KIEV, December 6. /TASS/. Ukraine has placed 22 people on the wanted list for their suspected role in shooting Maidan protesters and embezzling state funds, Ukrainian Prosecutor General Vitaly Yarema has told the Ukrayina TV channel.

“We have put 22 people on the wanted list in line with criminal proceedings of the Prosecutor General’s Office and the Interior Ministry.
