276 people suspected of crimes during Euromaidan protests
They all are brought to criminal responsibility, Prosecutor General’s Office said
Former President Yanukovych and another 275 Ukrainian officials are suspected of committing crimes during Euromaidan, the mass anti-government protests in winter 2013-2014. Serhiy Horbatyuk, Head of Special Investigations Department of Prosecutor General’s Office, said this at a briefing in Kyiv on February 18 (Interfax-Ukraine).
According to him, one-sixth of these people are the-then top-rank officials,” starting with the ex-President and finishing with heads of administrations”. Yanukovych himself is suspected of creating a criminal organization.
“From 2010 till 2013, members of this organization committed illegal actions to seize power (…), and then committed crimes to enrich themselves. This is misappropriation of state funds, corrupt practices and simply illicit enrichment. All of that led to the deep and long-lasting crisis in the country”, Horbatyuk said.
Prosecutor General's Office of Ukraine previously reported that during protests in early 2014, Berkut riot police obtained and could have used grenades with hazardous materials illegally brought from Russia.
