The State Bureau of Investigation denied the reports about the seizure of the assets of the TV channels Pryamy and Channel 5, as this was reported on the SBI website.

The SBI noted that on January 6, the Pechersk District Court of Kyiv seized the property of the fifth president of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko, which according to the State Register of Real Property Rights and the Register of Real Property Rights, the State Register of Mortgages, the Unified Register of Expropriation Prohibitions real estate belonged to him on the right of ownership, in particular real estate, corporate rights and more.

However, according to the SBI, the seizure was not imposed to corporate rights on the channels Direct and 5-1 and its assets.

"We emphasize that due to the decision of the court no restrictions on the activities of the media were imposed," the statement said, adding that the seizure was imposed exclusively on property, corporate rights, owned by Poroshenko according to the relevant state registers.

As IMI reported, on January 6, the European Solidarity Party reported that in addition to Petro Poroshenko's property, the Pechersk District Court of Kyiv had arrested the assets of Pryamy and Channel 5.

On January 6, Kyiv's Pechersk District Court sequestrated the property of Ukraine's fifth president, MP Petro Poroshenko, on suspicion of treason and assistance to terrorism.

The General Prosecutor's Office said the court seized the suspect's property in accordance with information from the State Register of Real Property Rights and the Register of Real Property Rights, the State Register of Mortgages, the Unified Register of Prohibitions on Expropriation of Real Estate. In particular, these are real estate, corporate rights and so on.

On December 20, 2021, the State Bureau of Investigation informed Poroshenko of suspicion of treason and assistance to terrorist organizations in the case of a criminal scheme to supply coal from the temporarily occupied territories. Due to the impossibility of delivering a written notice of suspicion, it was personally sent to Poroshenko’s place of residence, registration, and place of work.

On January 6, Poroshenko, who is on a business trip to the EU, announced that he would return to Ukraine on January 17.

On November 8, 2021, Poroshenko's Pryamy and 5 TV channels announced the creation of the Free Media media holding . The media holding acquired 100% of the corporate rights from these TV channels.
