The charges were filed by the National Police of Ukraine. If convicted, Groszhans could be sentenced to life in prison, though Ustimenko said a sentence between 12 and 15 years was more likely. 

Calling himself "a deceived American investor," Groszhans wrote bluntly: "Roman Nikolaevich Leshchenko deceived me. And I have been suing him for several years." 

The American claimed that judges delayed his lawsuits, explaining that he "should understand who you are suing." 
Leshchenko's lawyer, Tetyana Kozachenko, told CBS News that the funds lent to him by Groszhans were "returned in full," and that the dispute was related to "business transactions."

Groszhans' attorney, however, said his client wanted more than the return of $250,000 in cash that was taken -- he was also seeking to cover the costs of "soy beans, corn, use of machinery" and legal fees totaling around $1 million.

Work in progress ... not a democracy yet 😂
