The direct participants in the events gave their testimonies at a session of the Shevchenko district court in Kyiv. Human rights activist Stanislav Batrin, who has issued the claim, believes that the case has got off square one for the first time. The facts that have been voiced fuel confidence in the successful completion of the trial.
"Today, we have heard facts that the officials haven't voiced over the past year. We have seen people who were menaced with guns, tortured and forced to say things contrary to the public interest. These facts have become subjects of litigation today," Batrin said.
According to 'Syla Prava' (force of law) NGO Head Andrii Senchenko, who served as the Presidential Administration Acting Deputy Head during invasion of Crimea and Donbas, there were all signs of the Russian special service agents presence in Crimea in late February 2014.
"During my meeting with Chairman of the Crimean Parliament Konstantinov, there were 30 people in his office with characteristic appearance speaking a dialect unusual for Crimea," Senchenko said.
