The prosecutor's office of the Russian Federation claims that the former president of Ukraine Viktor Yanukovych resides in Rostov, but witnesses deny this.
"The General Prosecutor's Office of the Russian Federation informed us of the false address of the suspect Viktor Yanukovych's residence: after we sent a letter of suspicion to all possible addresses of the residence and location of Yanukovych, namely, to the address reported by the Prosecutor General's Office of the Russian Federation in Rostov-on-Don, we sent a second request to the Prosecutor General's Office of the Russian Federation, so that we could be informed of a specific true residence address.
In response, we received an answer that the address in Rostov-on-Don is true, but they did not provide any supporting documents. In addition, after questioning two witnesses in this criminal proceeding, they said that Yanukovych does not live in Rostov-on-Don, but near Moscow," Kravchenko said.
At the same time, he noted that the investigation does not have the exact information where Yanukovych lives, but takes all possible measures to find it out.
It should be noted that the Russian General Prosecutor's Office, in response to a request from the Prosecutor General's Office of Ukraine, said that it is ready to organize questioning of former Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych in the territory of the Russian Federation in the presence of Ukrainian investigators.
