Groisman: the Prosecution Yatsenyuk in Russia − absurd

Гройсман: Обвинение Яценюка в России − абсурд

Prime Minister of Ukraine Volodymyr Groysman

The Prime Minister has called politically motivated and absurd accusation of the Ukrainian ex-Premier in the Russian court.

Prime Minister of Ukraine Volodymyr Groysman wrote on Facebook that he regarded as absurd and politically motivated decision of the court of Yessentuki in Russia on the correspondence arrest of the leader of Ukrainian party of people’s front, former Prime Minister of Arseniy Yatsenyuk.

“As you know, the Russian court decided on the correspondence condemnation of Arseniy Yatsenyuk for the alleged participation in the Chechen war. This accusation is patently absurd and politically motivated. We are talking about accusing someone, and the former Prime Minister of our country, and even in that he is a terrorist. In fact, we all know who is the real and principal terrorists in the post − Soviet space”, – said Groisman.

Earlier it was reported that the court of Yessentuki in absentia was taken into custody Yatsenyuk. The Ministry of justice said it will appeal to the European court on human rights due to the correspondence arrest of the former Prime Minister on charges of “atrocities in Chechnya”.
