Kyiv court rules to launch probe against Poroshenko, Klimkin on corruption charges – media
A court in Kyiv has ordered Ukraine's National Anti-corruption Bureau to launch a probe against former President Petro Poroshenko and former Foreign Minister Pavlo Klimkin on charges of abuse of power.
Ukraine's registry for court decisions placed the August 15 ruling of Kyiv's Solomyanka District Court on its website on August 21, saying that the ruling cannot be appealed, according to Radio Liberty.
It is not clear what charges Poroshenko and Klimkin are facing.
According to the court ruling, the case was initiated by an unidentified individual.
In recent weeks, Poroshenko was questioned twice as a witness by the State Bureau for Investigations in a tax evasion case.
