The current Ukrainian authorities will not pursue criminal investigation against former Ukrainian president Pyotr Poroshenko in return for his peacefully ceding power to Vladimir Zelensky, correspondent Vladimir Sinelnikov said on May 27 on the air of the Vesti FM radio station.
Sinelnikov notes that a number of statements bringing criminal charges against Poroshenko have been registered in Ukraine; however, he believes that the authorities will not investigate them or prosecute the ex-president.
“The point is that, to the best of my belief, Poroshenko has been pardoned, or granted immunity, for the crimes that he committed when in office for peacefully ceding the power to Zelensky,” the journalist stressed.
A fourth criminal charge against Pyotr Poroshenko was registered on May 27.
On May 20, attorney Andrey Portnov accused the ex-president of high treason. On May 22, the Specialized Anti-Corruption Prosecutor’s Office of Ukraine opened a criminal investigation against Ukrainian ex-president Pyotr Poroshenko for grand theft of public funds. On May 24, Poroshenko was accused of laundering $300 million in the sales of the Kuznya na Rybalskom plant.
