This summer, former Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych, who is accused of treason, sued then Prosecutor-General Yuriy Lutsenko. Lutsenko allegedly damaged his honor, dignity, and business reputation during the UN General Assembly debate.

As we reported earlier, on October 2, the Kyiv Court of Appeal upheld the decision on the arrest of ex-President of Ukraine Viktor Yanukovych in force.

Yanukovych is charged with state treason, assistance in deliberate actions against Ukraine’s state border, sovereignty, and territorial integrity, and assisting in leading the aggressive war against Ukraine.
