As Censor.NET reports, Prosecutor General of Ukraine Yurii Lutsenko wrote on Facebook.
"The case of Valentyn Lykholit is a reflection of the state's attitude to its defenders who are not saints. As every anti-terrorist operation (ATO) soldier, 'Batia' should be held responsible for his actions. The court will make a decision," he wrote.
"However, it is important to ensure the dignity of a defender of the Motherland while choosing a preventive measure of restraint. That's why I came to the court and received a word of a warrior from Valentyn. As a result, the court made the right decision," Lutsenko stressed.
"Now MPs have to make one more important step and take a decision to release from liability the servicemen who violated the civilian Criminal Code during wartime," he added.
Earlier, the Prosecutor General's Office charged two Aidar soldiers with a number of grave crimes. Later it turned out that one of them was Aidar's legend Valentyn Lykholit (call sign "Batia"). Criminal proceeding against him was opened on suspicion of organization of an armed gang, robbery, burglary, and kidnapping of two or more persons. According to the investigators, the fighter violated the Constitution and the Charter of the Ukrainian Armed Forces several times, as well as improperly performed his duties.
The Pechersk court appointed two months detention as the measure of restraint for Lykholit.
Later it turned out that Lykholit was released on bail of people's deputies.
