Prosecutor General Vitalii Yarema told reporters, Censor.NET informs citing UNIAN. "Seven people including Yanukovych were not put in wanted list by Interpol today... They (the Interpol officials) said they identified political persecution in Yanukovych case," he said. According to Yarema, this list includes former Interior Minister Vitalii Zakharchenko and former Prosecutor General Viktor Pshonka.
Yarema said that the Prosecutor General's Office has submitted all necessary materials, which should become the basis to issue an international arrest warrant against such persons, but Interpol refuses to do this. Censor.NET previously reported that the Interior Ministry accuses Interpol of being politically charged when the agency refused to put Yanukovych and his associates in the international wanted list.
