This has been announced by chief military prosecutor Anatolii Matios, Censor.NET reports referring to 5 Channel.
"An indictment for treason against Yanukovych has been issued. We've had a fact. A citizen of Ukraine who is charged with treason and served as head of state appealed to the president of another country with a request to send Russian troops to the territory of our state. The indictment has been issued and will be sent to court in January. A public process will start," Matios said.
"I think we'll have a first instance court verdict within a month," he added.
"As far as I am aware of the position of the prosecutor general, he wants to join in as a prosecutor of the expert group to be able to support the public prosecution," Matios said.
