The Prosecutor General's Office of Ukraine has no evidence that Anatoly Chepiga (Ruslan Boshirov), the officer of Russia's GRU suspected in the poisoning of Sergey and Yulia Skripals in Salisbury, participated in the organization of the escape of ex-president of Ukraine Viktor Yanukovych to Russia. Serhiy Gorbatyuk, the Head of Special Investigations Department, claimed this as "Nastoyashchee Vremia" reported.
"There is an assumption that the representatives of the Russian Federation helped Yanukovych to leave Ukraine on February 22 from the territory of Donetsk region but at the moment they are not identified. There is no information on Mezhyhiria. We cannot exclude this but there is no information. There are data that they were at the territory of Donetsk region and helped there the ex-president to leave the country," Gorbatyuk claimed.
Earlier Serhiy Kanev, former reporter of the Center for Investigation Management, who took part in the investigation of The Insider and Bellingcat against the suspects of poisoning Skripal, claimed that Anatoliy Chepiga (Ruslan Boshirov), one of the suspects of poisoning Sergei and Yulia Skripals, lead the operation for transportation of the former president of Ukraine Viktor Yanukovych to Russia in 2014.
The Crown Prosecution Service of the U.K. called the names of the suspects in the poisoning of the ex-GRU officer Sergey Skripal and his daughter Yulia as Evening Standard reported. The police suspected Russians Alexander Petrov and Ruslan Boshirov, accused of the conspiracy with the aim to kill Sergey Skripal, attempted murder of the ex-intelligence agent, Yulia Skripal and Nick Bailey, in use and possession of “Novichok” against the chemical weapons act, infliction of the bodily harm.
Earlier the police of United Kingdom declare that they have identified perpetrators of the attempted assassination of Sergei Skripal and his daughter in Salisbury.
As it was reported earlier, one of the suspects of poisoning Sergei Skripal in British Salisbury, Russian Ruslan Boshirov turned out to be Colonel of the Main Intelligence Directorate of Russia (GRU) Anatoliy Chepiga.
In 2014, Russian President Vladimir Putin awarded him the title of Hero of Russia for his participation in the peacekeeping mission. According to The Insider, it can probably be the hostilities in Ukraine.
