In turn, Poroshenko’s lawyer Igor Golovan denied the accusations of the State Bureau of Investigation, which relate to the failure to fulfill the obligations assigned to Poroshenko.

“The State Bureau of Investigation cannot help but lie. Petr Poroshenko’s passports were handed over to the CGU HMS in Kiev and the Kiev region by me personally this morning (January 24. – Ed.),” he wrote on his Facebook page and published a screenshot of the stamp in confirmation.

Poroshenko’s trial

  • On December 20, 2021, Petro Poroshenko was informed of suspicion of committing high treason and facilitating the activities of terrorist organizations. He is charged with organizing a criminal scheme for the supply of coal from the temporarily occupied territories and assisting the terrorist organizations “LPR” and “DPR” by a group of Ukrainian citizens for a total amount of about 1.5 billion hryvnia.
  • On January 19, the court chose Poroshenko a measure of restraint in the form of a personal obligation. The court released him on a personal commitment, obliging him to hand over his passports to travel abroad and not to travel outside Kiev and the region without the permission of the investigator. Poroshenko said he would appeal the court’s decision, as it would interfere with his political activities.
  • Political scientist Ruslan Bortnik believes that one of the reasons why the court did not send Poroshenko to a pre-trial detention center or under house arrest is the persistent recommendations of the United States. The White House emphasizes that now is not the time to arrange political showdowns and split society, while Russian tanks and a 100,000-strong military contingent are stationed at the border. In addition, there were many supporters of Poroshenko near the Pechersky court. If they had arrested him and tried to take him out of court in a paddy wagon, there could have been fights between the protesters and the police, and it is not known what the confrontation would have escalated into.
  • On February 21, the Prosecutor General’s Office filed an appeal against the court’s decision to impose a preventive measure.

The website “Segodnya” found out for what other reasons the court turned out to be loyal to the fifth president of Ukraine and why it did not impose a severe measure of restraint on the politician suspected of treason.
