Moscow’s Dorogomilovsky Court sustained a case of Verkhovna Rada former deputy Volodymyr Oliynyk and recognized events in Ukraine in 2014 as a coup d’etat.




During the lawsuit the judge Anna Shipikova questioned former senior officials of Ukraine, who headed the presidential administration, the Prosecutor General, the Interior Ministry and SBU. All witnesses stated that clearly regard the events that took place in Kiev as unconstitutional coup d’etat.


According to ex-officials, the European Union threatened to change of power in Ukraine in case of refusal to sign an agreement with the EU on association. In turn, the former head of the SBU Alexander Yakimenko said that all the events on Maidan had been led by the US officials.


Witnesses said that instructors from Georgia, the Baltic countries and Poland were acting at the Maidan. In particular, the former head of Presidential Administration of Ukraine Andriy Klyuyev said that “the snipers on the Maidan were organized by individual representatives from Georgia, also there were snipers from the Baltic States”.


“The Russian people can not remain indifferent to what is happening in Ukraine”, said the judge.
