Sovietsky district court of Rostov-on-Don in Russia has refused to question via videoconferencing ex-president Yanukovych of Ukraine and ex-commander of interior troops of Ukraine Stanislav Shuliak.

This was announced by court's assistant chairman Artur Maslov, Censor.NET reports citing Interfax-Ukraine.

"We have received a court order to question Yanukovych and Shuliak via videoconferencing. However, such a questioning is not possible due to lack of technical means: a videoconferencing system is not available in court. Moreover, the order does not specify the dwelling addresses of Victor Yanukovych and Stanislav Shuliak," Maslov said.
