Ukraine opened criminal case against former Italian PM Berlusconi
The politician violated the order of entry in Crimea, the temporarily occupied territory of Ukraine
Criminal proceedings on former Prime Minister of Italy Silvio Berlusconi had been instituted on charges of violating order of entry in the temporarily occupied territory of Ukraine, Krymr.
This year in September Silvio Berlusconi visited Crimea, which is temporalily annexed by Russian Federation, and met with a good friend of him Vladimir Putin. Thus, the actions of the former Italian Prime Minister, who visited the Crimea, fall under this article, as stated Ukrainian MP Heorhiy Lohvynskyi. "We declare that, regardless of status and position, we will prosecute everyone, and Berlusconi is not an exception. I'll demonstrate the documents from the Prosecutor General's Office and the Security Service of Ukraine that criminal proceedings on the territory of Ukraine is opened against Berlusconi under Article 332, Part 1, and Article 191 - "taking the property," said Lohvynskyi.
The MP expressed hope that other foreign policy and deputies "will find a way to recognize that a violation of the Criminal Code of Ukraine is unacceptable." Earlier, the Ukrainian Security Service has banned Berlusconi from entry to the territory of Ukraine.
