Prosecutor General’s Office of Ukraine still has not found the murderers of Serhiy Nigoyan, Mykhailo Zhyznevsky and Roman Senyk; these three assassinations led to the active phase of the street opposition in Kyiv in early 2014. Serhiy Horbatyuk, the Chief of Special Investigations Department of Prosecutor General’s Office said that at a briefing in Kyiv on Tuesday.  

‘Unfortunately, the murders of Serhiy Nigoyan, Mykhailo Zhyznevsky and Roman Senyk are not solved yet. We still don’t know the names of those who fired guns and killed them. In the case of Nigoyan, we found out that the murderer fired a slug cartridge; Senyk and Zhyznevsky were killed with special cartridges, used solely by the police; the shooters usually use them to force a vehicle to stop moving… The investigation is underway. There is certain progress in it, and I hope these crimes will be solved’, he said.

On November 21, Ukrainians mark the anniversary of the Euromaidan movement. It was November 21, 2013, when peaceful demonstration began in the downtown Kyiv; protesters demanded that the-then government sign the EU-Ukraine Association Agreement. The protests turned violent on November 30, when the crackdown took place, and students were beaten and detained by the police. Since then, the movement saw several spikes of violence and street fights. They eventually led to the tragic culmination of the Revolution of Dignity, when several dozens of unarmed protesters and about a dozen law enforcers were killed. The investigation into these bloody murders has been underway ever since.
