In their opinion, the mere fact that the lawyers of the Berkut officers did not ask for establishing videoconferencing with Lukianivka prison proves the information about a plan to release the suspects from the courtroom.

The activists have not yet made a decision on their further actions and can not say whether they will return to blocking on Nov. 28.

As reported, activists of Right Sector party, Automaidan Kyiv and Vіlnі Liudy (Free People) NGOs came at Lukianivka remand prison in Kyiv to prevent the transfer of former Berkut officers to the Sviatoshyn district court that was going to question former Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych through videoconferencing. With no suspects delivered, the court decided to adjourn the interview until Nov. 28.
