People’s deputy from the Servant of the People faction, Anton Polyakov, said the other deputy «ordered him to be a criminal authority.»
This Polyakov told reporters after a meeting of the faction «Servant of the people» in Kiev, reports Tsenzor.NET, with reference to Nromadske.
The parliamentarian spoke about this in the context of his dissatisfaction with the Prosecutor General Ruslan Ryaboshapka.
«A month ago, Prosecutor General Ryaboshapka told me personally that he had an idea about removing the immunity from the deputy (Boris.) Prikhodko, who stole 2 billion hryvnias and simply does not appear at the court hearings, because he is a deputy,» Polyakov said.
He said that he had asked President Vladimir Zelensky when the Speaker of the Parliament would issue him signature sheets in order to declare no confidence in Ryaboshapke and replace him with another Prosecutor General.
Polyakov claims that the «Interior Ministry official» said that he was «ordered.»
«One of the deputies who appears in the Prikhodko case ordered me to one of the criminal authorities regarding the fact that Mr. Ryaboshapka, let’s say, is under pressure from me about this case,» the parliamentarian said.
He specified that this official of the Ministry of Internal Affairs recommended that he write a statement to provide state protection.
According to Polyakov, he named the name of this deputy, and Zelensky promised him to figure it out.
Boris Prikhodko — former deputy head of the National Bank, he appears in the case of the illegal seizure of more than 2 billion hryvnias of the Agrarian Fund.
