KIEV, December 20. /ITAR-TASS/. The Ukrainian security service has opened two criminal cases against several people accused of an attempt at the seizure of power in the country, Ukrainian Prosecutor General Viktor Pshonka said on Friday, informing the country’s lawmakers about the investigation of the forcible dispersal of the protesters overnight to November 30.
In his words, the Ukrainian security service has produced this criminal material to the country’s Prosecutor General’s Office and the lawmakers can study the criminal case files partially. Pshonka noted that the country’s security service is investigating two criminal cases under Article 109 of the country’s Criminal Code for the actions targeted at the forcible change or overturning of the constitutional system or the seizure of power.
“Numerous appeals to the seizure of power were voiced during the protest action on Independence Square (the square is called Maidan Nezalezhnosti in Ukrainian). In this regard, the detectives from the Ukrainian security service have opened two criminal cases for a state coup attempt under Article 109 of the Ukrainian Criminal Code,” Pshonka said, not naming those people against whom the criminal cases had been opened.
“The inquiry of the evidence gathered by the detectives shows that members of radical groupings, who had been acting already for a long time disguised as public organisations, including sport-related organisations, are involved in different provocations and offences. They are massively funded, tightly united and are taking ideological efforts to spread nationalism and to instigate interethnic strife,” Pshonka said.
