Parliamentary Deputy Vadim Novinsky of the Opposition Bloc faction has said that the criminal proceedings that Prosecutor General Yurii Lutsenko announced against him were completely fabricated by investigators.

Novinsky stated this to reporters on the sidelines of the parliament, Ukrainian News Agency reports.

"This accusation is completely fabricated on the basis of the testimony of a single person," he said.

According to Novinsky, he is not afraid that the parliament will lift his immunity and he is ready for such a decision by the parliament.
