Recall that the current Ukrainian authorities accuse Victor Yanukovych that it is alleged he gave the order “Golden Eagle” on the shooting of Euromaidan. Meanwhile, the involvement of employees of “Berkut” for the murder of “hundreds of Heaven” is still not proven. Moreover, as recently as a month ago, the attorney General Lutsenko hinted that the police have evidence that the shooting of Maidan activists involved…the activists of the Maidan. Numerous investigations of the events of 18-20 February 2014 in Kiev agree on one thing: shooting people on the street taken from the roof of the Conservatory, which was under the jurisdiction of the commandant of the Maidan and now of the speaker of the Verkhovna Rada Andrei Parubiy, as well as from the hotel “Ukraine”, which also at that time the headquarters of the Maidan. A group of snipers out of the hotel personally brought Parubiy, as evidenced by the photos. And sniper rifles were taken in the trunk of his car, Sergei Pashinsky, current member of Parliament. That is why Viktor Yanukovych, who is now trying to do “extreme” for the bloodshed on the Maidan, demands to call for a confrontation as Andriy Parubiy, Oleksandr Turchynov (the current head of the NSDC of Ukraine) and the mayor of Kiev Vitali Klitschko, who are better aware of what happened in those days on the Maidan.
Official request from Yanukovych’s lawyer Serdyuk gave the Prosecutor’s office of Ukraine on Tuesday. “To ensure publicity of the process, Viktor Yanukovych insists on questioning in the court in accordance with part 1 of article 225 of the criminal procedure code of Ukraine”, — he said. “Only obtained evidence in court is crucial. If the GPU initiated the first interrogation of state officials, respectively, we consider it appropriate to conduct a simultaneous interrogation, which is a confrontation”, — said Serdyuk.
At the same time, Viktor Yanukovych, of course, is not going to personally come to Kiev. He is ready to talk to prosecutors via video link. And during the interrogation, Yanukovych’s video and insists the Ministry of justice of Ukraine, which was sent to Russia the next request on this topic. According to the lawyer Yanukovich, Victor Stepanovich and he is eager to testify. Because, as claimed by the defense, early transfer to the court the case on the Maidan, will allow Yanukovych openly, without censorship, to provide all citizens of Ukraine, the real version of the events of the tragedy that occurred on the Maidan.
