"I have a principle that excludes the existence of untouchables in the country. This also fully applies to any prosecutor," Lutsenko said.

He added that the NABU's actions are absolutely correct as it has the right to examine any cases against prosecutors, including prosecutor general.

At the same time, Lutsenko noted there are observations about certain actions of the NABU.

"I will personally consult with the leadership of the NABU so that these checks do not interfere with our common efforts regarding high-profile crimes by officials. I'm not going to protect Kulyk, he will be held responsible under all charges made against him like any common citizen of Ukraine," he concluded.
