Ukraine’s former president, Petro Poroshenko, has had his assets frozen amid a high treason case over alleged financial dealings with separatists in the east of the country. He says the charges are politically motivated.
The oligarch-turned-politician says he’ll fight to clear his name on his anticipated return home from Poland, later this month. The head of the ‘European Solidarity’ party was the second major opposition party leader to be targeted with legal proceedings, last year. Another rival of Western-backed President Volodymyr Zelensky, Viktor Medvedchuk, is currently under house arrest.
