Oleksandr Yefremov, former head of the faction Party of Regions, opened the doors to the war in Ukraine. This was stated by the Prosecutor General Yuri Lutsenko during the briefing, which was broadcasted by "112 Ukraine" TV-channel.
"Yefremov is probably the first and the only person for the time of my work, to whom I have a deeply negative attitude. According to the evidence, and not the emotions, the man opened the door of the war in our country. These are not my emotions; these are not publications, not slogans. These are evidences that were presented by different people to our investigators. These evidences are in the basis of our suspicion, these proofs, as well as new ones that we hope to receive, will be the basis for our indictment. But never the less, I will be guided solely by the law, even fin the case of such a citizen, whose actions I hate with all my heart," - said Lutsenko.
"We have the reason to request an arrest for him. We have factual information provided by different individuals, and not only from Landyk, as his defense states."
"We have direct evidence from the people who personally saw the actions or calls to commit treason felony by Yefremov. With a clear conscience I signed all the documents for his detention, and with a clear conscience I am asking for his arrest," - said the Prosecutor General.
As it was reported earlier, Pechersky District Court of Kyiv arrested Oleksandr Yefremov for 60 days on August 1. The period of detention expires on September 28, 2016.
Yefremov was detained on suspicion accused of violation of foreign territorial supremacy and infringement of inviolability of Ukraine on July 30 at Kyiv airport. Apart from that Yefremov is charged with direct support of a criminal organization "LNR" and misappropriation of property "Luganskugol".
