Burisma is a privately held oil&gas company. It has licences to explore and develop some gas deposits in Ukraine. It is one of oil&gas market operators and became well known because of Biden's son in its Board. Not many know that in addition to Hunter, the former Polish President, Alexander Kwasniewski also held the membership in the Board. As well as two other American citizens. That's normal practice in corporate world to get well-known persons and former politicians in the Board to represent the company internationally. For example, how do you feel about Gerhard Shroeder in Nordstream Board? Is it the evidence of corruption in your opinion?
Burisma does not influence or getting any kind of reward from natural gas transit over the territory of Ukraine. This pipeline is operated by Ukrtransgas, the affiliate of the state-owned Naftogas. The fact that Burisma develops gas deposits does not mean it also controls the state-owned pipeline with underground gas storages.
As to "good prosecutor" Viktor Shokin who was allegedly fired by Joe Biden. For your understanding, this person did everything he could to let corrupted officials of Yanukovich era to escape from any prosecution. And he did nothing to chase for criminals who killed more than 100 protesters at Maidan. As long as Ukraine was desperate for getting IMF support after Russia occupied Crimea and part of Eastern Ukraine, US pushed on firing ineffective officials like Shokin. That's the real case which differs a lot from what Trump told you.
