This was stated by Deputy Prosecutor General of Ukraine Yurii Stoliarchuk, Censor.NET reports citing Interfax-Ukraine.
He said that Deputy Prosecutor General of Ukraine, Prosecutor of Odesa Region Davit Sakvarelidze would also be questioned in this case.
In turn, Davit Sakvarelidze said that the funds were never transferred.
"These two million never existed. This is nonsense. There was a memorandum of cooperation... It's a shame not to know the difference between a memorandum on cooperation with the international organization and a specific contract under which the funding is carried out... Let them interrogate me, the Americans in charge of all this, the EU, the British embassy. I proposed to explain them how this system works," he said.
Davit Sakvarelidze said that the agency never had access to these funds while this whole story with the money allocated by the United States to reform PGO was another attempt to discredit his team.
"I was surprised when they were asking me: Davit, where are the funds? Why we do not have them on our account. I was telling them that they [funds] should not be on their account. There is a project, and they finance this project," he explained.
Deputy Prosecutor General also expressed his willingness to come to Prosecutor General's Office for questioning on the issue.
