The director of the State Bureau of Investigation (SBI), Roman Truba, believes that the criminal proceedings that were launched on the basis of statements filed by former first deputy head of the Ukrainian Presidential Administration Andrii Portnov have legal prospects.

Truba said this to the Ukrainian News Agency.

“Looking at the arguments outlined in the statements, it can be argued that these cases have legal prospects. [These] issues ate quite resonant. In connection with this, we have planned an investigation, and we intend to conduct it as soon as possible. We will verify all the claims made in the statements, and, accordingly, obtain evidence confirming or refuting guilt," he said.

As Ukrainian News Agency earlier reported, the State Bureau of Investigation has opened four criminal proceedings based on Portnov's statements against former President Petro Poroshenko.

Specifically, the State Bureau of Investigation has opened criminal proceedings against Poroshenko and other officials on suspicion of committing treason by sending Ukrainian naval sailors through the Kerch Strait, laundering state funds, and abuse of authority during appointment of two members of the High Council of Justice.

After returning to Ukraine on May 19, Portnov announced that he intended to seek criminal prosecution of Poroshenko, deputy head of Presidential Administration Oleksii Filatov, and parliamentarians Serhii Pashynskyi and Maksym Burbak of the of the People’s Front faction.
