Censor.NET reports referring to Interfax-Ukraine citing Prosecutor General Yurii Lutsenko.
"It's beyond the Prosecutor General's Office (PGO) jurisdiction to establish the communication [for questioning via videoconferencing - ed.]. Generally speaking, I consider the intramural questioning of Yanukovych by a Ukrainian court to be the most appropriate," he said.
He expressed doubt that Skype videoconferencing can provide valuable evidence for the investigation.
"Yanukovych has been recently demanding face-to-face confrontations and provision of certain evidence to him. Welcome to Ukraine, welcome to Kyiv! Please, Viktor Fedorovych, come and you'll find justice and law," the prosecutor general stated.
On Nov. 16, the Sviatoshyn district court of Kyiv received a notice from the Rostov regional court of the Russian Federation on the possibility of questioning former President of Ukraine Viktor Yanukovych via videoconferencing. The PGO believes the interview may be conducted on Nov. 25.
