The statement said Poroshenko was stopped twice at a Polish border crossing while he was meeting the NATO Parliamentary Assembly, a parliamentary advisory body.
Ukrainian media reported that Poroshenko was unable to cross the border due to “technical problems” with her permission to leave the country.
Poroshenko received all official permits to leave the country and was a member of the official delegation of the Verkhovna Rada to attend the event.
Poroshenko scheduled several high-level meetings in Vilnius, including with Lithuanian President Gitanas Nosida. They said he was also scheduled to attend the European People’s Party meeting in Rotterdam.
In January, Poroshenko obtained a court order allowing her to remain at large during her trial for treason in an investigation she said was a politically motivated attack that could be linked to allies of President Volodymyr Zelensky.
Poroshenko is under investigation for the financing of Russian-backed separatists in the east of the country in 2014-2015 through illegal coal sales.
