The State Bureau of Investigation (GBR) of Ukraine launched an investigation against investigators from the Prosecutor General’s Office, who “prevented the collection of evidence on the facts of the assassination of Viktor Yanukovych and the employees of the State Security Service in 2014”. The lawyer of the fourth president, Vitaly Serdyuk, said this on his Facebook page on July 8

Earlier, Yanukovych claimed that during his escape from Ukraine he was assassinated – the president’s car was fired upon, as a result of which a security officer of the president was injured.
According to Serdyuk, “for the sake of the political situation”, GPU investigators conducting the assassination case systematically engaged in manipulations and avoided the start of an investigation into this crime in every possible way. Accordingly, criminal proceedings were opened against them under Part 2 of Art. 397 and h. 3 Art. 382 of the Criminal Code of Ukraine.
In addition, the defense sought recognition as a victim of state security officer Dmitry Ivantsov, who in February 2014 was in the car of Yanukovych’s motorcade during the assassination attempt and received a bullet wound.
“During this time, the Pechersk district court made two decisions obliging the GPU to initiate investigations into the attempt on the life of Viktor Yanukovych and UGO employee Dmitry Ivantsov, but they were ignored under various pretexts to freeze the process … The GPU was forced to admit the illegality of the actions of its employees and said, that it was decided to satisfy the requirements and transfer the case against its employees for investigation to the State Bureau of Investigation, ”said Serdyuk.
In his opinion, this fact once again confirms political motivation not only in this, but in all other cases initiated in Ukraine against Yanukovych.
