Ukrainian Prosecutor General Yuriy Lutsenko announced he has opened a probe into alleged efforts by a Ukrainian to interfere with the 2016 presidential elections on behalf of Hillary Clinton.

"Today we will launch a criminal investigation about this and we will give legal assessment of this information," he told Hill.TV.

The investigation centers on a claim from a Ukrainian parliament member that, Artem Sytnyk, the director of the National Anti-Corruption Bureau of Ukraine, attempted to help Clinton.

"According to the member of parliament of Ukraine, he got the court decision that the NABU official conducted an illegal intrusion into the American election campaign," Lutsenko said. 

"It means that we think Mr. Sytnyk, the NABU director, officially talked about criminal investigation with Mr. [Paul] Manafort, [Donald Trump's campaign chairman] and at the same time, Mr. Sytnyk stressed that in such a way, he wanted to assist the campaign of Ms. Clinton."

Hill.TV asked Lutsenko about reports a member of parliament obtained a tape of the current NABU head saying he was attempting to help Clinton win the election.

"This member of parliament even attached the audio tape where several men, one of which had a voice similar to the voice of Mr. Sytnyk, discussed the matter," he said.
