President Zelensky publicly promised “problems” to Poroshenko, and SBI follows his orders – lawyers Novikov and Holovan

Another fabricated case against the fifth President of Ukraine, the leader of the European Solidarity party Petro Poroshenko, is one of the “problems” publicly voiced Volodymyr Zelensky at a press conference by. The State Bureau of Investigation, which is an instrument of the Zelensky Office in political persecution, immediately rushed to fulfil the orders, say Petro Poroshenko’s lawyers on the so-called “paintings story.” 

The story with the famous “Biden films”, which was touted as a sensation, has been put onto the backburner. Now there is a new sensation – the story of the paintings,” said lawyer Illya Novikov. 

“It is important that the SBI reacts so quickly to President Zelensky’s promises to arrange problems to Petro Poroshenko. It is also very important that the SBI has already lost hope of finding something illegal going back to the times of when Petro Poroshenko was President of Ukraine. so now they are digging deeper into the history,” said lawyer Ihor Holovan. 

The lawyers reminded that the first criminal case against Poroshenko, which has been opened one year ago, and the case that followed, failed to generate a single evidence of crime or wrongdoing. 

“This comedy is staged by the SBI, customers from among pro-Russian forces, and the President’s Office. Now, from what we saw during the press conference, orders come directly from President Zelensky. This comedy has been going on for a year now, but not a single fact of any offense was presented. However, we have no one doubts (and so was openly stated by President Zelensky), that all these proceedings are fabricated against the fifth President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko. In such circumstances, summons for questioning sent to President Poroshenko as a witness are entirely contrary to the constitutional principle of the rule of law. If you have something to produce – show it. Otherwise, we are not going to tolerate these illegal demands,” Holovan stressed.
