"Nobody demanded anything from me; I do not feel neither pressure, nor blackmail. I normally talk to the people at the Administration of the President," he said, answering the question whether it is possible to consider Korban a hostage of the government in its fight with Kolomoiskyi himself.

"Of course, Korban has not committed any crimes; all the charges were made up. We care about him and we will fight in court to prove it. Law enforcers are dependent people; we understand whose orders they carry out. I know that these so called cases were put on a shelf. Why have been they refreshed now? Once again, it's an incomprehensible painful reaction to the result of Ukrop," he added.

"The patriotic forces should engage in a dialogue. UKROP is a patriotic force, as well as Petro Poroshenko Block," he stressed.

Kolomoisky added that Korban entered the highest echelon of Ukrainian politics after the arrest: "You can congratulate him. Even a day spent in jail automatically sends him to the highest political league. We can say, he passed the test."
