"I did not leave Russia. Such situation, in which I live, in isolation from the motherland… These are probably the most difficult years of my life. Not only for me, but for my family, for my relatives. But also for that part of Ukraine, who are my supporters,” he said.

Ex-president also claimed that Yuriy Lutsenko, the current Prosecutor General of Ukraine, pressured the court with his presence today.
