Fifth president of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko was signed a charge sheet of high treason. This was stated by head of the central headquarters of European Solidarity Oleksandr Turchynov, - RBC-Ukraine reports.
"Venediktova did not sign this charge sheet. It was signed by one of her deputies, as I was told, of the name of Symonenko", - he told.
The proceedings are being investigated under Part 1 and Part 3 of Art. 258-5 (financing of terrorism), Part 1 of Srt. 111 (high treason) and Part 1 of Art. 258-3 (creation of a terrorist organization) of the Criminal Code of Ukraine.
According to Turchynov, the suspicion concerns the case of coal supplies from the temporarily occupied territories of the Donbas in 2014-2015. "We are talking about providing Ukraine with coal in the context of the military confrontation of 2014-2015. The situation was extremely difficult, there was a military escalation. The then leadership of the country was able to ensure the country's energy security under these conditions", - he stated.
On December 17, the investigators of the SBI tried to serve a summons to the 5th President, but as the bureau claimed, he ignored them, after which he left in an unknown direction. After that, Poroshenko's press service announced that he went on a diplomatic tour to Turkey and Poland.
The press service of the SBI reported that it expects information from investigators on this issue.
Prior to this, people's deputy from the OPFL Viktor Medvedchuk received suspicion on the "coal case". Then the suspicion on the same case was announced to former Minister of Energy and Coal Industry Volodymyr Demchyshyn, who held the office in 2014-2016.
