By versions of the investigationin 2015, Medvedchuk, together with another deputy Taras Kozak (he is now abroad), transferred to Russia the entire material and documentary base on the Glubokaya oil and gas area with resources worth over UAH 38 billion.

In 2012, New Projects LLC received permission to use the subsoil in this area from Medvedchuk’s orbit. After the occupation of Crimea, the company was re-registered under Russian law. Illegal mining was stopped by the fact that the territory of the site bordered on a military training ground, and the company could not obtain a permit.

The second episode is the transfer by Medvedchuk to Kozak in Russia in 2020 of secret information about a hidden military unit of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, its combat training, and personnel.

The third episode is the development of the anti-Ukrainian project “Promin”, aimed at creating a network of influence among Ukrainian labor migrants working in Russia.
