President of Ukraine Victor Yushchenko says that an accusation of his son Andriy of participating in shooting in one of Kyiv restaurants is a slander.

According to an UNIAN correspondent, press secretary of the President Iryna Vannikova said this at the press conference today.

The press secretary added that, according to the words of V. Yushchenko,  this provocation  indicated a declaration of “war without rules” during the electoral campaign.
