The former President appealed to the court to initiate proceedings against the attorney General.

The ex-President of Ukraine Viktor Yanukovych has filed a lawsuit in the District administrative court of Kiev with the request to oblige the police to draw up an administrative Protocol against Prosecutor General Yury Lutsenko for insulting remarks about him.

About it reported in a press-service of the court.

“The District administrative court of Kyiv received a claim from Viktor Yanukovych, in which he asks to recognize illegal the decision of the Shevchenkovsky police Department of the Main Directorate of the National police in the city of Kyiv about the failure in compiling a Protocol on administrative offense against Yury Lutsenko under article 173 of the code of Ukraine on administrative offences (petty hooliganism)”, – stated in the message.

As noted, Yanukovych has accused Yury Lutsenko who was in the line of duty, in the exercise of abusive insults and obscene statement against him during a press conference on 18 August.

In this regard, Yanukovych appealed to the court to oblige the UE GUNP Shevchenko in Kyiv to draw up a report on the Lutsenko and transfer the materials of the administrative case for consideration in Shevchenkovsky district court of Kiev.

We will remind, in August the Prosecutor General of Ukraine Yuri Lutsenko during a press briefing supported the initiative of ex-President Viktor Yanukovych to hold a confrontation with President Petro Poroshenko, calling him “a weakling and a traitor of the state”.
