"On May 4, an unprecedented trial for Ukraine will begin. The Prosecutor General's Office on behalf of the state of Ukraine will charge the former president of high treason. This process is not only about citizen Yanukovych. This process is about his Kremlin masters, who used the sheet of paper signed by Yanukovych as a fig leaf to occupy Ukrainian Crimea," Lutsenko said.

The head of the PGO stressed this trial will be "totally different from the mock trials of the Yanukovych era, one of which I had to go through," and the rights of the suspect will be guaranteed.

Lutsenko said this trial is very important not only from legislative point of view, but also as a warning to all who might want to sell their country.

On April 28 PGO announced that $1.5 billion kept on bank accounts of ex-President Viktor Yanukovych and his cronies that were later attached by the court decision had been transferred to the accounts of the State Treasury Service of Ukraine.
