Ukrainian Prosecutor-General Vitaliy Yarema says at least 21 members of the Ukrainian special forces participated in the deadly shooting of unarmed Euromaidan protesters in Kyiv between February 18-20.
He also said that his office had already identified at least three of the special forces involved in the shooting of peaceful protesters. He said the issue of identification was complicated by the fact that some of the troops were wearing masks, and that many of the weapons involved had since disappeared.
Approximately 75 people were killed on February 18-20, most of them unarmed protesters.
Yarema also said his office intends to restore investigation into several unlawfully dropped cases, including the 2000 murder of investigative journalist Heorhiy Gongadze.
