Ukraine's chief anti-corruption prosecutor on resignation rumors: "They wish!"
Chief of Ukraine's Specialized Anti-corruption Prosecutor's Office (SAPO), Nazar Kholodnytsky, says a "balanced media campaign" was set up around the issue of his possible resignation.
He noted that he followed all developments on the internet.
"First, I saw that I was going to resign, then I was going on vacation by Easter and until late May… I am now on a visit to Brussels. SAPO and NABU [the National Anti-corruption Bureau of Ukraine] are working together," Kholodnytsky told journalists in Brussels, answering the question from an UNIAN correspondent.
