MOSCOW (Sputnik) – A Moscow court is presently considering a lawsuit of former Ukrainian lawmaker Volodymyr Oliynyk, asking to recognize the events that took place in Ukraine in 2014 as a coup.
"Separate representatives of Georgia organized snipers in Maidan. There were also snipers from the Baltic states. We caught them with such weapons," Klyuyev said in court.
In February 2014, violent clashes with law enforcement officials broke out in the square, claiming the lives of some 100 civilians. The current Ukrainian authorities blame former Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych and the Berkut special forces for the deaths on Maidan.
