November 25, 2016 (Interfax-Ukraine New Agency) A judge of Kyiv's Sviatoshynsky district court has rescheduled hearings with the questioning via skype conferencing of former president Viktor Yanukovych as a witness in a Maidan killing case. "Having consulted on the issue, the court has decided to declare the hearing held in pursuance of a request for international assistance as rescheduled for 13:00 Kyiv time (14:00 Moscow time) on November 28, 2016," the judge said during a court session in Kyiv on Friday.

Before the announcement of this decision in Kyiv, a judge from a court in Rostov, where Yanukovych came to witness, confirmed via video conferencing that the former Ukrainian president's video questioning could take place on November 28. Yanukovych is a witness on the case of former five Berkut riot policemen who are charged with killings of Euromaidan activists.
