Asked what high-profile cases had already been referred to the court or were ready to be referred, the prosecutor said: "I believe all cases we investigate are high-profile. It is impossible to distinguish this or that case as more or less high-profile. Each of them addresses vital elements of life of society and the state.

"Of those cases that are already in court, I could distinguish the case of Ternopil prosecutors, the case of the military prosecutor Kulyk, the case of Judge Buran charged with shooting at law enforcement officers, the case of the Zaporizhia Titanium and Magnesium Plant which we are trying to return under the state control, and many others...

"Those cases that are planned to be referred in the near future include proceedings against Onyshchenko, "Kyoto money" embezzlement, the case against Auditing Chamber members involved in real-estate fraud, etc.," Kholodnytskyi said.
