Prosecutor General’s Office of Ukraine hopes that the video conference between Ukrainian and Russian courts will take place today. The interview of Stanislav Shulyak, the commander of Ukraine’s Interior Troops in 2014 is slated for today; the Office’s representative Olexiy Donskoy said this while talking to 112 Ukraine TV channel.

‘We expect that the interview will take place. It was the initiative of the defense to hold it as a video conference. As a matter of fact, Shulyak is a suspect in certain crimes against civilians. I hope, we will be able to hold the cross-examination – something we couldn’t fully enjoy during questioning Yanukovych’, Donskoy said.

Stanislav Shulyak, the-then commander of the Interior Troops of Ukraine’s Interior Ministry, is charged with crimes against Euromaidan protesters in late 2013-early 2014. As he stays in Russia, his interview is expected to take place just briefly after the interview with ex-president Viktor Yanukovych. The ousted ex-leader so far figures in the Euromaidan case as the witness – even though Prosecutor General Yuriy Lutsenko announced the notice of suspicion against him.
