A former Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych, who is suspected of state treason, will hold a press conference on March 2 in Russia about the shootings at Maidan four years ago. This is reported by TASS.
"Viktor Yanukovych will talk about new evidence of the involvement of representatives of the current Ukrainian authorities in the shooting of protesters at Maidan, as well as the lawsuit initiated by the Kyiv authorities," reads the press conference announcement: the event will start at 11:00 Moscow time.
We recall, on February 21, Poroshenko was interrogated as a witness of the prosecution in the Obolonsky court of Kyiv, which is considering the case of Yanukovych's state treason. Due to security measures and a tight schedule, the interrogation was held in a videoconference mode with the Presidential Administration. After a series of questions from Yanukovych's lawyers, which are not related to the subject of the state treason case, the court stopped the interrogation of the president.
