Court leaves MP Medvedchuk under house arrest

Kyiv's Pechersky District Court has rejected the petition to change the measure of restraint for Viktor Medvedchuk, an MP from the Opposition Platform - For Life party, in the form of arrest with the possibility of putting up UAH 1 billion bail and left him under round-the-clock house arrest, according to an Ukrinform correspondent.

The term of house arrest was set until December 7, 2021 inclusive.

The prosecutor's office earlier handed Medvedchuk a petition on the measure of restraint for him changed from house arrest to arrest with the possibility of posting UAH 1 billion bail.

According to the investigation files, Medvedchuk persuaded the leadership of Ukraine to deliver fuel from "LPR" and "DPR" and pay directly to the leaders of terrorist organizations.

According to Ukrainian Prosecutor General Iryna Venediktova, in 2015, at least UAH 200 million was transferred, cashed out, and distributed to "LPR" and "DPR" for coal supplies from the temporarily occupied territories of Luhansk and Donetsk regions and for the implementation of the overall criminal plan to promote their activities, not taking into account the funds paid in cash, out of the planned more than UAH 3.16 billion.
