Fifth Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko, who is on a "diplomatic tour", said he would return to Ukraine on January 17, he states on his Facebook page.

According to Poroshenko, upon arrival he wants to meet with the Prosecutor General of Ukraine.

"I am returning not to defend myself from Zelensky, but to defend Ukraine from incompetent leadership and external aggression. From attempts by green kleptocrats to build an authoritarian regime and suppress the opposition, as has happened in Belarus, Russia and Kazakhstan. And how Yanukovych tried in vain to do in Ukraine," the ex-president added.

As it was reported on December 20, the State Bureau of Investigations has notified Petro Poroshenko, the fifth president of Ukraine of a suspicion of high treason. The fifth president is suspected of supplying coal from the temporarily occupied areas of Donbas in 2014-2015.

On December 24, the Office of the Prosecutor General has approved a request to impose a measure of restraint on the fifth President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko in the form of arrest with the possibility of bail of UAH one billion ($36,609,354).

Later, a prosecutor has withdrawn the petition to apply a preventive measure in the form of detention against the suspected ex-president Petro Poroshenko from Kyiv's Pechersky district court. However, the Security Service of Ukraine denied it, in spite of the court's decision.

It is worth noting that Poroshenko went on a "diplomatic tour" just before the announcement of suspicion. The fifth president went to Turkey and then intends to visit Poland.
