KIEV, August 29. /TASS/. The Ukrainian Prosecutor-General’s Office has opened "new criminal cases" against leader of Ukraine’s Radical Party Oleg Lyashko, his fellow party member Igor Mosiychuk wrote on Facebook on Saturday, adding that criminal proceedings had been opened against him as well.
"Yesterday it became known that the Prosecutor-General’s Office had opened new criminal cases against me and leader of the Radical Party Oleg Lyashko", Mosiychuk wrote. He noted that "this time Shokin [Ukraine’s Prosecutor-General Viktor Shokin] and all hands accuse us of organizing a criminal group, kidnapping people, illegal deprivation of freedom and torture."
"A report on us was scribbled by former commander the Aidar battalion Sergey Malnichuk", Mosiychuk added. According to him, the criminal cases against him and Lyashko were related to the detention of Mayor of the city of Stakhanov Yury Borisov in July 2014 on suspicion of collaboration with separatists, in particular, in the organization and financing of the referendum on the establishment of the Lugansk People’s Republic (LPR).
He noted that Melnichuk "concluded an agreement with Prosecutor-General Shokin and, to avoid legal responsibility in connection with his own criminal case (Melnichuk is accused of establishing a criminal organization), wrote a report under the orders of investigators."
Mosiychuk also said that Melnichuk "on the instruction of President Pyotr Poroshenko continued to fabricate criminal cases" against those who refuse to vote for the amendments to the Ukrainian Constitution on decentralization.
