That's probably true. He's a businessman who temporarily detached himself from his business and his assets. After his term is over, he will return back to his business activities.

Hard to keep pre-elections promises. The Panama leak is impressive and I hope measures will be taken to bring the money back where it belongs. Taxpayers are the eternal mules.

Poroshenko is a bad businessman and so he is a bad leader because he turned Ukraine into mess and some of his ministers tried to affect the Dutch referendum, http://homment.com/9AeSNZiTDi. For a democratic country that Ukraine pretends to be these days, this is absolutely unacceptable and I don't think Europe wants to see Ukraine as a part of Europe because they already have enough troubles with migrants and economically weak Ukraine which wants to have access to financial aid.

Follow a democratic country's lead (Iceland) - resign. Better especially since Ukraine has a history of corruption. Putin, you too.

Asked why he had failed to fulfill a campaign promise to sell his business if elected, Poroshenko said there are no buyers for assets in a country "in a state of war."

Poroshenko lies. I'll start the bidding at $100.

What happened to money Japan handed to him?

Is he in Japan to beg more money?
