Chief of the Special Investigations Department of the Prosecutor General's Office (PGO) of Ukraine Serhiy Horbatiuk has said outgoing Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko on May 10 was interrogated as a witness in the Maidan case. "As I was informed, the investigators are already interrogating. Perhaps, they have already finished interrogating the president," he told ZIK TV channel. According to Horbatiuk, the interrogation was agreed on the eve.
As UNIAN reported earlier, Poroshenko had to come to the PGO's Main Investigation Department on Borysohlibska Street in Kyiv on May 7, but did not appear for interrogation. He was supposed to sign an interrogation report of 2016, as well as answer a number of questions relating to the investigation of criminal cases about crimes against participants in the Revolution of Dignity.
Horbatiuk explained why the interrogation report of 2016 had not been signed yet. According to him, the interrogation was recorded on video then, and later it was transcribed, but since 2016, the investigators had not managed to meet with Poroshenko for signing the protocol with the transcribed interview.
