"We know that he (Kliuiev - ed.) sent a letter of commitment, in which he declared that he would appear for questioning at the first request. But this did not happen, so the international arrest warrant has been restored," the head of the agency noted.
Answering the question whether this case involved corruption, Shokin said: "I can answer for myself. I would not have taken Kliuiev off (the wanted list - ed.). Neither for free, nor for a fee. There are principles that cannot be broken." The Prosecutor General said that he returned to the Office after the scandal.
However, according to Shokin, all persons involved in the removal of Kliuiev from the list have been dismissed from the PGO.
Andrii Kliuiev is accused of using force and organizing mass killings of protesters on the Maidan.
Shokin previously stated that the PGO is checking possible involvement of former Prosecutor General Makhitskyi in purposeful stalling of the investigation of crimes against Euromaidan.
