17:40, 23 February 2017

Kyiv district court continues hearing the case of five former Berkut officers today.

Ex-law enforcers are accused of killing 48 protesters on Instytutska street on February twenty 20, 2014.

Twenty five Berkut officers were served charge papers. But only five of them were taken into custody. Another twenty are wanted.

Prosecutor General’s Office reported that 14 ex-officers received Russian citizenship. Two others were granted asylum in Russia. Moscow refuses to extradite them for this reason.
