Moshe Pleads Guilty To Immigration Fraud Using Blog Posts Ghost Written In Ukraine

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon Maxwell book
BBC - Honduras - CIA Trial book - NY Mag

SDNY COURTHOUSE, Oct 31 –    Yuri Moshe was charged with others with immigration fraud through "Russian America" with offices in Brooklyn and Manhattan, in a case Inner City Press has been covering. 

 Moshe and his co-defendants filed false asylum claims based on their clients blog posts and political opinions. But, the indictment alleged, the clients "did not have the desire, topical knowledge, journalistic ability and/or technical expertise to write blogposts."

So Moshe referred them to Tymur Shcherbyna, a Ukraine-based purported journalist, to ghost-write them. 

 On October 31, 2022, U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Magistrate Judge Barbara C. Moses held a change of plea proceeding. 

   Moshe pled guilty to count 1 of the superseding indictment, Conspiracy to Commit Immigration Fraud. It will now be up to District Judge J. Paul Oetken to accept the plea, or not. There are five other co-defendants.

The case is US v. Moshe, et al., 21-cr-92 (Oetken / Moses)
