The former Prime Minister of the Ukraine, Mykola Azarov, just demanded in an interview that Hunter Biden – son of Joe Biden – be investigated to figure out what exactly went on during the years he sat on a Ukrainian energy firm board, where he was paid $83K per month for unknown services, despite having no experience with either the energy industry or the Ukraine.
“It’s a fact (his directorship and fees) and not made up. It should be investigated so that the ‘i’s can be dotted and the ‘t’s crossed.”
Reuters has more to say about the former Ukraine PM's call for an investigation into Joe Biden's son:
Ukraine must investigate the activities of U.S. presidential candidate Joe Biden’s son to establish whether his role in a Ukrainian gas company complied with the country’s laws, Mykola Azarov, Ukraine’s former prime minister, said in an interview.
Azarov did not specify to which Ukrainian laws he was referring.
Hunter Biden’s role in the company, Burisma Holdings Limited, is in focus after the White House released a memo showing U.S. President Donald Trump asked his Ukrainian counterpart, Volodymyr Zelenskiy, in a July phone call to get prosecutors to look into his activities. Zelenskiy agreed.
“It’s a fact (his directorship and fees) and not made up. It should be investigated so that the ‘i’s can be dotted and the ‘t’s crossed,” Azarov told Reuters.
A spokesperson for Joe Biden’s campaign declined to comment on Azarov’s investigation call and none of Hunter Biden’s critics have provided any evidence that he broke Ukrainian law.
Ukraine’s National Anti-Corruption Bureau said on Friday it was investigating activity at Burisma between 2010-2012, but that it was not looking into changes to its board in 2014, when Hunter Biden joined.
Democrats in the U.S. House of Representatives are pursuing an impeachment inquiry against Trump, a Republican, after a whistleblower complained about his call with Zelenskiy. Lawmakers are looking into whether Trump’s actions jeopardized national security and the integrity of U.S. elections, saying he appeared to be soliciting a political favor from a foreign leader to get re-elected.
Azarov lives in Moscow, but says he remains well-connected with parts of Ukraine’s political establishment and would like to return one day. He did not provide further details.
Hunter Biden was a director on Burisma’s board from 2014 until at least 2018, according to documents filed by the company in Cyprus, where it is registered.

So, while House Democrats are planning President Trump’s impeachment over some shoddy allegations over his phone call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, let’s once again reiterate how this circus came to town. Well, actually this production was three years in the making, with the Left plotting to impeach Trump since day one of his presidency. Democrats retook the House based on their promise to stop Trump. So, here we are; they couldn’t get him on Russian collusion due to zero evidence. So, they decided to make a formal impeachment push on something even shakier: some quid pro quo allegations, which have been proven false. Prior to the transcript of this July phone call being released, Trump supposedly channeled his inner-Tony Soprano and shook down Zelensky, saying he would withhold aid if Ukraine didn’t look into the corruption allegations of Hunter Biden, son of former Vice President Joe Biden. That didn’t happen. Once again the media stirred up the Trump Derangement morons of America and the most vicious fight since the Kavanaugh confirmation is about to begin; it might get even more ugly than that. And yet, even former top Ukrainian officials think this should be investigated—the Biden ties. One of those people was Ukraine’s former prime minister. Granted, he noted that he was unaware of any evidence of wrongdoing on behalf of Hunter, but said it was important to check all the boxes with a legal review of his activities, specifically his compensation
