At the moment of election as Member f Parlaiment, he was the CEO of Ukrainian Marketing Group LLC. For the period until 25 November 2014 Gerasimov was also a co-founder of this company together with Liakh Serhiy Vitaliyovych. After 25 November 2014 Artur Gerasimov was replaced as a co-founder by Gerasimova Violetta Serhiivna.

Until 25 November 2014 Artur Gerasimov was a co-founder of RTRI-RETAIL TRACKING RESEARCH INTERNATIONAL LLCFOM-UKRAINE LLCCOMCON-UKRAINE LLC, COMCON PHARMA-UKRAINE LLC. In the first two cases shares in statutory capital were transfered to Gerasimova Violetta Serhiivna, in the last two to the wife Bukhalova Natalia Olexandrivna

According to the information from the web-site of Ukrainian Marketing Group, the CEO of "Ukrainian Marketing Group is Bukhalova Natalia Olexandrivna, she is also the lector at business-school International Management Institute-Kyiv.

Together with Gerasimov co-founders of FOM-Ukraine LLC were Serhiy LiakhOlexander Bukhalov and the Russian Institute of Foundation "Public opinion" LLC. The head and a co-founder of  Institute of Foundation “Public Opinion” LLC  is Oslon Olexander Anatoliyovych, other co-founders Churykov Oleksiy Volodymyrovych, Akulova Oksana Ilariivna, and Petrenko Olena Serafymivna .

Oslon Olexander Anatoliyovych is the founder of the Foundation “Public Opinion”, Russian organization created in 1992 and dealing with sociological research, supports current authorities. In 1996 the Foundation became the basic sociological organization of the election headquarters of B.M.Eltsyn. The foundation had the same role in Putin’s headquarters in 1999-2000 and in 2004. Among the clients are Rosbank, Sberbank, Bank “Russia”, Yandex, Mail.ru, innovation center “Skolkovo”, Roskino, Renaissance Insurance, government of Moscow region, and State commission on development of Arctic of Russian Federation. Churykov Olexiy and Olena Petrenko had the leading positions in the same foundation.

On the territory of Ukraine FOM-Ukraine LLC was doing many researches of public opinion, including the exit polls, and was making ratings of political parties. Some media accused FOM-Ukraine LLC that they traditionally exaggerated the results of polls in favor of the Party of Regions. Publications in press about their activity: No.1No.2No.3No.4No.5.

On 25 November 2014, before Gerasimov was elected to the Parliament, FOM-Ukraine LLC was renamed to Ukrainian Institute of Public Opinion Research LLC. Russian Institute of Foundation “Public Opinion” terminated being its founder.

Until 25 November 2014 the co-founder of Comcon-Ukraine LLC besides Gerasimov was the Russian Comcon-Amatheus LTD (possibly renamed at the moment; co-founders of Comcon Pharma-Ukraine LLC were citizens of Russia Chilingarian Olexander Georgiyovych and Feldman Oleg Petrovych. The head of Comcon Pharma-Ukraine LLC is Matveychenko Olexander Vasyloyovych who is also an assistant to Gerasimov in the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine on voluntary basis.

Serhiy Liakh and Violetta Gerasimova are together the founders of another company - UMG International LLC.

Besides that, Artur Gerasimov is Secretary of the Supervisory Board of a civil organization DONBAS PROGRAM FOR PROMOTING REDEMPTION AND INTEGRATION OF THE EASTERN UKRAINE (NGO “Donbas”). Head of the Supervisory Board of this organization is a Member of Parliament Nedava Oleg Anatoliyovych. According to information on the website, aim of the organization is the introduction of measures for restoration and reconstruction of infrastructure objects destroyed or damaged as a result of the conflict in Donetsk and Luhansk regions, support of entrepreneurs, increase of employment in Donetsk and Luhansk oblasts.

According to information from the web-site of Oleg Nedava, public organization “Donbas” takes part in fundraising for the development of Donetsk and Luhansk regions through investment and grant projects financed by European donors. In particular, it is indicated that: “Public organization “Donbas” has received positive experience of development of public initiatives, provision of support to internally displaced people and residents affected by military actions in the ATO zone. In Sloviansk, it works under a grant program of the European Union “Support of Communities affected by the conflict in Ukraine”. Under implementation, there is the project “Housing for IDPs” which foresees the modernization of two dormitories with the budget of more than 800 thousand EUR”.

According to the information of journalists of the program “Slidstvo.Info”, with support of the program “Support of Communities affected by the conflict in Ukraine” the project “Housing for IDPs” has indeed started the reconstruction of two dormitories, but the works have not been finished by contractor Financial Construction Company “Luch” LLC. In general, this company has a bad reputation (information from the register of court decisions - No. 1No. 2). Mayor of Sloviansk Oleg Zontov informed the journalists in the beginning of the project that soon after receiving the grant representatives of public organization “Donbas” came to him and offered cooperation saying “You don’t have enough economic experience, we will help you,”  recolled Oleg Zontov. “We will give you necessary people, they will select necessary contractors. Of course, I rejected their offer. This was not a direct offer: here is the money, take it. It was veiled. Meaning, you select necessary contractors and everyone will be happy”.

 

Oleg Nedava became Member of Parliament by winning the elections in a single-mandate constituency No. 53, before that he was the Director for Foreign Economic Activity of Karpatybudinvest LLC.  Karpatybudinvest LLC, when Nedava was in office, was affiliated with the former MP and the member of Party of Regions Yuriy Ivaniushenko (through wife and daughter).  In December 2016, Oleg Nedava made a video-statement regarding accusations against him for cooperation with the former member of Party of Regions Yuriy Ivaniushenko. He said that neither his business nor his political activity is  connected with Ivaniushenko. Along with this, Nedava protected Ivaniushenko having said that accusation against Ivaniushenko are groundless and have no evidence.   

Two assistants of Artur Gerasimov – Grinenko Artem Olexandrovych and Kosynskiy Roman Valeriyovych – have one by one been working as a.i. Head of the Board of Automobile Roads of Ukraine SJSC. Grinenko Artem Olexandrovych was a.i. Head of the Board of Automobile Roads of Ukraine SJSC from 18.07.2016 till 13.06.2017 . Kosynskiy Roman Valeriyovych has taken this position since 26.07.2017 . 

Gerasimov’s assistants Popov Serhiy LeonidovychRezanov Nazar Stanislavovych, Matveychenko Olexander VasylyovychRzhavskiy Volodymyr IvanovychScherbachenko Viktor ViktorovychNesterov Serhiy Yuriyovych were trustees of the candidate to the post of representative of  the President Petro Poroshenko in Donetsk region. 

Another assistant to Artur Gerasimov, Fil Serhiy Olexandrovych, has been the Deputy Head of Luhansk Regional State Administration (regional military and civil administration) since July 2017. During the parliamentary elections of 2014, Serhiy Fil was running for elections as member of the Block Petra Poroshenka at the single-mandate constituency No.112. Media call Serhiy Fil a political technologist who developed a system of bribing electorate at elections to the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine in 2012 in Donetsk region, where candidates were Artur Gerasimov and Serhiy Shakhov (more details below).

Before becoming a Member of Parliament in 2014, in 2012 Gerasimov tried to be elected to the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine from the majority constituency No.51 in Horlivka, Donetsk region. Agitation materials of the election campaign of 2012 read that Gerasimov belonged to “Serhiy Shakhov team”, meaning Shakhov Serhiy Volodymyrovych – a Member of Parliament, member of deputy group People’s Will (example of agitation materials No. 1No. 2No. 3). 

Media inform that during elections of 2012 Artur Shakhov was bribing voters. Media say that all members of “Shakhov team” gave to voters at their constituencies special “membership tickets” that could be received only upon showing passport with registration. “Tickets” had 30 coupons that could be exchanged for 50 UAH each. Having received a ticket, voter had to come with it on demonstrations organized by Piddubniy and Gerasimov (or another candidate of “Shakhov team”) and provide coupons to “controllers” to exchange them for money. Only one coupon could be exchanged at a time. According to the website Gorlovka.ua, the general number of those who received such a “material assistance” in constituencies No. 51 and No. 53 amounted to 20 000 persons.

Another candidate from "Shakhov team" in 2012 was Olexander Bukhalov, who is mentioned above as the co-owner of FOM Ukraine LLC. Olexander Bukhalov, allegedly, is the father of Gerasimov’s wife Ms. Natalia Bukhalova and a father-in-law of Gerasimov.

Responsible for security of Artur Gerasimov and of another candidate from “Shakhov team” Volodymyr Piddubniy during elections of 2012 to the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine was Ihor Bezler – one of the leaders of the terrorist organization “Donetsk People’s Republic”. More details:

 

Artur Gerasimov together with the Member of Parliament Maksym Burbak is the author of the draft law on amendments to some laws of Ukraine regarding provision of parliamentary control No.7362 of 06.12.2017. Draft law foresees the possibility of the Parliament to express Distrust to the Director of the National Anti-Corruption Bureau of Ukraine (this issue can be initiated by 1/3 of members of Parliament, President or the Cabinet of Ministers). Besides that, the draft law foresees more reasons to adopt a decision on discharge of NABU Director, i.e, bringing him to administrative responsibility for corruption offence; draft law enlarges the scope of issues that can become the subject of audit of NABU and adds provisions on “inspection of legality of special investigative measures, pre-trial investigation conducted by NABU and its observance of human rights and freedom”, meaning de facto giving the auditors functions of prosecutors in the case. EU Delegation to Ukraine was greatly worried by the draft law and stated, that adoption of the draft law violates obligations of Ukraine under the Visa Liberalization Action Plan.
