On August 12, 2019 at 9:30 a.m., the State Security Bureau conducted an interrogation of ex-President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko. It lasted 2 hours, during which time several rallies gathered near the building of the State Security Bureau, both in support of the ex-president and against him.
The interrogation concerned criminal proceedings regarding possible tax evasion during the purchase and sale of Direct TV Channel LLC.
After the interrogation, Petro Poroshenko spoke at a briefing at which he said:
«I am ready to comment on the situation, yak giving pan Pipe a detector of nonsense. I don’t trust the SSB, I don’t trust the warranties, I don’t believe in the activity and inadequacy of the service. I at the same hour on the «Рryamoy» channel and nutrition, and at the same time I heard a change, as though I wanted to sound it, I’m ready to go through the nonsense detector on the «Рryamoy» channel in direct efir».
The willingness of Petro Poroshenko to go through a lie detector pleases, but the condition that he offers makes us think. Andrei Portnov claims that it was the ex-president in the organized group that took possession of the «Рryamoy» channel, designed it for an offshore company. The channel was accused of public relations of Poroshenko’s company and its policies. Therefore, it is not surprising that this channel should be used during an online interrogation, because there are suspicions that the results may be falsified. What is your opinion?
