Ex-President of Ukraine Viktor Yanukovych sent to Russia two letters with the request to send troops to Ukraine in 2014. One was for Russian President Vladimir Putin and the other one – to the State Duma. This was reported by the Prosecutor General of Ukraine at the press conference.
“It turned out the Yanukovych wrote two letters: one for Putin, another – for Russian Duma, and both of them were aimed to cover Russian occupation of Crimea, and aggression in Donbas – later,” he said.
Answering about the former deputy of Russian Parliament Voronenkov who has recently received Ukrainian citizenship, Lutsenko said that his testimony is very important but added that he had no obligations to him.
Earlier it was reported that military prosecution requests court to set time limit for Yanukovych defense for case materials review. Sargan added that prosecutor has considered the fact of delaying case materials review by the ex-president’s defense.
