About a thousand Ukrainian law enforcers were injured during the violent stage of Euromaidan protests in Kyiv in late 2013-early 2014. 23 fighters perished during that period. Stanislav Shulyak, the former commander of Ukraine’s interior troops and now officially the witness in this case, which is considered by the Ukrainian court, said this during the court hearing on Friday, December 2.
Those behind the killings of the policemen should be identified and punished, just like those who injured and killed the protesters, Shulyak said.
The interview co-hosted by courts in Kyiv and Rostov began at 1 p.m. Kyiv time.
Shulyak is, according to the Ukrainian prosecutors, also the suspect in defection and committing crimes against Euromaidan protesters. He denied receiving the notice of suspicion in this case.
