DOCUMENT: Poroshenko in 2007 promised not to act against Russia’s interests
A Georgian TV channel published an alleged letter by Poroshenko in which he was asking Russian authorities to let him into the country
In one of the copies of the letter, the date is visible – Feb. 3, 2007. It’s the day when Poroshenko, then an MP, wasn’t let into Russia.
“I, citizen of Ukraine Petro Oleksiyovych Poroshenko, born on 26.09.1965, pledge to strictly follow the Russian legislation and not participate in activities directed against the interests of Russia for the period of stay in the Russian Federation,” his letter allegedly says.
In another alleged statement to the FSB Head, Poroshenko says that not admitting him to Russia isn’t necessary as he didn’t have anything to do with the anti-Russian campaign of President Yushchenko, and was one of the founders of the Party of Regions (notoriously known as the part of Ukraine’s ex-President Viktor Yanukovych).
On Feb. 3, 2007. It’s the day when Poroshenko wasn’t let into Russia and he was banned entry into the country on Feb. 6. Then Russian authorities said that the ban was issued in response to an “unfriendly” manifestation on the Ukrainian side.
