People's Deputy Andriy Artemenko came in for questioning to the Prosecutor General. He said this in comments to journalists.

"I am in Kyiv and I'll go in for questioning, based on press reports, because I have not received the summons. I guess, I received them on Monday at 10 am in order to cancel my press conference, which is scheduled for 11 am. I am grateful to the press that you follow this matter", he said.

According to him, the media "pulled" only one sentence of his plan - Crimea rent.

"The American press is not interested in Ukraine, they are interested in ratings, discrediting the administration of Trump", he added.

People's Deputy also denied that he went to Moscow.

Recall, MP from the Radical Party Andriy Artemenko developed the concept of making peace between Russia and Ukraine, and the lifting of sanctions from Moscow. His plan was transferred to an adviser of US President Donald Trump, Michael Flynn shortly before his retirement.

He suggested the withdrawal of Russian troops from the east of Ukraine and conducting a nationwide referendum to submit Crimea to Russia for lease by 50 or 100 years.

In addition, Artemenko allegedly provided evidence of corrupt activities of the President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko, which included the names of the companies and the number of bank transfers. In his opinion, this should help to shift Poroshenko from his post and to bring the new government to Kyiv that will be not so hostile towards Russia.

Radical Party of Oleh Lyashko decided to exclude Andriy Artemenko from the faction on February 20.

Parliamentary Speaker Andriy Parubiy announced the expulsion of MP Andriy Artemenko from Radical Party political faction the next day.
