“We cannot influence Italian justice. We are waiting for a court ruling,” the press service told Interfax-Ukraine on Monday.
SBU reiterated that in September 2011 Melnychenko was put on the wanted list. He was accused of divulging state secrets, the forgery of documents, and abuse of power. Shevchenkivsky District Court of Kyiv ruled to arrest Melnychenko, as he broke his recognisance not to leave the country and evaded the investigatory process.
The press service saud that due to the fact that the location of the accused was unknown for a long time, the pre-trial investigation was suspended.
