– the President of the Khmelnytskyi Court of Appeal
According to the analysis of our partners
, Serhiy Bolotin built his career thanks to a lustrated member of the Yanukovych-era High Qualification Commission of Judges (HQCJ), Anatoliy Martsynkevych, who was the one to distribute the pre-agreed list of candidates among the Congress delegates. And it was Bolotin who replaced Martsynkevych as the President of the Court of Appeal of Khmelnytskyi when he resigned.
Despite a salary of UAH 200,000 per month, Bolotin privatized a state-owned apartment in 2016. At the time of receiving this apartment from the state, the judge already had another apartment, registered owner of which is his mother. In 2019, the judge sold a privatized apartment for UAH 408,000, and in 2020 bought a house for 2.7 mln hryvnia.
