Lawyer mark Feigin intends to use the precedent of the video interrogation of the ex-President of Ukraine Viktor Yanukovych to continue to require interrogation of the Ukrainian witnesses in the Russian courts. He declared it on air of TV channel “112 Ukraine”.
“The problem was that when here in the Ukrainian process, attempts were made to interrogate in turn, the Ukrainian witnesses in cases of Ukrainian citizens who were brought to trial on political grounds, the same Savchenko, was refused, on the grounds that well, there is, first, the technical system, it really is in Russian courts, especially. And second, you can’t trust the Ukrainian court that he will certify the personality of the one who will be on the other side of the screen,” he said.
According to him, if Yanukovych to allow questioning from the court, it is probably possible to solve technically from the same Pechersky or of the court appeared to face the witnesses whom he would call by petition, citizens of Ukraine and “how to resolve this issue.”
