Confidence in flight. Worldwide.
Ukraine is an important natural-gas and
petroleum-liquids transit country. Two
major pipeline systems carry Russian gas
through Ukraine to Western Europe.
Burisma is headed by Nikolai Zlochevskyi,
who held senior posts over natural resources,
environment and defense in Ukraine.
The company has aggressively bought up
Ukrainian oil and natural gas leases and
Hunter Biden s new company says it aims
to reduce Ukraine s dependence on Russian
gas and oil, a goal that parallels US efforts
to aid Ukraine s energy industry.
But the timing of his hiring is politically
awkward for the administration s efforts to
shore up Ukraine s pro-Western government,
and poses potential complications from
Burisma s growing energy interests and the
background of Hunter Biden s new boss,
Energy fields in pro-Russian areas
At least two oil and natural gas fields
leased by subsidiaries of Burisma are in
Ukrainian territories where pro-Russian
sentiments remain strong, according to gov-
ernment and media releases, independent
energy maps and Burisma s Web site.
One is in the breakaway Russian-backed
state of Crimea; the other is in the eastern
Ukrainian Kharkiv region.
Instability there could force the younger
Biden s new company to coordinate with
pro-Russian separatists whom the US con-
White House officials declined to com-
ment on Hunter Biden s association with
Burisma and the company s holdings in
Crimea and east Ukraine.
The vice president s spokeswoman,
Kendra Barkoff, previously said that Biden s
son is a private citizen and a lawyer, and
that Joe Biden "does not endorse any par-
ticular company and has no involvement
with this company."

Relatives rewarded for family ties
Presidents and vice presidents have long been
vexed by relatives rewarded for family ties. Political
loan troubles shadowed Vice President Richard Nixon s
brother, Donald, during the 1960 election, and Pres-
ident Jimmy Carter s brother, Billy, who accepted a
US$220,000 stipend in 1981 from Libya s Moammar
Gadhafi. In recent years, several Bush and Clinton
relatives were caught in a string of murky financial
and political dealings.
A former Washington lobbyist, the vice president s
son is effectively exempt from most rules that would
require him to describe publicly the legal work he
does on behalf of Burisma.
Gas fields in the Crimea
But Biden s company may have to deal with Ukrain-
ian enclaves that the US does not recognise diplo-
matically or are threatened by instability.
"While he s just at the beginning of his involvement
with this company, Ukraine is volatile right now and
there are all sorts of problems that might crop up
down the line," said Bill Allison, the editorial director
of the Sunlight Foundation, a nonpartisan watchdog
group. Pacheco said the company s western and east-
ern operations have been unaffected by Ukraine s
unrest but that its Crimea subsidiary is not operating
Biden a former Washington lobbyist
Hunter Biden is a managing director with Rosemont
Seneca Partners, a private equity firm, and worked
as a Washington lobbyist for seven years until his
father was elected vice president. He lobbied primarily
for colleges, hospitals and tech firms.
Pacheco said Biden s son came to Burisma s atten-
tion after he was introduced by Devon Archer, another
new Burisma board member, to Alan Apter, Burisma s
board chairman. Archer works with Hunter Biden
at Rosemont and was a top fundraiser for now-Sec-
retary of State John Kerry when Kerry ran for president
in 2004. Zlochevskyi approved Biden s hiring, Pacheco
Zlochevskyi and Burisma
Zlochevskyi, 48, worked as minister of natural
resources and environment under Yanukovych and
most recently was deputy secretary of Ukraine s
national security and defence council, which advised
Yanukovych on defense matters.
Zlochevskyi also served in the Ukrainian parliament
from 2007 to 2011 as a member of the Party of
Regions, the political party affiliated with Yanukovych
and traditionally aligned with pro-Russian interests.
Zlochevskyi s name is missing from Burisma s web
site, but financial documents in Cyprus as well as
US Securities and Exchange records show that he
owns the bulk of Burisma s shares. Zlochevskyi s
