Ukraine’s Prosecutor General Yuriy Lutsenko doesn’t rule out that the cases of the murdered Euromaidan activists could be sent to the International Criminal Court in Hague.

‘I think the society wants the killers, and those who masterminded these crimes to be brought to justice in the end. I expect progress on these cases from Serhiy Horbatyuk, chief of the Special Investigations department at the Prosecutor General's Office, and more than a hundred agents working under his supervision. And I do not rule out that these cases could be, upon agreement with the lawyers of the Heavenly Hundred Heroes, sent to the International Criminal Court whose delegation is expected to arrive in Ukraine this week,’ Lutsenko said at a briefing in Kyiv on Tuesday.

The Heavenly Hundred is a collective name for the Euromaidan activists who were killed during the Revolution of Dignity in Kyiv in February 2014. More than a hundred of unarmed people (and several policemen as well) were either shot dead, bludgeoned or otherwise murdered during violent street clashes between the protesters and the riot police in the Ukrainian capital.
