Instead, he went to the Ivan Honchar Museum in Kiev, where he brought his collection of paintings. There Poroshenko launched a stream associated with the investigation. At an impromptu exhibition he talks about the published RRT live with the agenda in his name.
“The exercise of the call, in criminal proceedings, regulated by article 135 of the Criminal procedural code of Ukraine, and there “videiko” — not a word. The person is called to the investigator by presenting the agenda” — wrote on his page in Facebook lawyer Igor Golovan, explaining why ex-President fails to appear at the investigative event.
