 Probe into Maidan slaughter lacked efficiency for two years, - Deputy Prosecutor General Storozhuk

The search in the premises of former officials, including former Head of the Presidential Administration of Ukraine Andrii Kliuiev, is more than a forced procedural step.

As reported by Censor.NET citing 112 Ukraine, this was announced by First Deputy Prosecutor General of Ukraine Dmytro Storozhuk.

"I am confident that we will find enough materials to be attached to the case [on the Maidan crackdown - ed.]. Their assessment will be made by court. But it is not just a forced procedural step," Storozhuk said.

He noted that investigators had to start searching for the organizers of the Maidan slaughter two years ago.

"What could these investigations reveal? They may tell us if there really were corresponding instructions, supporting materials, minutes of relevant meetings. Today, our task is to punish not only the perpetrators that became hostages to their leadership's orders. These cases have got a new impetus," he said.

Storozhuk also shared his opinion on the perspective of the cases.

"I can say only one thing: these cases, to put it mildly, have lacked an efficient investigation for two years. They contain very few facts that we can really take to court. A lot of work is still to be done," the deputy prosecutor general remarked.
