Prosecutor General of Ukraine Yuriy Lutsenko has announced an investigation to determine the involvement of deputies in separatist activities.
“Today, we have determined only the names of those who paid Moscow’s money, and those who received Moscow’s money. Further investigation will determine which MPs participated in this,” Lutsenko said at a joint briefing with head of the SBU Vasyl Hrytsak in Kyiv on Feb. 21.
According to him, if assistants of the people’s deputies took part in separatist activities, organized by the Russian side, this does not mean that deputies themselves were involved.
