Ukraine Launches Criminal Proceedings Against Joe Biden Over Firing of Prosecutor Viktor Shokin, by Harmodia.

A court ruling in Ukraine has forced state investigators to open a probe into alleged pressure by then-Vice President Joe Biden that led to the 2016 dismissal of Viktor Shokin as the country’s prosecutor general, officials said Thursday. …

Shokin’s lawyer, Oleksandr Teleshetsky, said the probe was launched in response to a court order, after an appeal for action by Shokin. The State Bureau of Investigations confirmed a case was opened. …

“They need to investigate this. They have no other alternative. They are required to do this by the decision of the court. If they don’t, then they violate a whole string of procedural norms,” [Shokin’s lawyer, Oleksandr Teleshetsky] said in an interview.

The tide may be turning. Who’s ecstatic?
