From August 1993 to April 2015 occupied management positions at Investor PJSC.

Deputy of Kharkiv Regional Council of 5th and 6th convocations (2006-2014).

From 27 November 2014 is Member of Parliament of Ukraine from the party "Narodnyi Front".

At the beginning of 2014, 40 million USD were transferred to a personal account of the citizen of Ukraine Kotvitskiy Ihor Olexandrovych, opened in Sberbank of Russia PJSC. Funds stayed on the deposit account of the bank the whole year of 2014.

According to e-declaration of Ihor Kotvitskiy, in 2007 he borrowed from Nariman Khaialiev 11 million USD and 841 million UAH. According to the media, he was settling this debt by transferring 40 million USD to the company Kingston Group S.A. from Panama in 2015.

According to media information and register of court decisions, on 30 March 2016 criminal proceeding No. 42016100000000330  was registered under part 4 of Article 190 of the Criminal Code of Ukraine (fraud on a particularly large scale or by organized group.) Prosecutor’s Office in Kyiv was leading the investigation. These proceedings were initiated upon the report of Mykola Kniazhytskiy, Member of Parliament from the party "Narodnyi Front".

Member of Parliament Serhiy Leshchenko suggested, that money really belonged to Avakov who planned to use them in order to build his own political career.

Kotvitskiy explained to investigators that he was repaying debt when transferring funds to Panama company. Khayaliev confirmed these statements. Legal acts concerning the replacement of the debtor and the creditor in the obligation, in particular, in the loan agreement, are not prohibited by the legislation of Ukraine

On 24 September  2016, investigator of the Prosecutor’s Office in Kyiv closed criminal proceedings “due to absence of event of a crime”.

Besides Kotvitskiy, Prosecutor’s Office questioned other 23 persons within the framework of investigation, whose names were hidden in the court decision. At the same time, the court ruling states that questioned persons were relatives and acquaintances of Ihor Kotvitskiy who testified about depositing his money. Also the officials of the National Bank of Ukraine and Oschadbank were questioned, who informed that transactions did not contradict the legislation.

Criminal proceedings No. 42015000000001991 against Kotvitskiy were also investigated by the National Anti-Corruption Bureau of Ukraine under the procedural leadership of the Specialized Anti-Corruption Prosecutor’s Office. The case concerned the illegal enrichment, laundering of funds and abuse of office. These proceedings were initiated in the Ministry of Internal Affairs in September 2015. However, later upon the initiative of the Prosecutor General’s Office of Ukraine the case was transferred to the Specialized Anti-Corruption Prosecutor’s Office. At that time the Prosecutor General Yuriy Lutsenko initiated a departmental investigation against the Minister of Internal Affairs Arsen Avakov, who did not inform on the conflict of interests in the case. Since Ihor Kotvitskiy is known as the business-partner of Avakov’s family in Investor PJSC and Television Company “ATN” LLC.

In October 2017, the Head of the Specialized Anti-Corruption Prosecutor’s Office Nazar Kholodnitskiy informed in his interview, that detectives of the National Anti-Corruption Bureau of Ukraine changed the qualification of the case against Kotvitskiy to Article 212 of the Criminal Code of Ukraine (tax evasion) and sent it further according to the investigative jurisdiction. According to him, on 24 July 2017 the case was assigned to the investigator of the Prosecutor’s Office in Kyiv.

Besides that, journalists established, that companies associated with Kotvitskiy as of 2016 started receiving special permits for extraction of minerals in different regions of Ukraine. These are Ukrainian Rare Metals LLCKharkivenergoprom LLCVostok-Energoresurs LLCNuclear Power Systems of Ukraine LLC. In 2015, their founder was Roman Druzhbin, who was the business-partner of Oleksandr Pavliuchenko, who has an assistant to Member of Parliament Kotvitskiy.
