In the Svyatoshinsky court of Kiev today, 28 November at 13:00 will continue hearing the case of five former employees of special division “Berkut”, which is scheduled to questioning the ex-President of Ukraine Viktor Yanukovych as a witness via video calling with the Rostov regional court.
The last time the interrogation did not take place because Svyatoshinsky court has not taken suspects “berkutovets”: several dozen people blocked the Lukyanivka prison, arguing his action by the fact that after new evidence of Yanukovych a suspect, ex-law enforcement officers can mitigate the measure of restraint. In particular, it was reported that the action was attended by members of the “Right sector” and “Automaidan” and Association “Most people”. While the interior Ministry declared the right of citizens to peaceful protest, and that the Ministry will not touch them, as “largely shared” their “point of view and motives”.
In connection with the inability to bring suspects before a court , the meeting was rescheduled for November 28, not allowing to speak to Yanukovych. The ex-President had only to say that he was initiated interrogation and that evening held in Rostov press conference where you talked about the Donbass, the Crimea and the Euromaidan. The main theses of speeches of the fugitive President we have gathered in this material. Key – he said that to voice their testimony in court. We also made a selection of reactions from social networks at the press-conference of Yanukovych.
The GPU is already stated that the presence of “Berkut officers” at the meeting this time can be held through video calls – right out of Lukyanovka jail. In the morning the situation under the prison was calm, activists were not, and the Minister of internal Affairs Ivan Varchenko said about the lack of information about upcoming promotions.
