“The investigation into Yanukovych v. Maidan case is stopped. De facto, investigative actions against Yanukovych in this case are not kept since 2014,” stated Vitaliy Serdiuk, the lawyer of Ukrainian ex-president, adding that Interpol refused to declare Viktor Yanukovych wanted.
“The trial court refused to listen to Yanukovych, the court of second instance ignored the hearing of the case. It causes the situation in which any illegal decision of the trial court cannot be challenged in the court of second instance. After considering the issue, we hope that Specialized Higher Court of Ukraine for Civil and Criminal Cases will make a correct and lawful decision. Otherwise, the complaint will go to the European Court of Human Rights,” said Yanukovych’s lawyer.
Yanukovych is ready to give testimony on all the cases concerning his person. Serdyuk said that ex-president tried to bring his explanation for more than six times, but the judges denied. He also announced that Yanukovych is ready to say his actual address.
