This was said during press conference dedicated to status of investigation of crimes against the Revolution of Dignity. There will be created Commission for prosecution of people involved in crimes committed during Euromaidan initiated by Public Sector of Euromaidan in Verkhovna Rada and Deputy Igor Lutsenko.
‘The day of dispersal of student Maidan on November 30 2013 changed our history forever. This day is getting far from us and those who shed human blood on Maidan hope and time is working for them. They hope that we will gradually forget about this, distract to other current problems. But we remember. The evil grows and multiplies until it is punished’, – says Oleg Slabospytskiy.
Commission on prosecution of persons involved in the crimes committed during Euromaidan, with participation of deputies from different political fractions, will perform public and deputy control over the process of investigation of crimes against peaceful protesters over the whole Ukraine during Revolution of Dignity.
‘This commission would be powerless if the is no public pressure. I am pleased to respond to the initiative of the Public Sector of Euromaidan. I believe that we can achieve results together’, – said Igor Lutsenko.
In addition, speakers announced summarized data about number of victims and condemned for their crimes during Euromaidan and also response of state authorities concerning state of investigation as of November 2014.
