Prosecutor General of Ukraine Yurii Lutsenko stresses that no grounds to accuse President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko of tax evasion in the context of ‘Panama offshore scandal’ have been found.

As reported by Censor.NET with reference to Interfax-Ukraine, he told journalists in Kyiv on Thursday.

"I believe everyone has had an opportunity to get acquainted with the conclusions of the internationally renowned law firms which found no grounds for accusing the president of tax evasion or any other unlawful activities inconsistent with the National Bank of Ukraine regulations, etc.," Lutsenko said.

"All this has been demonstrated at the president's press conference during his dialogue with the author of these allegations that turned out to be 'soap bubbles'," the prosecutor general summed up.
