The names of 'improsecutable' Ukrainians from the Yovanovitch list got out

The main thing appeared in the scandal around the Ukrainian Prosecutor General Yuriy Lutsenko’s statement on the list of individuals he should not prosecute given to him by the American Ambassador. That thing is the names. Ukrainians started to actively share the photo leaked out to the web on Facebook communities oppositional to the current President of Ukraine.


To recap, earlier on, the Prosecutor General of Ukraine stated in an interview to the Hill that in 2016 US Ambassador to Ukraine Marie Yovanovitch had given him a list of individuals who should not be prosecuted by his department. However, Lutsenko did not mention any names.

The fact that such classified document could get out on the web behind the Trump Administration’s back is now as hard to believe as the fact that a high ranked official like Lutsenko could even make such a revelation without the knowledge of Poroshenko.

Most likely Poroshenko himself ordered to set Yovanovitch up trying to gain support of both Donald Trump and the Republicans at the elections. However, Trump did not appreciate such an attempt. He made it clear he never forgave Poroshenko’s support of Clinton at the elections in the United States. After receiving an aggressive reaction, Poroshenko instantly passed the buck to Lutsenko, and confirmed he completely backed Yovanovitch. Yet, the last move was still made by the White House. The list of the names that were not mentioned in the sensational interview by the Prosecutor General of Ukraine has magically appeared on the web.
