The president emphasized that all those guilty of the execution of Maidan activists must be brought to justice, inter alia, those, who gave the criminal orders. This information "increases the evidence base substantially and helps bring to justice not only those who killed Ukrainian Heroes, but also those who ordered the murder and provided the weaponry".

The president will demand the parliament to make amendments to the law on trial in absentia at the coming parliamentary session.
