The Military Prosecutor’s Office of Ukraine received approval to try in absentia the Russian Black Sea Fleet Commander Alexander Vitko.
This was announced by the Prosecutor General Yuri Lutsenko at a press conference.
“A few days ago the Military Prosecutor’s Office received the judge’s permission for a special pre-trial investigation to try in absentia the Black Sea Fleet Commander Vitko. It’s not just a piece of paper, it’s a big deal,” said the Prosecutor.
Earlier the Military Prosecutor’s Office served a suspicion of committing exceptionally aggravated criminal offences against Ukraine on Vitko.
