President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko hopes that his testimony will help complete the investigation of the deaths of people during the Euromaidan in 2014. About this he wrote in Facebook.
The Ukrainian leader added that the investigation is extremely important for Ukrainian society. “I am convinced that all the guilty must be punished,” he concluded.
Poroshenko came in for questioning to the Prosecutor General on 10 may. In Prosecutor’s office noted that the President of Ukraine should sign the Protocol of interrogation conducted in 2016 and to give additional testimony.
In 2013 — early 2014 in Ukraine there were mass protests, called “Euromaidan”, which led to the overthrow of then-President Viktor Yanukovych. Clashes with security forces on Maidan Nezalezhnosti (Independence square) in Kiev resulted in the deaths of over 100 people. Many of them became victims of unknown snipers, which the current government is associated with Yanukovych, but the fault of the former head of the Republic has not yet been proven in court.
