Former President of Ukraine Viktor Yanukovych appealed to Svyatoshinskyi District Court of Kyiv with a request to file the further evidence about the events on the Maidan in the winter of 2013-2014 collected by him and his assistants, TASS reports.
"My assistants and I have prepared great materials. These are the three large volumes, you'll see them. This is further evidence of the crimes that were committed on the Maidan. We will ask Svyatoshinskyi Court and the Prosecutor General of Ukraine to study these materials and attach them to the case", he said in an interview with a Russian TV channel.
Yanukovych also required investigating crimes against law enforcement officers during the Maidan.
"We believe that this case can not be considered without consequences for the victims of law enforcement officers. These crimes must not remain unpunished. It is a violation of the Constitution. All of them hide behind Maidan laws that do not allow investigators to approach to this investigation objectively," he said.
He also added that "shooting protesters and soldiers of Berkut Special Forces were conducted from the same building."
