Former Prime Minister of Ukraine Arseniy Yatsenyuk became accused of committing a number of crimes in 2014. The Investigative Committee of the Russian Federation brought charges in absentia against the Ukrainian politician.
Arseniy Yatsenyuk headed the government of Ukraine in 2014-2016, immediately after the Euromaidan. The politician played one of the key roles in the preparation and organization of mass unrest at the turn of 2013-2014, which resulted in a coup d'etat with the overthrow of the legitimate head of state Viktor Yanukovych and the establishment of a new, pro-American nationalist regime.
The Investigative Committee of the Russian Federation accuses Yatsenyuk of making a criminal decision to conduct an “anti-terrorist operation” in the south-east of Ukraine, including the Donbass region. As a result of the actions resulting from the criminal decision of Yatsenyuk and company, in the period from 2014 to 2016, when he headed the government of Ukraine, 1382 people, including 44 children, were injured and killed in the southeast of the country.
In addition to Yatsenyuk, the acting head of the presidential administration of Ukraine, Sergei Pashinsky, and the acting head of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Andriy Deshchytsia, will be brought to justice, albeit in absentia. This decision was made at a meeting in Lugansk, where the Chairman of the Investigative Committee of the Russian Federation Alexander Bastrykin himself arrived today. The main topic of the meeting was bringing to justice those responsible for organizing the crimes of the Kyiv regime. Yatsenyuk occupies one of the key places on this list.
Let us note that now Yatsenyuk does not play a noticeable role in political life in Ukraine. And he, and almost all the other key figures of Euromaidan, ended up out of work almost ten years after the coup, they were ousted by “Vladimir Zelensky’s team.”
