 Prosecutor General Lutsenko replied to MP Leshchenko: "I can provide you no competition in secret meetings with oligarchs"

Prosecutor General Yurii Lutsenko claims he has not met with Ukrainian oligarch Ihor Kolomoiskyi this year.

He wrote on Facebook, Censor.NET reports.

"I went to bed at 1 a.m., woke up at 7 a.m. As I was having my morning coffee, I learned that Ukrainska Pravda was finishing its work much later than me. It turned out that at 2:35 a.m., they decided to inform the country about Serhii Leshchenko's daydreaming that Lutsenko had allegedly secretly met with Kolomoiskyi during his trip to Ivano-Frankivsk.

"Dear colleagues-journalists! In order to examine the truth in the far-fetched daydreaming submitted personally by the MP, it is enough to get up at 6 a.m., introduce the new prosecutor in Lutsk at 8 a.m., hold a briefing and meet with anti-terrorist operation (ATO) fighters after that, and then do the same things in Odesa and Ternopil . You have described this on Ukrainska Pravda yourselves.

"I assure you that I do not have time in my schedule not only for meeting with Kolomoiskyi, but even for lunch," he wrote.
