The consequence considers that the former President fled Kiev and decided to go under Putin’s protection.
The Prosecutor General of Ukraine Yuriy Lutsenko said in an interview with 1+1, for Feb GPU plans necessary to carry out a final interrogation and examination, then the case of the former President of Ukraine Viktor Yanukovych will be brought to trial.
“We plan to pull the pretrial investigation, in February we will hold final required interrogation and examination. After that the case will be referred to the court and I am sure that the Ukrainian court will put an end to this matter … I hope for the integrity of lawyers, i.e. in February we finish the investigation, a short introduction and the beginning of the trial. We will do everything not to make it faster and to make it qualitatively,” – said Lutsenko.
The Prosecutor General informed that the investigators had gathered evidence which showed that the preparation of the Russian invasion of Ukraine began long before the confrontation on the Maidan and escape of Yanukovych.
Lutsenko said that Ukraine received a letter with the official seal of the UN, which stated that the letter from Yanukovich to Putin was admitted as an official document of the UN security Council at the request of the representative of the Russian delegation Churkin.
“It legitimitize the fact that Yanukovych has called for Russian troops to invade Ukraine. During this time, we interviewed 32 witnesses who give a comprehensive picture of how Yanukovych has committed treason. Important testimony was given, the Minister of internal Affairs Arsen Avakov. That’s the day before his interrogation, in which he issues a receipt to Yanukovych that he refused from the state security as at 24 February 2014. It completely refutes all of his lies in the appeal to Putin about the fact that on the territory of Crimea someone is threatened,” – said the Prosecutor General.
According to him, the signature of Yanukovych, submitted to the Minister of internal Affairs Avakov, suggests that he fled from Kiev and decided to side with the enemy of Russia is actually under his protection.
“We also questioned the two deputies of the state Duma of the Russian Federation. They indicate that the mechanism of entry of Russian troops on the territory of Ukraine was launched by the Kremlin in December when Maidan was still standing in the center of Kiev. During the visit of Surkov to the Crimea in December it was already mentioned about the possibility of military invasion”, – said Lutsenko.
