Kuchma spoke Thursday after the latest round of questioning by investigators. He would not specify the nature of the charges.
The Prosecutor General’s Office suspects Kuchma of abuse of office in giving illegal orders to his subordinates that eventually led to the killing of Heorhiy Gongadze in 2000. Prosecutors declined immediate comment Thursday.
Gongadze, who investigated cases of high-level corruption, was kidnapped, beaten, strangled and decapitated.
