According to Just the News, a Ukrainian judge has ordered former U.S. Vice President Joe Biden to be listed as the alleged perpetrator of a crime in the firing of Viktor Shokin, the former Prosecutor General of Ukraine who was investigating Hunter Biden’s business dealings with the notorious Ukrainian gas company Burisma Holdings.

Just the News reported, “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 judge’s ruling orders “a competent person of the Office of the Prosecutor General of Ukraine who conducts procedural management in criminal proceedings No. 62020000000000236 dated February 24, 2020 to enter information into the Unified register of pre-trial investigations … a summary of facts that may indicate the commission of a criminal offense under Paragraph 2 of Article 343 of the Criminal procedure code of Ukraine on criminal proceedings No. 62020000000000236 dated February 24, 2020, namely: information on interference in the activities of the former Prosecutor General of Ukraine Shokin, Viktor Mykolaiovych performed by citizen of the United States of America Joseph Biden, former U.S. Vice President.”

In early 2016, Joe Biden used his authority as Vice President to threaten to withhold $1 billion in U.S. aid to Ukraine if Shokin was not fired. Shokin claims he was fired because of his refusal to end his investigation into Burisma, and, at the time of his firing, was making plans to interview Hunter Biden.
