INTERPOL does not seek former Ukrainian polititions related to the crimes against Euromaidan activists, stated Serhiy Horbaiuk, the head of the Special Investigation Department of the Prosecutor General's Office, during a briefing. It is considered that this kind of persecution is politically motivated.
INTERPOL does not put on the wanted list the officials and others suspected of related crimes commited against the activists of Maidan. It gives a refuse, explaining that it seems to be political persecution, which, in our opinion, is unfounded, since we are talking about implementation of the murders. It is involvement of persons into a serious crime, and we do not see any political motives in it," he said at at the briefing.
Horbaiuk also noted that INTERPOL gives no details or special explanations on its decision.
Recalling, over 200 Ukrainians from Kyiv and other regions, who participated in Maidan faced illegal persecution. According to the preliminary results of an investigation, the court has sent indictments to 40 people already: 38 police officers and 2 judges; these people brought the peaceful activists to administrative responsibility without reason.
