Fighting back her emotions while speaking at a press conference on June 20,
Orobets, a Batkivshchyna (Fatherland) party lawmaker, said her
husband had left the country on June 12. She did not say where he had gone.

“I have
before me today a very difficult task. Today I should come home and find the
words to tell my children that their father  will not see them for the next
few years,” she said at the press briefing. “He was forced to leave the
country because there is a criminal case (pending) against him.”

The State Tax Service of Ukraine has
accused officials at investment company Phoenix Capital of evading Hr 4 million
in taxes and falsifying documents. Orobet’s husband, Oleksandr Omelchuk, is the company’s
founder and chairman of its board.
