Temporary Investigative Commission of the Verkhovna Rada in Wagner mercenaries’ case does not intend to summon President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky and the Chair of his Office Andriy Yermak to its meeting. The head of the commission Mariana Bezuhla said this at a briefing on September 13, as Gordon agency reports.
"If we talk about the Supreme Commander-in-Chief, the Temporary Investigative Commission does not have the right to summon him, since he is an inviolable person," Bezuhla answering why Zelensky and Yermak were not heard at the meetings of the commission.
As for the Chairman of the President's Office, the lawmaker explained that he was not summoned to the commission, since he "is not a person authorized to make decisions."
At the same time, according to Bezuhla, the Investigative Commission intends to hear the ex-head of the Main Directorate of Intelligence of the Ministry of Defence of Ukraine Vasyl Burba regarding the investigation into the detention of terrorists from the Wagner PMC, as Interfax-Ukraine reports.
They have already tried to summon Burba to the commission, but he has not yet responded.
