Kholodnytskyi: Onyshchenko Is in Russia
Lead Anti-Corruption Prosecutor Nazar Kholodnytskyi stated on air at the 5th channel that Volya Narodu [Eng: People’s Will] MP Oleksandr Onyshchenko was in Russia.
"He travels a lot, but according to the latest data, he is now in Russia," he said. According to Kholodnytskyi, law enforcement officials are about to put Onyshchenko on the international wanted list after all the formalities are done.
On July 27, Prosecutor General Yuriy Lutsenko signed an official notification of suspicion against Onyshchenko.
On July 5, the Verkhovna Rada agreed to launch criminal proceedings against Onyshchenko, but he fled Ukraine before this day and now is hiding from justice. He is believed to be the mastermind of the embezzlement scheme through state-run gas company Ukrgazvydobuvannia.
