The fifth president of Ukraine and leader of European Solidarity party Petro Poroshenko is summoned to the State Investigation Bureau on May 29 in two cases at once. This was reported by the Bureau’s press service on its Facebook page.
“Due to the non-appearance on May 26, Poroshenko is once again summoned in the case of the movement of 43 paintings across the customs border at 11:00 on May 29,” the message reads.
On the same day, at 12:00, he is summoned as a witness "on the fact of possible illegal use of special technical means of obtaining information that could cause significant harm to state interests." This is related to his conversation with former US Vice President Joseph Biden.

They discussed, particularly, the resignation of Prosecutor-General Viktor Shokin. It was the issue of the recording of the talk of Poroshenko and Kerry dated December 3, 2015.
