International criminal court (ICC) not to open a case inquiry, the events on Independence square in Kiev in February last year by making it to the jurisdiction of Ukrainian law enforcement agencies, suggested Deputy Prosecutor General of Ukraine Vitaliy KASKO.
"The mission (of the prosecutors of the ICC) came, they were given all the documentation. They are in the stage of decision making. Apparently, more inclined to believe that in the case of Maidan, probably, the Ukrainian law enforcement bodies are obliged to conduct the proceedings. On the one hand, this is bad, and the reverse - it may be good, "said KASKO RIA" Novosti ".
However, he clarified that he considers ineffective the trial for the death of people on Maidan and in Odessa tragedy on may 2, 2014. Kiev's main square ? independence ? was occupied by supporters of European integration November 21, 2013, immediately after the statement of the government Mykola Azarov about temporary suspension of the signing of the Treaty on the Union With the EU. Later Maidan became the epicenter of confrontation between security forces and radicals. In the end, lost their lives more than 100 people. On 16 October, 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. On 20 October the head of the Department of special investigations the main investigation Department of the Prosecutor General of Ukraine Serhiy Gorbatyuk said that the Ministry has no evidence of belonging of the Russian side to be shot active participants in the center of Kiev during the protests in February 2014. In mid-April, Valentyn Nalyvaychenko, who was then a post of the head of the SBU, said that during the events on Maidan in February 2014, the President's adviser, Vladislav Surkov, as if he was in Kiev. While Shokin said that the SBU did not provide the Prosecutor's office of Ukraine not a single evidence of this. In response to this the Russian Foreign Ministry told 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 ".
