The questioning reportedly took six hours, and was held in the building of the Poroshenko administration, even though initially it had been planned to take place in the Prosecutor's office.

The President had to answer the questions as the prosecutors are conducting an investigation into the events of the Euromaidan revolution and the murders of the protesters, known as the Heavenly Hundred.

Back in February 2014, former Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych was ousted after the mass demonstrations against him resulted in bloody clashes with the country's riot police Berkut.
