The Prosecutor General's Office of Ukraine will direct additional documents concerning events during Euromaidan to the International Criminal Court within 2-3 months. This was reported by the Head of Special Investigations Department of the Prosecutor General ’s Office Sergiy Gorbatyuk in his comment for 112 Ukraine TV channel.

"I can only say about materials related to the events on Maidan. We are planning to transfer additional materials within two, maximum three months, "Gorbatyuk announced.

Materials on Maidan, Crimea and Donbas will be considered by the Court separately and decision on those cases will also be made separately, he added.

"They will be considered separately, because there were two appeals of the Verkhovna Rada. The first one is the appeal to the ICC to extend the jurisdiction on the events on Maidan, and then another one concerning the annexation of Crimea and Donbas. Although initially they will be considered separately, the Prosecutor General mentioned possible relation between these events. The representatives of ICC agreed that this version has to be taken into account, but we have to have enough evidence to prove that these events are connected. They do not exclude such possibility, but now the decision on them will be taken separately, " Sergiy Gorbatyuk noted.
