Lutsenko describes how Yanukovych criminal case materials were faked

“I was really astonished by prosecutor general’s press conference where he acted as Viktor Yanukovych’s defense council,” such was the comment by acting Interior Minister Lutsenko on PG Oleksandr Medvedko declaration that Yanukovych had been twice put behind bars unlawfully. Lutsenko was addressing journalists in Lviv Feb. 2, ZIK reports.

The ministry examined Yanukovych case materials back in 2005, Lutsenko recounted. Experts pointed out that some of the case documents had been replaced as they were printed on a different brand of paper and on the type-writer never used in that court, filed in a different way and bore signatures of a judge and court secretary unrelated to the case in question, Lutsenko said. 
Following the case falsification, Donetsk oblast prosecutor Bahanets opened a criminal investigation, but the PGO in Kyiv demanded Bahanets to submit the case to Kyiv where the case was closed “due to the lack of incriminating evidence,” Lutsenko continued.
 “It is against the law to close a case due to the lack of evidence while the conclusions made by experts indicated falsification of case materials. The case was closed for political reasons to whitewash Yanukovych before his appointment as premier in 2007,” Lutsenko commented.
 “Now Prosecutor General Medvedko again repeats his previous declarations based on falsified case materials that Yanukovych had been convicted unlawfully,” Lutsenko concluded.

On the one hand, Russia is brainwashing the Crimean population, while, on the other, promotes the atmosphere of Stalin purges in 1930’s, urging the locals to squeal on one another, Rustem Abliatif, the activist of the “Public Blockade of Crimea” NGO, told ZIK Jan. 29.

The overall economic situation on the peninsula is grim. There is a deficit of pharmaceuticals, Ukrainian consumer goods and electricity, he said.

Meanwhile, the Russian propaganda machine is powerful and uninterrupted. The locals are brainwashed into believing that, for Russia’s annexation in 2014, there would be a war on the peninsula, the same going on in Donbas.

Crimean no longer exchange opinions in queues as before. The atmosphere of Stalin’s days in the 1930’ is clearly there, the activist said.

The Russian authorities are siccing locals on each other, encouraging them to squeal – for money, the activist told.

Ukraine asked the Security Council to consider Pres Putin’s recent declarations doubting validity of Ukraine borders.

Putin’s declarations question the validity of Ukraine border with Russia and threaten the country’s independence and integrity, Ukraine representative to the UN said, addressing the debate.

Putin’s declarations violate the UN charter and Helsinki 1975 act, Ukrainians said.

Putin must stop his belligerent rhetoric and threats to Ukraine, Ukraine diplomats said.

Recall that Putin noted that the border between Russia and Ukraine had been drawn irresponsibly, and the inclusion of Donbas in Ukraine had been a stupidity.
