Oleksandr Onyshchenko, a fugitive lawmaker from the People’s Will faction, has accused President Petro Poroshenko and his inner circle of massive corruption and released what he says is evidence to back his claims.

Though the vast scale of Ukrainian corruption is common knowledge, Onyshchenko’s sweeping allegations add minute detail to the overall picture and specify the exact amounts allegedly paid by the president to bribe lawmakers, as well as those allegedly extorted from state companies by Poroshenko and his right-hand man, lawmaker Ihor Kononenko.

The Presidential Administration has dismissed Onyshchenko’s accusations as “absolutely false” and said that he was attempting to politicize an embezzlement case against him. Representatives of Kononenko, who has denied such accusations in the past, declined to comment.
