Russian Prosecutor General’s office said yesterday that the fugitive Viktor Yanukovych did not send to Russian President Vladimir Putin a letter with a request to send troops to Ukraine. This was announced by the head of GPU, Yury Lutsenko.
This statement denies the words of the master of the Kremlin, victim of the Russian permanent representative to the UN Vitaly Churkin and the fugitive Ukrainian ex-President Viktor Yanukovych.
Recall that Churkin, who died suddenly in February of 2017, earlier justified the invasion of Russian troops in Ukraine by the letter from Yanukovych, supposedly demonstrating a copy of it to the UN. Social media users wondered whether his demise with the position of the Prosecutor General of the Russian Federation.
