The former leader of the Ukrainian state is charged with several tough crimes, including state treason, aiding the deliberate actions against the state borders of Ukraine and aiding in waging the aggressive war.
The act of indictment in Yanukovych's case was passed to the court in March 2017.
The former Ukrainian leader has been fleeing from Ukrainian justice in Russia for almost five years now.
The prosecution insists that Yanukovych is sentenced to 15 years behind the bars.
The ex-president and his sidekicks fled the country immediately after the Revolution of Dignity in Ukraine in February 2014.
