The decision of the European court to cancel EU sanctions against Yanukovych is based on the fact that the prosecution failed to prove the guilt of the former President in the economic and corruption-related crimes. It will put in a difficult situation the new attorney Ruslan Ryaboshapka here.
This 24 channel said political expert Valery Piece.
The Prosecutor General Ryaboshapka here have or continue proceedings against Yanukovych, or close. But if nothing is done, it will again be talking about “political” prosecution of Yanukovych
– said Valery Piece.
The analyst reminds that against Yanukovych was only a court decision in absentia conviction for treason. With regard to criminal proceedings on the organization of mass murder on the Maidan in 2014 – the investigation continues, but lawyers objetivou solutions. To exclude anything. Yanukovych may return to Ukraine – on the condition that he will win the appeal. And it is very negatively perceived in Ukraine – the return of a traitor to the state.
A decision was made by the European court?
According to the press-Secretary of the son of ex-President Yanukovych – Alexander Yuri Cuirassier, the European court on September 24 cancelled the EU sanctions against the Ukrainian President-the fugitive Victor Yanukovych. The restrictions were imposed in 2018-2019. According to him, the lifting of sanctions supposedly confirms “illegality and groundlessness of their introduction”. He also accused Ukraine and the EU in the political prosecution of Yanukovych, who in 2014, have fled to Russia.
At the same time, the lawyer Yanukovych Vitaliy Serdyuk said that the protection is working to ensure the stay of the ex-President in Ukraine. Protection of the former President continues to insist that Ukraine was a “coup d’etat”, in which Yanukovych lost his job.
