The fifth President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko failed to come for questioning at the Prosecutor General's Office as a witness in the case on Ilovaisk tragedy. Ukrainian News reports this with reference to the press service of the Chief Military Prosecutor's Office.
The reason for Poroshenko's absence was not specified.
The Chief Military Prosecutor's Office holds pre-trial criminal investigation into the planning, preparation and waging of an aggressive war against Ukraine by the Russian authorities. Prosecutor's Office investigates activities aimed at changing the boundaries of the territory and the state border, as well as commission of other crimes that led to the death of people, temporary occupation parts of the territory of Ukraine and other grave consequences.
Petro Poroshenko was summoned for questioning as a witness in the said criminal proceedings.
As we reported earlier, State Bureau of Investigation (SBI) filed the draft suspicion to the Prosecutor General’s Office of Ukraine toward Petro Poroshenko and submissions to the Verkhovna Rada on the provision of the permission for his prosecution, according to Poroshenko's lawyer.
It is worth mentioning that the ex-President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko did not come for the questioning appointed by the Prosecutor General's Office again.
