"The families of Yanukovych, Pshonka and Azarov have managed to agree with [Russian President Vladimir] Putin on the provision of Russian citizenship, and they may feel dry and comfortable. I have learned from operational sources that [Russian] nationality to Ukraine's betrayers had been granted under a separate secret decree of Russian President Vladimir Putin as a reward for their faithful service on the collapse of [Ukraine's] national security, defense, law and order system and economy," he wrote on his Facebook page on Friday.

In this regard, Heraschenko said he was in favor of amending the constitution and law "in terms of depriving betrayers of nationality."
