Parliamentary TIC not to question Zelensky – MP Bezuhla
KYIV. Sept 14 (Interfax-Ukraine) – The Verkhovna Rada’s Temporary Commission of Inquiry (TIC) into the investigation of possible illegal actions of government officials and others against Ukraine’s sovereignty does not plan to interview Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky in the Wagner fighters case.
According to the head of the commission Maryana Bezuhla, this is due to the fact that the head of state is an inviolable person.
"Speaking of the Supreme Commander-in-Chief, the TIC has no right to summon him, as he is an inviolable person. In addition, based on the results of processing materials that are directly related to the case of operational correspondence and other documents that indicate specific decision-making, we did not have a need," Bezuhla said at a briefing on Monday.
However, when asked why head of the President’s Office Andriy Yermak was not questioned, she said Yermak "is not a decision-maker," unlike Vasyl Burba, the former head of the Defense Intelligence Agency of Ukraine’s Ministry of Defense.
Bezhuhla said "more and more questions" arise concerning Burba, as the TIC found some distortions of information received by executive officers at different levels.
According to Bezuhla, these distortions of information came from Burba.
