Pecherskiy district cover of Kyiv has allowed a special pre-trial investigation (in absentia) as to ex-President Viktor Yanukovych, ex-Head of the Security Service Oleksandr Yakymenko and ex-Deputy Head of the Security Service Volodymyr Totskiy who are accused in crimes that lead to killings of Maidan activists on Feb. 18-20, 2014. The information comes from the press secretary of Ukraine’s Prosecutor General, Larysa Sarhan, as she wrote on Facebook.

She also said that three other suspects of this criminal proceeding - ex-Interior Minister Vitaliy Zakharchenko, ex-Deputy Interior Minister Viktor Raushniak, and ex-Deputy Head of Police of public security in Kyiv Petro Fedchuk - such motions of prosecutors will be heard in the nearest future.

“I’ll remind that it has to do with the events of Euromaidan of Feb. 18-20, 2014. All six individuals of the criminal proceeding are wanted, and they are evading trial and investigation,” she noted.
