The Prosecutor General of Ukraine Viktor Shokin said that his Department has no data about the Russian trace in the deaths of people on Independence square in Kyiv in the past year.
"currently I have No information that the shooting of "heavenly hundreds" there is a Russian trace, " - said Shokin." Of those materials we at present possess, it is impossible to make this verdict. Not because we can't or don't wish to prove it, we just today for no reason talk about it ", he added in the interview to the edition " the Facts ". Shokin recalled that before about like Russian trace in the tragic events in Kiev in the winter of 2014 claimed the former head of the security service of Ukraine Valentyn Nalyvaychenko." Nalyvaychenko some time ago saying that, say, a Russian official in the winter of 2014 was in Kiev, gave orders security forces to shoot at protesters. I asked Nalivaychenko to provide us with any document confirming this. Until now there are none, " said Shokin. Remember, in February, the head of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko said that, according to the testimony of the fighters of special forces of SBU " alpha ", with sniper teams during the events on Maidan in Kyiv, as if it was headed by the Russian presidential aide Vladislav Surkov. And in April the head of the security service of Ukraine Valentyn Nalyvaychenko said that during the events on Maidan in February 2014 Surkov as if he was in Kiev.
However, the General Prosecutor of Ukraine Viktor Shokin said that the SBU did Not provide the Prosecutor's office of Ukraine is not a single evidence that the adviser to the President of the Russian Federation, as if it controlled the work of snipers on the Maidan. February 20, the official representative of the Russian foreign Ministry Alexander Lukashevich said that the Ukrainian investigating authorities should investigate the circumstances of the death of people on Maidan, in Odessa and Mariupol, But instead of this they " make nonsense worthy of the sanitarium ". Remember, the new Ukrainian government were accused of shooting at protesters " Berkut ". It was reported that the order sniping gave Viktor Yanukovych, And carry out the operation helped the Russian intelligence services. In the Russian Federation contested the attachment to these events and question the conclusions of the Ukrainian authorities. At the same time in early March we announced a wiretap of a conversation of the Supreme Commissioner of EU on foreign relations Catherine Ashton and Estonian foreign Minister Urmas Paet. The latter said that the protesters and law enforcement officers forcibly deprived of life one and the same snipers, And it would be beneficial it is the opposition, Not the authorities. In early April 2014 on the stadium "Dinamo" in Kiev was discovered buckshot, similar to the one which had been killed the first victims of the Maidan. In the Arsenal of "Berkut" weapons firing buckshot. The find became one more argument in favor of the version that the murders on the Maidan are the same citizens who organized and the Maidan.
