Obolonsky District Court of Kyiv will continue considering the case on charges of ex-President of Ukraine Viktor Yanukovych in high treason on August 15 at 2:00 p.m.

The break was announced by the presiding judge Vladyslav Deviatko after a four-hours seating on August 10, at which the court began to study the evidence of the charge. One of the reasons for the shifting of the case hearing the judge called the need for his participation in the consideration of another important criminal case, an Interfax-Ukraine correspondent reported.

At the next meeting on August 15, the court plans to interrogate the prosecution’s witness – former permanent representative of Ukraine to the UN Yuriy Serheyev.

Yanukovych on November 28, 2016 was named a suspect in a criminal case pursuant to Part 1 of Article 111 (state treason), Part 5 of Article 27, Part 3 of Article 110 (abetting deliberate acts committed with the aim of changing Ukrainian state borders in violation of the Constitution of Ukraine) and Part 5 of Article 27, Part 2 of Article 437 (abetting military aggression against Ukraine) of the Criminal Code of Ukraine.
