A total of 35 verdicts have been delivered by courts in the cases of Maidan crimes, but only one person has been sentenced to prison.

This was announced by head of the Special Investigations Department of the Prosecutor General's Office of Ukraine (PGO) Serhii Horbatiuk, Censor.NET reports citing Ukrinform.

As of today, Horbatiuk said, notices of suspicions were served to more than 340 persons. The indictments against 220 persons have been submitted to court.

"The only thing that gives rise to criticism is consideration of the cases in court. Out of 220 indictments, only 35 judgments have been delivered. In fact, only one person, a so-called "titushka" (paid protester - ed.) was sentenced to real imprisonment," Horbatiuk said.
