Ukrainian MP Serhiy Leshchenko, who joined the team of Volodymyr Zelensky will be summoned for an interview at Prosecutor General's Office. Leshchenko may get a notice of suspicion, for he may be involved in disclosing the classified information regarding the black cash of Party of Regions. Prosecutor General Yuriy Lutsenko said that at a briefing.

'He will be asked questions, and perhaps given notice of suspicion in disclosing the data of the pre-trial investigation on the so-called black cash of the Party of Regions, which led to interference with the American election, launched from the Ukrainian territory. Everyone has to be held accountable for his deeds', Lutsenko said.

Prosecutor marks that the reporters can't be held responsible for disclosing information. 'As an MP, Mr. Leshchenko will be. Either he points at the person who fed him this information, or the responsibility will be his own', he said.

Lutsenko also said canceling the visit of Rudy Giuliani to Ukraine is not a 'common event'', and it needs special attention to be paid.

'It's not about some fancy canceling the visit of a U.S. Lawyer. It's an important event. I really hope the Ukrainian political environment will show the state-based approach, welcoming Mr. Giuliani as Ukraine's friend who helped a lot and will keep helping our bilateral relations', Lutsenko said.
