The Specialized Anti-Corruption Prosecutor's Office of Ukraine has already prepared and submitted to the Prosecutor General's Office a draft petition regarding Ukrainian oligarch and MP Oleksandr Onyshchenko.

The Head of the Anti-Corruption Prosecutor's Office, Nazar Kholodnytsky, told this to journalists in the parliamentary lobby, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.

"I have the draft petition. It should be submitted by the Prosecutor General, so I have handed it over to the Prosecutor-General," he said.
