As reported by Censor.NET, the law enforcer Wednesday said in the Obolonskyi district court of Kyiv, where the next hearing of Yanukovych’s treason case took place.
"These Yanukovych’s speeches will be of much help to the prosecution. We certainly will collect information on this speech," Kravchenko said.
According to the prosecutor, the announced press conference once again confirms that the defendant is aware of the pace of the legal action against him which means that this trial in absentia is legitimate and violates no human rights.
"The trial in absentia is held in line with Ukrainian legislation and European standards on human rights. There are no violations as one of the prerequisites for undertaking special judicial proceedings is that a defendant must be aware of the legal action held against one," Kravchenko stressed.
As reported, Yanukovych scheduled a press conference in Moscow for March 2 in order to disclose "new evidence of the current Ukrainian authorities’ involvement in deadly attacks on protesters on the Maidan Nezalezhnosti" in 2014.
