The infamous story of Joe Biden’s effort to force the firing of Ukraine’s chief prosecutor in 2016 has taken a new legal twist in Kiev, just as the former vice president is sewing up the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination in America.

In Kiev late last month, District Court Judge S. V. Vovk ordered the country’s law enforcement services to formally list the fired prosecutor, Victor Shokin, as the victim of an alleged crime by the former U.S. vice president, according to an official English translation of the ruling obtained by Just the News.

The article goes on to state the following:

The court had previously ordered the Prosecutor General’s Office and the State Bureau of Investigations in February to investigate Shokin’s claim that he was fired in spring 2016 under pressure from Biden because he was investigating Burisma Holdings, the natural gas company where Biden’s son Hunter worked.

The court ruled that adequate evidence existed to push an investigation into Shokin’s claim that Biden unlawfully interfered in his work as Ukraine’s chief prosecutor. He says his work was impeded when Biden threatened to withhold a $1 billion in U.S. loan guarantees in conversations with then-President Petro Poroshenko to secure Shokin’s dismissal.

On Wednesday, leaked audio was released of calls between Biden and Poroshenko.
