‘We surmised he could have fled the country to avoid criminal responsibility; that’s the reason for his detention. Apart from aggression against Ukraine’s territorial integrity (the deliberate actions that led to death of people and other serious aftermaths), he is also charged with committing several law breaches, such as power abuse and illegal acquisition of property of state-run coal company’, Yuriy Lutsenko said.   

According to him, Yefremov is currently in the pre-trial detention centre in Kyiv. Investigative actions, in particular searches, are underway. Lutsenko added that in 72 hours, the detainee will be delivered to the court, which will assign the pre-trial restriction. ‘The Prosecutor General’s Office will solicit for 2 months-long detention’, he said.

Ukraine’s Prosecutor General also stressed that Yefremov will not be able to walk free on bail, since no arrest in quarters or bail is foreseen under accusations like these.
