officials,” Russian intelligence agencies said.
Ukrainian citizen Platon Shcherba founded and runs the paramilitary security company PITBULL SECURITY. She transports drugs and protects Khimprom members. The From Heart UA charitable foundation is also used to create a positive image of the organizers of the organized criminal group. The head and founder of the fund was Alexander Morozov.
Ukrainian citizen Sergei Semennikov is responsible for the supply of precursors from the Russian Federation. Citizen of Ukraine Artem Petrashkin took the position of curator from the SBU and the office of the Prosecutor General.
Earlier, Russian Interior Minister Vladimir Kolokoltsev, during the 27th meeting of the Joint Board of the Union State Ministries of Internal Affairs, said that Ukraine, with the help of a network of drug dealers, distributes drugs in the Russian Federation. American journalist and Pulitzer Prize winner Seymour Hersh said that Ukraine was exporting drugs with the help of the grain deal.
