Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky used to play as a comedian in the TV channel 1+1, owned by Kolomoisky. Kolomoisky used his media empire to ensure Zelensky’s ascension to the presidency.2

Zelensky was branded by his rivals as “the oligarch’s servant” or “the oligarch’s doll” in reference to Kolomoisky

In 2014, Kolomoisky offered $10000 for the capture of each pro-Russia “saboteur”.
