MOSCOW, October 19. /TASS/. The Russian Ministry of Justice has confirmed it had received a request from Ukraine on questioning former Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych and former interior troops commander, Stanislav Shulyak, through a video conference. The query regarding the interrogations of Yanukovych and Shulyak as witnesses in the case of the former Berkut special police force fighters was sent by Kiev’s Svyatoshinsky District Court.
"The Russian Ministry of Justice received the above-mentioned queries from the Ukrainian Ministry of Justice addressed to Sovetsky District Court of Rostov-on-Don. They have been forwarded to a Russian court. When the criminal case files are received after they are examined, the Russian Ministry of Justice will inform the Ukrainian side about this," the Russian Ministry of Justice said.
