Former Ukraine President Viktor Yanukovych, who was impeached after deserting Kyiv and fleeing to Russia on February 24, 2014, has been found guilty of three felonies of the Criminal Code of Ukraine.
• Part 1 of Art. 111 (state betrayal)
• Part 5 of Art. 27, Part 3 of Art. 110 (aiding in intentional actions committed to change the boundaries of the territory and the state border of Ukraine)
• Part 5 of Art. 27, Part 3 of Art. 437 (aiding in an aggressive war)
Yanukovych testified on three occasions via a video teleconference from Russia. He had both appointed and hired defense counsels. One of the main items of evidence in the case is a letter from Yanukovych to Russian President Vladimir Putin asking for Russian troops to enter Ukraine. Over 100 protesters died at Maidan. The prosecution requested that Yanukovych be sentenced in absentia, to 15 years in prison. I would have requested that Yanukovych be hanged for treason, but there is no death penalty in Ukraine. Yanukovych is 68 years old. No sentence will be carried out here because Moscow refuses to extradite any wanted foreign and domestic criminals it is sheltering.
