In December 2021, former Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko was charged with treason over his alleged dealings with “separatists” in eastern Ukraine.
Then on January 6 this year, the Pechersky District Court in Kiev, the capital of Ukraine, decided to confiscate all the property of former President Poroshenko. It includes a mansion on the outskirts of the capital, two apartments, several pieces of land and shares in several companies held by Poroshenko.
Poroshenko’s supporters say the charges are politically motivated.
Ukrainian media reported that Poroshenko faces multiple charges. Including “support of terrorism”, treason, etc. If convicted, Poroshenko faces up to 15 years in prison.
Ukrainian media reported that Poroshenko planned to take a flight from Warsaw to Kiev on January 17. On December 17, 2021, Poroshenko left Ukraine for a diplomatic trip to Turkey and other places. Ukraine’s Attorney General’s Office said earlier that prosecutors will ask the court to arrest former President Petro Poroshenko in a treason case. The Kiev Pechersky District Court has approved Poroshenko’s detention.
