The President Petro Poroshenko claimed that he was pleased to hear the conviction of the statements of ‘some MPs’ by the families of the Ukrainian political prisoners. He claimed this during the meeting with the students of the National University of Ukraine as 112 Ukraine broadcasted.
‘Today I held a meeting with the relatives, parents, wives, children of the political prisoners who are in the Russian jail only for the refuse to take up Russian citizenship, leave the Ukrainian passport or remove Ukrainian flag. I was pleased to see the unity of the prisoners’ families, the strong condemnation which some MPs recently allowed to express from some not-Ukrainian TV channels, particularly about Sentsov’, he noted.
As we reported Ukraine’s General Prosecutor’s Office opened a case on Murayev, a Ukrainian MP, under the articles on state treason and misleading information about a committed crime. The criminal proceeding was registered because Sergiy Pashynsky (People’s Front faction) informed about Murayev’s illegal actions from the rostrum of the Ukrainian Parliament.
