That is what Dergey Gorbatyuk, Chief of the Special Investigations Department of Ukraine’s Prosecutor Office, said in an interview aired by the ICTV channel.

“Our intelligence reports suggest that he is now Simferopol,” said Gorbatyuk.

According to Gorbatyuk, the majority of former Berkut policemen, who are suspected of killing protesters in 2014, are now hiding in Russia and occupied Crimea.

It was reported earlier by QHA that Ukraine’s Prosecutor Office is ceasing investigation into the killing of protesters during the Revolution of Dignity.
