Prosecutor General's Office of the Russian Federation refused to hand the suspicion over to the ex-President of Ukraine Viktor Yanukovych in the framework of international legal assistance. This was stated by the GPU Prosecutor Ruslan Kravchenko during the briefing, which was broadcast by 112 Ukraine TV Channel.
"They denied us in the implementation of the international request of receipt of written suspicions. Russian Prosecutor General's Office sent us a letter that said they will not perform this request due to international legal assistance, despite that the prosecution met all the requirements of Article 42 of the Criminal Procedure Code of Ukraine on the direction and delivery of the written suspicions", Kravchenko said.
Earlier, Yanukovych’s Defense demanded the suspicions through international legal assistance.
