Poroshenko is a suspect in the & nbsp; treason case. The case was initiated under & nbsp; h. 1 and & nbsp; h. 3 tbsp. 258 & minus; 5 (Financing of terrorism), part 1 of Art. & Nbsp; 111 (High treason) and & nbsp; h. 1 tbsp. 258 & minus; 3 (Creation of a terrorist organization) of the Criminal Code of & nbsp; Ukraine.

The ex-president himself on & nbsp; his Facebook page said that & nbsp; will return to & nbsp; Kiev on January 17 & nbsp; to appear in & nbsp; court. He & nbsp; also plans to hold a meeting with the & nbsp; Prosecutor General of Ukraine, using the right of the people's deputy to & nbsp; emergency reception. Poroshenko stressed that & nbsp; he & nbsp; does not return & nbsp; to & nbsp; to defend against & nbsp; incumbent Ukrainian President Vladimir Zelensky, but & nbsp; to protect Ukraine from & nbsp; & nbsp; “ incompetent leadership '' and & nbsp; 'external aggression'.

Petro Poroshenko ranks seventh in the rating of the Ukrainian version of Forbes magazine “100 richest Ukrainians 2021”.

His fortune is estimated at & nbsp; $ 1.6 billion. His main assets & nbsp; & mdash; TV channel “ Direct '' and & nbsp; Roshen Confectionery Corporation, whose assets have been seized since & nbsp; 2017. Poroshenko served as President of Ukraine from & nbsp; 2014 to & nbsp; 2019.

The accusations of & nbsp; treason in & nbsp; Poroshenko's address are associated with & nbsp; the period of his tenure as president. According to the & nbsp; version of the investigation, then he, acting in collusion with the & nbsp; authorities of Russia and & nbsp; the self-proclaimed LPR and & nbsp; DPR, organized a scheme for & nbsp; export of coal from & nbsp; Donbass to & nbsp; Ukraine. In total, the & nbsp; Ukraine was thus taken out of coal for & nbsp; a total of about & nbsp; UAH 1.5 billion (4 billion rubles), investigators believe.

In & nbsp; if Poroshenko is found guilty, he could face up to & nbsp ; 15 years in prison.

Employees of the State Bureau of Investigation of Ukraine on December 17 & nbsp; tried to hand the ex-president a summons for & nbsp; interrogation on a & nbsp; criminal case on & nbsp; illegal coal supplies, but Poroshenko ignored them & nbsp; and & nbsp; in & nbsp; that & nbsp; the same day bought a ticket to Europe & nbsp & nbsp;

The Prosecutor General's Office of Ukraine announced on December 24 & nbsp; that & nbsp; would petition for the & nbsp; arrest of the ex-president upon & nbsp; arrival in the & nbsp; country. With & nbsp; this the size of the bail will be UAH 1 billion ($ 37 & nbsp; million).

Poroshenko, in & nbsp; in turn, called the charges against him politically motivated. At & nbsp; at the end of December, he & nbsp; recorded a video message in & nbsp; Warsaw, in which he claimed that & nbsp; he was “ given greetings from the & nbsp; office of President [Zelensky] ''; and & nbsp; hinted that & nbsp; they would & nbsp; understand & raquo; if he & nbsp; stays in & nbsp; Europe.
