KIEV – As of this morning, the current president of Ukraine, Petro Poroshenko, has failed to appear in the Prosecutor General’s Office for questioning as a witness in Maidan cases on May 7 at 10:00 am .
It was expected that during this investigative event, the head of state would deliver into the record his interview (interrogation) in 2016, and also answer a number of questions. These questions the investigators intended to ask in the framework of the investigation of criminal cases about crimes against the participants of the “Revolution of Dignity” (the ‘Maidan’ – ed).
The interrogation was to take place at the Main Investigation Department of the GPU in Kiev, Borisoglebskaya Street.
According to Vesti-Ukraine, as of 10.15, Poroshenko did not come for questioning. In this regard, the representative of the Prosecutor General’s Office came out to the press, who noted that the president would be called in for questioning again. If Poroshenko again does not appear in the GPU, then he will be charged and face a fine.
