Speaking on ‘The Right to Rule" talk show aired by 1 +1 TV Channel  on June  2, Ukraine’s Prosecutor General Yuriy Lutsenko responded to Sergey Aksyonov’s ‘invitation’ to come to Crimea for questioning by saying he would come there with the Ukrainian army.

“Rest assured I will come to Crimea. And not alone but with the Ukrainian army. And the Ukrainian flag will be flying over Simferopol. I will be sure to come and question all the ‘goblins’ (Aksyonov), ‘nyashas’ (Poklonskaya) and other characters,” he said.

According to Lutsenko, all these individuals will be convicted in absentia in Ukraine.

“For the time being, all of them will be convicted in absentia. Hopefully, not for long,” said Lutsenko.

It was reported earlier that Ukraine’s General Prosecutor's Office issued summons to 727 persons, including 327 judges, 299 prosecutors, 134 MPs of the Crimean Parliament and Sevastopol City Council, as well as 11 representatives of the self-proclaimed ‘Crimean authorities’, who are charged with committing crimes against the state under Article 11 (high treason) and Article 110 (encroachment on Ukraine’s territorial integrity and inviolability).
