The newly appointed top prosecutor Yuriy Lutsenko is able to protect the prosecutor’s office from political influence, President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko stated while presenting his ally as the new chief of prosecution.

“Some are trying to gain political capital by criticizing the prosecutor's office and the President. Others dream of turning prosecution into a stock company, where every political force would have a quota, something like an indulgence of past and future sins. I want to emphasize, that top prosecutor Yuriy Lutsenko has no and will have no obligations before any political forces”, - President said.

Poroshenko added, that a “political heavyweight” like Lutsenko will manage to save prosecution from political influence.
