In Kyiv, a meeting on the case of ex-President Viktor Yanukovych came to an end in Pechersk district court, the correspondent of "112 Ukraine" reported.

The meeting concluded that the defense in the face of his lawyer Vitaliy Serdyuk asked for the disqualification of the investigative judge, citing the fact that there is a reason to express distrust to the court due to pressure on the servants of the court.

"The prosecution believes that lawyers are delaying the meeting. Yanukovych lawyers insist that ex-president wants to testify on Skype or other means, prosecutors say, because the location of Yanukovych is not established such a connection is not possible. When the meeting is to resume, when a new judge will be appointed - it is unknown ," the correspondent noted.
