The Prosecutor General's Office states that in 2014, the Ministry of Interior Affairs of Ukraine procured riot control weapons in Russia to disperse activists of Euromaidan on the basis of respective order of former head of the public security department of the ministry Oleksii Krykun.

This is said in a ruling of the Pecherskyi District Court of Kyiv dated February 14, Ukrainian News Agency reports.

According to the report, the PGO found out that in January-February 2014, Russia provided the Ministry of Interior Affairs of Ukraine with riot control weapons.

The weapons were delivered in absence of any requests for assistance envisioned under the agreement on cooperation between the Ministry of Interior Affairs of Ukraine and the Ministry of Interior Affairs of the Russian Federation as well as in absence of any grounds for paying UAH 1.2 million for customs clearance of the riot control weapons supplied from Russia.

The court allowed to withdraw the order on behalf of Krykun on procurement of the riot control weapons along with approval letter of deputy interior affairs minister Viktor Ratushniak, approval letter of deputy head of the resource provision department under the material supply department of the Ministry of Interior Affairs Stanyslav Krysin.

As Ukrainian News Agency earlier reported, in November 2014, the PGO completed investigation into procurement of prohibited weapons for dispersal of Euromaidan activists by former interior affairs minister Vitalii Zakharchenko and his deputy Serhii Lekar.
