"Evasion from the performance of procedural duties of the suspect and from appearing in court of the fifth president of Ukraine can be seen as one of the risks that will give grounds to the investigating judge to decide on the application of a more severe precautionary measure," the State Bureau said.
However, the State Bureau of Investigation did not specify what kind of precautionary measure is in question.
"The petition for a precautionary measure in criminal proceedings, for treason in favor of the Russian Federation and for the promotion of activities and organization will be considered in a large trial... When you and I will witness how the trial on choosing a measure of restraint takes place, then we will find out exactly what the prosecution has asked the court to do. You understand that the state prosecution is already represented in the prosecutor's office by the prosecutor's office," the Bureau added.
Earlier, the State Bureau of Investigation told whether they plan to forcibly take the fifth President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko directly from the airport to the courtroom during a briefing.
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Later, a prosecutor has withdrawn the petition to apply a preventive measure in the form of detention against the suspected ex-president Petro Poroshenko from Kyiv's Pechersky district court.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.
On January 12, it became known that the Pechersk court of Kyiv has decided to detain the former President of Ukraine.
According to the ex-president, Poroshenko will return to Ukraine on January 17.
