16:16, 29 May 2017

Obolon district court in Kyiv held another preparatory session in the case of ex-president Viktor Yanukovych. The defendant was allowed joining the session by means of video conference, as he currently lives in Russia.

The former Ukrainian leader faces charges with state treason, assisting in waging aggressive war and assisting in changing Ukraine’s territories and the state border.

As is known, Yanukovych who ruled Ukraine in 2010-2014 fled the country after the victory of Euromaidan activists, the anti-government and pro-EU protesters, in February 2014.
