Oleksandr Turchynov, first deputy chairman of the Batkivschyna Party and former first vice Prime Minister, has undergone interrogation within investigation into a case instituted on the fact of the former Cabinet's misusing funds raised from the sales of greenhouse gas emission quotas within the Kyoto Protocol.
He announced this to the press on leaving the building of the General Prosecutor’s Office following his interrogation.
"I was invited to the General Prosecutor’s Office this time on a very interesting question. The question is related to the money of the Kyoto Protocol," said Oleksandr Turchynov.
He reiterated that the accusations of misusing the funds raised from the sales of the quotas by the former Cabinet are unfounded and represent a provocation.
"During the work of our Cabinet of Ministers there was no case when funding raised on the Kyoto Protocol and kept on a special account was misused," said the politician.
The former first deputy Prime Minister said the accusations of this sort cause damage to the Ukrainian image in the world.
As earlier reported, Japan said in May it demanded that Ukraine provide a report on the use of the funds received by Ukraine within the Kyoto Protocol.
Late in April, the General Prosecutor’s Office opened a criminal case on fact of misuse of assets from the special fund of the national budget received in 2009 from the sale of part of the greenhouse gas emission quotas within the Kyoto Protocol for a total sum of 2.3 billion UAH, Ukrainian News reports.
The case tackles facts of violations of the budget legislation and position abuses causing essential damage to the national interests under part 2 of article 210 and part 2 of article 364 of the Criminal Code of Ukraine.
