President: Ukraine must remain a democratic state forever

President Petro Poroshenko informed that the Security Service had identified weapons used to kill Maidan activists.

This has been reported by the press service of the Head of State.

The President noted that the Parliament would adopt a special law on trial in absentia. Currently, it can be initiated solely against persons declared internationally wanted by Interpol.

"It shouldn't let criminals hide in Russia. We are now starting court proceedings, evidence was collected and the verdict must be issued. Not only Berkut and militia commanders must be responsible, but also those who ordered the issuance of weapons," the Head of State stressed.

The President added that the punishment of judges who had issued illegal verdicts against AutoMaidan activists was under his personal control.

"Nobody will avoid responsibility. It is not revenge. Security officials should never ever use weapons against Ukrainian people. Ukraine must remain a democratic state forever," the Head of State said.
