Today, the 30th of September, the Prosecutor General of Ukraine Yuriy Lutsenko has promulgated a letter from the Russian Prosecutor General’s Office, which contains data about 590 prosecutors from Crimea, which entered into the service of the occupiers.
“Yesterday I received a letter from the Russian Prosecutor General’s Office. They are very concerned about our criminal prosecution of prosecutors from Crimea for treason. They bring to my attention that Yanukovych (ex-President of Ukraine — ed.) signed a decree on renunciation from Ukrainian citizenship of 590 prosecutors in March 2014,” wrote Lutsenko on his Facebook.
According to him, thanks to the official letter from the Russian Prosecutor General’s Office Ukrainian investigators received irrefutable proof of fault of 299 former Ukrainian prosecutors, who have been already served with charges. In addition, also data has been received about other 291 traitors. “With this in mind, I signed a certificate of gratitude to the head of the Public Prosecutor’s Office of the Russian Federation,” added Lutsenko.
He stressed that the decree signed by Yanukovych was not legally binding. “A real Decree of the President of Ukraine must be indorsed by his signature and sealed with the State Seal. Fortunately Yanukovych forgot to steal the Seal,” speaks the Prosecutor General of Ukraine ironically.
As a reminder, Viktor Yanukovych was stripped of the post of the President of Ukraine on February 22, 2014 when the Verkhovna Rada adopted the Decree on the New Presidential Election due to Yanukovych’s self-removal from his duties.
