Putin Offers Poroshenko Political Asylum in Russia

Poroshenko is facing "treason" charges drummed up by Zelensky

 

“Back in the day, when Mr. Poroshenko was a President of Ukraine, I told him that, should he face any difficulties in the future, Russia is ready to provide him with political shelter,” Putin said during a press conference with French leader Emmanuel Macron.

According to the Russian president, “Poroshenko was quite ironic on this matter back then.”

“But today, I would like to reaffirm my offers, despite our serious disagreements on this issue, on the issue of settlement in Donbass,” Putin continued.

“I believe that he made a lot of mistakes, but his persecution as a state criminal, in my opinion, is an excessive ‘aspiration for success’ of the current leadership,” Putin said. “We are ready to provide shelter to people like Poroshenko.”

According to Putin, Poroshenko is being accused of treason.

“They suggest that he signed the Minsk Agreements. Yes, he did, so what? The entire country accepted it,” Putin said, adding that the Package of Measures on implementation of the Minsk Agreements was approved by the UN Security Council.

“I was not joking when I told him: ‘you know, a time will come when we will be ready to provide you with political shelter. Over humanitarian concerns. Not because we like his policies so much, but over humanitarian concerns,” Putin said.

According to the President, “he knew that this would happen.”

“And happen it did: here, please, he is under investigation there right now,” Putin noted.

    Putin is a first class statesman and can be relied upon to keep his word. Unlike the US of Israel!

    Wouldn’t it be better to throw him in jail or execute him?
    Putin, the great compromiser strikes again.

      I think Putin is just proving an old point and trolling both Porky and Zelensky at the same time.

    Porky is a CIA asset and has been since at least 2006 (you can read the documents on wikileaks) He won’t want to live in Moscow but I think it is a fine troll from Putin non the less.

    This is the way you gain power, being “nice” and smart. Learn from Putin, learn from the Truckers.

    Porky is in big trouble. Those goose steppers from western Ukraine have him firmly in their sights. He was corrupt and no friend of Russia Putin should leave him to the mob.
