Shokin's neighbours say police officers have been monitoring the residence for the past 24 hours
Police officers are patrolling the area around the residence of Ukraine's embattled Prosecutor General Viktor Shokin. The Ukrainian president has yet to sign documents approving Shokin's resignation.
On Tuesday, March 29, Ukrainian MPs dismissed him with a majority vote of 289. Shokin's neighbors say police officers have been monitoring the residence for the past 24 hours. The residence is in a small settlement just outside the Ukrainian capital Kyiv.
Halyna, Shokin's neighbour: "We just see the police around these parts now. We were sitting here yesterday and we saw a car pass every 10 minutes. Earlier there were cows there were his house now stands. Now we can't go near the house. We live like in a trap."
The Prosecutor General submitted his resignation on February 16th. Shokin was criticized for failing to battle corruption since his appointment in February of 2015.
