Lutsenko has announced suspicion to Yanukovych of the high treason and assistance to Russia in its aggression against Ukraine.

He said Yanukovych's written address to Russian President Putin in March 2014 with a request to send in troops led to grave consequences for Ukraine, such as annexation of the Crimean peninsula and financial losses worth 1,080 billion hryvnia ($40 billion).

Lutsenko said Yanukovych had been hiding from prosecution, so the PGO informed him of the suspicion orally and by sending the notice of suspicion to all known addresses of the ex-president.

Earlier, the Sviatoshyn district court of Kyiv intended to interview Yanukovych on Nov. 25 via video call as a witness in the case of Maidan protesters' execution in winter of 2013-2014. However, the hearing was rescheduled for Nov. 28 due to failure to bring suspected former Berkut soldiers to the court.
