The prosecutor general also expects Horbatiuk to refer the materials of probes in absentia against former government officials to court.

"I think the society is willing to see the performers, the actual killers [of Maidan activists - ed.] and the organizers of those atrocities finally brought to justice. I expect Serhii Horbatiuk and more than 100 of his subordinates to show progress in probing these cases, and I don't exclude that after consultations with the lawyers of the Heavenly Hundreds Heroes, these cases may be referred to the International Criminal Court, which delegation arrives in Ukraine as early as this week," UNIAN news agency quotes Lutsenko as saying.
