The Prosecutor General’s Office of Ukraine plans to question Interior Minister Arsen Avakov within the case of the possible assassination attempt on ex-president Viktor Yanukovych in 2014. UNN reported this, citing its own sources.
According to the source, Avakov was properly summoned.
However, the official file did not specify the date of the questioning.
The Prosecutor General’s Office holds the pretrial investigation of the criminal proceeding opened on May 29, 2015 due to the “commitment of the intentional actions by unknown, with the use of the fire arms aiming for the intentional homicide” of ex-president Viktor Yanukovych, which took place from February 21 until April 22, 2014.
In June 2018, Pechersk District Court of Kyiv obliged the prosecutor’s office to file the notice on the procedural rights and commitments of Dmytro Ivantsov, the ex-security guard of Yanukovych. The court recognized him a victim within the case of the possible assassination attempt on ex-president Viktor Yanukovych.
Until this moment, no facts of the assassination attempt on Yanukovych were established.
Yanukovych is 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.
As it was reported earlier, the Chief Military Prosecutor’s Office asks the court to sentence ex-President of Ukraine Viktor Yanukovych to 15 years of imprisonment in the case of state treason, as Prosecutor Maksym Krym said during the debates in the court.
