About it on air of TV channel «112 Ukraine» said the head of the Department of special investigations of the GPU Sergey Gorbatyuk.

The court released one of the ex-«Berkut officers», a suspect in the murders on the Maidan

«We’re talking about episode 20 February, in which he is accused of involvement in the executions of 26 «Berkut», 5 of which are in the custody and place of the hearing. Others wanted. We take into account the operational data that they can stay on the territory of the Russian Federation sent requests for their extradition from Russia.
