The appeal against the arrest in absentia for ex-president of Ukraine Viktor Yanukovych in case of usurpation of power will be considered by Kyiv Appeal Court in September as Ukrinform reported citing lawyer association Aver Lex.
“Postponed for September 10,” Aver Lex reported.
On February 4, 2015, the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine deprived Yanukovych of the title of the president as he removed himself from the execution of his authorities and escaped from the country.
The court found Yanukovych guilty of addressing the Russian President Putin and asking him to deploy troops in Ukraine.
Besides, the court sentenced Yanukovych to 13 years of the detention for the state treason and complicity in the holding of the aggressive war against Ukraine by the Russian Federation.
Yanukovych was charged with state treason, assistance in deliberate actions against Ukraine’s state border, sovereignty, and territorial integrity and assistance in leading the aggressive war against Ukraine.
