"After yesterday’s decision by Sviatoshyn District Court to conduct an interrogation on Friday, November 25, there were comments of representatives of the prosecutor's office, who expressed doubts about the possibility of questioning in videoconference format. In this regard, I declare that a successful video test was conducted between the courts of Rostov and Kyiv. It is completely unclear what gave reason to the prosecutor's office to believe that there could be technical problems. The only possible explanation is the presence of a large number of officials who are not interested in getting public testimony from Yanukovych on the "Berkut" case, so these persons may prepare disruption of live video,” statement says.

The lawyer appealed to the State Court Administration with the requirement to ensure that a reliable and high-quality video communication between Rostov and Sviatoshyn court from Ukrainian side.
