Currently, we obtain court permits to choose pre-trial restrictions in form of detention in the absence of suspects and further permission to conduct special investigation in absentia. If the work continues in this direction, we will soon complete and send to court the cases against all the organizers and perpetrators who evade the investigation and the trial and stay in Russia," Artem Yablonskyi, Deputy Head of the SBI department for Euromaidan cases, announced at a press conference, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.
