President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky signed the submission to relieve Yuriy Lutsenko from his duties as Prosecutor General. The Parliament will consider it, said Ruslan Ryaboshapka, the Deputy Head of Presidential Administration.
Previously, the Parliament refused to support the President's submissions on firing State Security Service Head, Foreign Minister and Minister of Defense.
Recently, Ukraine’s Prosecutor General registered three criminal proceedings on preparations to fund terrorism, on preparation to obstruct the activity of Armed Forces of Ukraine and on state treason in the Unified Register of Pre-trial Investigations. He said so in his video address on Facebook.
“Today I have personally registered a high-profile case: on preparations to funding terrorism, which means actions committed to providing terrorist group financially performed with a prior agreement of a group of people. This is for those who think that it’s possible to restore trade relations with terrorist organizations, which seized Ukrainian property, state or private property, allegedly collect taxes, and we will trade with them, taking the responsibility for four billions of debts of ORDLO (Separate Districts of Donetsk and Luhansk regions, - ed.) for electricity and water,” Lutsenko said.
According to Lutsenko, another case concerns preparation to obstruct the activity of Armed Forces of Ukraine.
“And another case: on state treason, which means actions committed by a Ukrainian damaging the sovereignty, territorial integrity, immunity, defence capacity, state, economic and information security of Ukraine, assisting subversion against Ukraine,” he added.
