Poroshenko suspected of trading coal with DPR and LPR

Former Prosecutor Trepak: a new suspicion may be brought against former President Poroshenko

Former Deputy Prosecutor General of Ukraine Viktor Trepak said In the near future, the office of the Prosecutor General may present suspicion to ex-President Petro Poroshenko of trading coal with the Luhansk and Donetsk People's Republics (DPR and LPR). The lawyer wrote about this on his Facebook page.

According to Trepak, the Ukrainian prosecutor's office, as part of the investigation into the case of politician Viktor Medvedchuk, reported that Poroshenko was supplying coal from the DPR and LPR to Ukraine. Trepak noted that Medvedchuk and ex-Minister of Energy of Ukraine Volodymyr Demchishin are being investigated in the same case.

“A draft of such a suspicion prepared by the Office of the Prosecutor General is being studied in the Office of the President. It is being decided how expedient the realization of such a suspicion is now and how it will affect the electoral mood of society, “Trepak wrote.

On December 1, former Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko called on the West to urgently introduce new sanctions against Russia. According to him, “the price of aggression for [Russian President Vladimir] Putin must become exorbitant and unbearable.”
