According to the lawyer, Yanukovych is complaining of violation by Ukraine of his rights on access to justice and protection. Serdyuk promises that the claim will be sent to the ECHR within one month.

Protection of fugitive ex-President believes that the court’s decision about the beginning of the trial in absentia against Yanukovych is the de facto denial of his right to participate in the process.

Recall, July 6, the lawyers of Viktor Yanukovych, Vitaliy Serdyuk and Igor Fedorenko announced their withdrawal from the trial in the Obolon district court of Kyiv. The defenders of the fugitive stressed that July 6 will not participate in the hearing because Yanukovych wrote a statement that waives their services.

As previously reported, Obolon court of Kyiv allowed the special court proceedings in the case of Viktor Yanukovych. This resolution provided for the absence of Yanukovych, who would have to go with the court on the Skype connection. In absentia proceedings, the prosecutors insisted.

In November 2016, the Prosecutor General Yuri Lutsenko announced the suspicion of treason Viktor Yanukovych in the premises of Sviatoshynsky court, being in direct contact with the Rostov court, where the President is a fugitive. Yanukovych is accused of committing treason, aiding the authorities of the Russian Federation, intentional acts committed for the purpose of modifying the boundaries of the territory and the state border of Ukraine.
