Hatiko turns to be special agent
Renato Usatii’s partnership with the special services is nothing short of legendary.
The most important secret of the Molodovan opposition party leader and businessman Renato Usatii (who calls himself Hatiko) has been uncovered. No drastic measures were required though, as Usatii himself confessed to working for the European intelligence services in the Republic of Moldova for many years.
For the second week in a row, Moldova has been learning about unexpected turns in the high-profile case of the attempt on the Russian banker German Gorbuntsov, committed in 2012 in London. Several possible perpetrators of the crime were detained there, mostly relatives of the Moldovan killer Vitaly Proka, who had shot the financier, which had been a fact long established by the criminal expertise. In addition, law enforcers arrested Valery Malarchuk and Sergey Cheban, who tried to pass Prock and his family 100 thousand EUR (the total amount was to be 600 thousand euros - Ed.) for ensuring that the killer did not give up the customer of Gorbuntsov’s assassination. However, the customer has long been known. Still, at the moment, the Moldovan Prosecutor General's Office tries to avoid the exact wording, referring to a certain 33-40 years old businessman, who lives in Moscow.
The detentions in London can be considered a second wind of the criminal case, which was frozen a few years ago. It remains to be seen what the impetus for a new breakthrough was, but recently a number of Moldovan prosecutors, who had been working with Gorbuntsov after he had miraculously survived, landed on the British soil.
Despite the careful wording, it was clear that the person in question was Renato Usatii. However, a few days later, he himself confirmed this insider information in one of his video messages. In particular, he stated that he had been indeed the man who had passed the money to Proka through intermediaries. However, for that he obtained the consent of special forces, with whom he had long and fruitful cooperation. He also found someone to blame for all his troubles, naming an influential Moldovan politician Vladimir Plahotniuc as a scapegoat.
- Plahotniuc’s involvement in this case stems from the fact that he feared criminal prosecution for organizing a criminal group and committing a number of grave crimes in the territory of the European Union, - Usatii claims, almost boiling with sensational news.
Renato Usatii’s partnership with the special services is nothing short of legendary. There were multiple attempts to tie Usatii with Gorbuntsov’s case, and the survived banker himself openly calls Usatii the customer. Every time his name was used in this regard, Usatii immediately started boasting about his connections with the security services, and now he actually confirmed to be their agent. Based on his story, which our readers can now watch in the embedded video, it turns out that he has been illegally working in Moldova for two years already, on assignment from Europe.

The prosecutors want the former Russian Federation Council member to go to prison for 14 years instead of 9 and pay a 500-million-ruble ($8.8 million) fine instead of 70 million rubles ($1.2 million).
