As reported by Censor.NET referring to UNIAN, this was said by Head of the PGO's Special Investigations Department Serhii Horbatiuk.
According to him, the testimony can be used not only in the case against Berkut soldiers with Yanukovych as a witness, but also in the criminal proceedings with the ex-president considered a suspect.
"We are going to request the court (in Rostov, the Russian Federation - Ed.) to provide the hard copy of testimony for the investigation to scrutinize it. This is its purpose regardless of its content. Of course, it is more important to obtain comprehensive testimony as it will be easier to check if it matches the established circumstances of the case. In addition, the testimony can be psychologically examined to identify emotions or other signs of inveracity. We have obtained a wide range of instruments for further work while we had absolutely nothing prior to that," Horbatiuk stressed.
On Nov. 28, Prosecutor General Yurii Lutsenko read out an indictment against Yanukovych on allegations of treason as he was questioned by the Sviatoshynskyi district court of Kyiv via videoconferencing from Russian Rostov-on-Don. The PGO summoned Yanukovych for questioning as a suspect in the case initiated into high treason and complicity for Russia's aggression against Ukraine on Dec. 5 and 9.
