"On behalf of the Prosecutor General, prosecutors have served Poroshenko, Petro Oleksiyiovych, with charge papers," the SBI's press service said.

Since an unauthorized person tried to hand over the suspicion, Poroshenko left the SBI HQ.

Poroshenko's interrogation at the SBI scheduled for 11:00 on June 10 didn't take place.

As UNIAN reported earlier, on June 3, the SBI summoned Poroshenko for questioning in the case of eavesdropping of international phone talks involving a Ukrainian president.

On June 4, Kyiv's Pechersky District Court authorized law enforcers to forcibly bring Poroshenko for questioning if he fails to show up on June 10.
