"The Petro Poroshenko Bloc faction officially declares that the allegations of PPB MP Oleh Nedava about the innocence and non-involvement in any illegal activities of Yanukovych's close ally Yurii Ivaniushchenko are his personal position, which the fraction considers unacceptable and daring," the statement reads.
"Yurii Ivaniushchenko is involved in the death of the Heavenly Hundred heroes. Ivaniushchenko is internationally wanted. His European accounts have been frozen. He has been put on a list of persons subject to personal sanctions and banned from entry to the U.S. for many years. Therefore, any allegations about the innocence and non-involvement of Yanukovych's close ally Yura Yenakiyevskiy are condemned by the PPB faction and seen as a betrayal of Ukraine and the Ukrainian people. During the next meeting, the faction will raise the issue and make a corresponding decision," the statement notes.
Earlier, a video was released on the Internet in which Nedava speaks in favor of Ivaniushchenko: "In 2104, some people put Mr. Ivaniushchenko on a sanction list. The time has passed and it is clear there is no evidence against him. I declare I will speak in many European organisations, European courts and will defend myself and the people who I worked with for a long time. Hence, I'll have to defend Ivaniushchenko."
