Obolonskyi District Court of Kyiv to consider the case regarding state treason of fugitive Ukrainian president Viktor Yanukovych on Thursday, May 4, at 10 a.m., according to the schedule of court hearings.

The case will be considered by the panel of judges including presiding judge Vladislav Devyatko, as well as judges Dmytro Kambulov and Maksym Tytov.

As it was reported earlier, military prosecutor’s office passed the bill of indictment in this case to the court on March 14.

Viktor Yanukovych served as the president of Ukraine in 2010-2014. He was ousted during the anti-government protests, known as the Revolution of Dignity in February 2014. Back then, Yanukovych and his sidekicks fled the country; the ex-Ukrainian leader has been residing in Russia ever since. The Ukrainian government repeatedly demanded that Yanukovych be repatriated, but Russia refused. The Prosecutor General’s Office of Ukraine charges Yanukovych of state treason, supporting Russian officials responsible for violating Ukraine’s sovereignty and territorial integrity, as well as waging aggressive war.
