    Deputies of the Verkhovna Rada have began collecting signatures for the impeachment of President Petro Poroshenko. The creator of the document, according to RIA Novosti, is the leader of the parliamentary faction of the Radical party Oleg Lyashko and his party.

    Previously, Lyashko announced his intention to initiate the procedure in connection with the information about Poroshenko's involvement  in offshore schemes.

    In early April, the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists (ICIJ) published documents about offshore accounts resulting from leaks from the Panama legal company Mossack Fonseca. In the archive are the names of the 12 heads of state and hundreds of famous people, among which are former UEFA President Michel Platini, the head of Argentina Mauricio Macri, the Prime Minister of Iceland Sigmundur Gunnlaugsson, the family of Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev, the star of "FC Barcelona" Lionel Messi, the President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko, and others.

    According to the publication, Poroshenko, in 2014, allegedly organized the activities of an offshore company in the Virgin Islands to delegate his business to a management he can trust.
