The former President once again did not attend the meeting.
Obolonskiy district court of Kiev on Thursday resumed the consideration of criminal proceedings for treason by the former President of Ukraine Viktor Yanukovych.
The summons Yanukovych ignored, so the prosecution asked to start the procedure a special (part-time) production.
Yanukovych is accused that on March 1, 2014, staying on the territory of the Russian Federation, he committed treason by submitting a written statement to the President of the Russian Federation with a request to use Russian troops on the territory of Ukraine. This subsequently led to the loss of the Crimea and Ukraine of objects of state property amounting to more than 1,080 trillion hryvnia.
The former President is accused of treason (part 1 of article 111 of the criminal code), aiding separatism (part 5, article 27, part 3 of article 110 of the criminal code) and aiding in waging aggressive war (part 5, article 27, part 2 of article 437 of the criminal code).
The prosecution will ask for life sentence for Yanukovych.
