The session starts at 10 am.
Earlier, Serhiy Bernatsky, Yanukovych's former bodyguard, was questioned today. He stated that there was a plan to kill Viktor Yanukovych. As Bernatsky said, the murder was planned by a group of unknown perpetrators who expected Yanukovych to come to Kharkiv on February 22, 2014. When Yanukovych's guards found out about the plan to assassinate him, the ex-president cancelled his visit to Kharkiv.
The Court intends to question Mykola Azarov, Andriy Klyuyev, Oleksandr Yakymenko, Pavlo Lebedyev, Arkadiy Yaroshchuk, Kostyantyn Kobzar, Vitaliy Zakharchenko and probably the accused himself.
Obolon District Court of Kyiv intends to finish the consideration of the case of former president of Ukraine Viktor Yanukovych suspected in the state treason until August 1.

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.
