The lawyer also told on what the terms of the trial depend.

“The legislative shortcomings are the barriers – the fact that the duration of the transitional provisions, which allowed consideration of the case in absentia expires. Amendments to the Criminal Code of Ukraine are required to pass this case to the court,” Galabala said.

As it was reported, on February 20, Ukraine commemorates the heroes of the Heavenly Hundred.
