    Wanted for mass killings of civilians

     

    "Former President Viktor Yanukovych is wanted for “mass killings of civilians,” reported acting Interior Minister Arsen Avakov on the morning of Feb. 24.

     

    In November 2013 Yanukovich could have signed association with EU and gone into history books as European integrator, but instead a week before signing he made 180 degree turn.

     

    In December after the student protest was brutally attacked by riot police Yanukovich could have held responsible those who had used force against peaceful protesters and that would be the end of crisis. But he didn't. Instead he tried again to dismiss Maidan by force.

     

    In January he could have fired Prime Minister Azarov as protesters demanded by then but instead he pushed dictatorial laws that were meant to make any protests illegal in Ukraine and peaceful protest turned into violence.

     

    In the beginning of February he could have announced early elections and he could have still gone free with all the money he had stolen over the years from Ukraine. But he chose to rain bullets on protesters.

     

    Now he is wanted for mass killings of civilians and he is on a run.
