Former Prime Minister of Ukraine Arseniy Yatsenyuk has once again come to the Prosecutor General’s Office of Ukraine for interrogation in the case of crimes against Euromaidan activists in the period of January-February, 2014.
Before entering the premises of the Prosecutor General’s Office in the morning of October 13, he told reporters that the investigation establishes the role of each participant in a criminal gang, headed by then-President Viktor Yanukovych, Interfax-Ukraine news agency reports.
In addition, according to him, the investigation establishes the role of the law enforcement officers, “who set hired thugs on peaceful protesters,” of the foreign ministers of Poland, Germany, and France “who repeatedly came to Yanukovych and held talks with him,” as well as “the role and place” of some parliamentarians.
“A full picture of the events that preceded Maidan and of the dramatic events of February 18-21 [February 2014] is being reproduced… Thus, the investigation will have a complete picture in order to submit the case files to the court and start the trial,” the ex-Prime Minister said.
Yatsenyuk also came for questioning to the Prosecutor General’s Office on October 11 and then said that “many investigators deal with the case”, noted their professionalism and said that “if such people investigate the case, it will not only be submitted to the court, but will also get a guilty verdict against the former regime.”
According to him, a part of the plan, which was implemented by Yanukovych, including on crackdown on Euromaidan, took place with the assistance and support of Russia and the Russian special services, and the former Ukrainian president was “a puppet.”
