SBI received court permission for an investigation into suspicion of treason against Mykola Azarov

The State Bureau of Investigation has received court permission to conduct a special pre-trial investigation into former Prime Minister of Ukraine Mykola Azarov. The relevant decision was made by one of the courts of Kyiv.

Mykola Azarov is suspected of treason by a group of people.

It was established that when signing the Agreement between Ukraine and Russia on April 21, 2010 on the stay of the Russian Black Sea Fleet in Ukraine, the former prime minister acted in the interests of Russia to the detriment of sovereignty, territorial integrity and inviolability, defense, state and economic security of Ukraine.

The content and terms of this agreement were imposed in Moscow by Russian President Dmitry Medvedev on the eve of its signing on April 21, 2010.

Fully understanding the consequences of signing this Agreement for Ukraine, the former Prime Minister created conditions for prolonging the stay of the Russian Black Sea Fleet in Ukraine for 25 years, which contributed to the increase (instead of withdrawal) of military equipment and personnel of the aggressor state in Ukraine, which were used during the occupation of the Autonomous Republic of Crimea and the city of Sevastopol in 2014.

Contrary to Part 3 of Art. 4 of the Law of Ukraine “On International Agreements of Ukraine” the draft Agreement before signing did not even pass the legal examination.

Putin and Azarov

SBI investigators received original documents that testify to the purposeful actions of senior officials of Ukraine to the detriment of our state’s sovereignty and territorial integrity on the instructions of the top leadership of the Russian Federation.

A group of people carried out these acts with the prior consent of the former Prime Minister of Ukraine Mykola Azarov and the then President of Ukraine, Viktor Yanukovych. Both are wanted in this criminal case.

The Office of the Attorney General provides procedural guidance.
