The court debates on the state treason case of former Ukraine's president Viktor Yanukovych were postponed to Tuesday, July 31 as the correspondent of 112 Ukraine reported on the results of today's court session.

The reason for the postponement is a non-appearance of the lawyers of Yanukovych for the court session. Today it lasted five minutes. The advocates filed the request to the court that they will not come for today's session as the request for the modification of the jurisdiction of the state treason case was considered by Supreme Court the same day.
