Ukraine’s General Prosecutor’s Office handed in a note of suspicion to Opposition Bloc MP Mykhailo Dobkin. MP talked to the journalists on air of 112 Ukraine TV channel.
“I was explained the rights, duties, I was handed over the suspicion note, I signed it, now I'm going to the first questioning. It is unclear when there hearing will start, but not today definitely. They said, they will not detain me. I do not understand why Verkhovna Rada voted for it. It’s a waste of time and paper. The hearing can be either tomorrow, or on Monday, or Tuesday, I do not influence it. In court, I will come to every investigative action and not leave the country without permission, or bail. I also want to say that I will defend myself not only in Ukraine, but also outside the country. I have already received several proposals of lawyers in Europe. I will also try to contact lawyers from the United States,” he said.
As it was reported earlier Ukrainian Parliament approved bringing MP Dobkin to justice. Former mayor of Kharkiv city faced charges with several tough crimes, including kidnapping, power abuse and creating a criminal organization.
