According to the law, ex-president of Ukraine Viktor Yanukovych has no right to attend the court session on the choosing of the restrictive measure for him in case of shooting in Maidan in 2014, as Hromadske Radio reported citing prosecutor Oleksiy Donsky.
“Another statement – it is anti-jurisprudence and attempts for promotion with the absence of legal moments. The demand of the video-conference is the attempt to prolong the consideration of this appeal for months,” the prosecutor said.
He explained that Yanukovych cannot be a partaker of the session in accordance with the procedure within which the appeals were submitted. However, if Yanukovych gets in video-communication, the prosecutors will consider the issue of the consideration of the case on another procedure.
Donsky noted that Russia fulfills any of the appeals on the international and legal aid. Starting from the confirmation of Yanukovych’s location in Russia and finishing withholding of any procedural actions.
