Prosecutor General of Ukraine Yuriy Lutsenko in the end of November is going to hold talks with representatives of the International Criminal Court in Hague on the jurisdiction of investigation regarding events on Maidan. He said this during an interview with journalists.

"ICC representatives doubt that the events on Maidan can be directly subjected to review in Hague ... Because we need to prove that in Ukraine there is no possibility to carry out the investigation and trial on these matters. I do not know how to explain it ...

We have found a common language with the ICC that the events on Maidan were only a part of the chain of events that led to the war in Ukraine, and the war is most likely still under the jurisdiction of the ICC. it is obvious that there is a responsibility of higher Russian leadership and the Russian military, which committed war crimes here.  Ukraine can not carry out the investigation, and the case can be considered in the Hague, "- Lutsenko said.

He also noted that the ICC was satisfied with the amount and quality of the materials  provided by the Military Prosecutor's Office of Ukraine.
