 Questioning of Yanukovych postponed until Nov. 28

The Sviatoshyn district court of Kyiv has adjourned the interview with Viktor Yanukovych until Nov. 28.

This was announced by Judge Serhii Diachuk, Censor.NET reports.

"After deliberation, the court decided to adjourn the hearing, held at the request for international assistance, until 1 p.m. Kyiv time Nov. 28, 2016," Diachuk said.

The decision was due to a failure to bring the ex-Berkut officers accused of Maidan killings to court after activists blocked the way for paddy wagons outside Lukianivka remand prison.
