Representatives of the non-governmental organization Heavenly Hundred Family of Heroes call on Viktor Trepak to resume oversight by Maidan’s affairs department.
This is indicated in the organization’s appeal to President Vladimir Zelensky, posted on its Facebook page.
“We demand that Trepak’s business department return guardianship to the department and provide the opportunity to continue working under last month’s regime,” the statement said.
The families of Heroes of Heavenly Hundreds believe that it is with the help of Trepak that there have recently been positive changes in the “affairs of the Maidan”. In particular, in the past month, two suspects in the murder of Yuri Verbitsky have been arrested and taken into police custody, an employee of Omega has been arrested. He was suspected of killing Oleg Ushnevich and injuring another man from Maydan, and he was also suspected of judges and investigators who had persecuted and detained Maydan’s men in January-February 2014.

At the same time, activists are demanding that the new deputy attorney general Andrei Lyubovich be removed from “Maidan’s affairs” because, according to them, “he was involved in the persecution of militants during Maidan 2013-2014”. The organization claims that Lyubovich was the head of the investigative department of the Dnipropetrovsk region prosecutor’s office during the Euromaidan, and that local prosecutors “participated in the arrests, arrests and prosecutions of local Maidan activists”.
In a public organization, they think that the prosecutor general Irina Venediktova is changing the vector of the investigation into “Maidan”, and recall that as head of the State Security Bureau, she appointed Alexander Babikov, who worked in a law firm representing the interests of ex-President Yanukovych.
Activists note that if their demands are not met, they will demand the resignation of Irina Venediktova from the post of attorney general.
As previously reported by Ukrinform, Deputy Prosecutor General Viktor Trepak wrote a report on the dismissal after Prosecutor General Irina Venediktova changed the duties of his deputies, preventing him from supervising the activities of the departments responsible for procedural management in the “Maidan” cases and in cases that are being investigated by SBU investigators. .
According to Trepak, such a redistribution of powers is a means of influencing him and interfering in the exercise of his powers as a prosecutor.
At the same time, the Attorney General Irina Venediktova said that Trepak had not been withdrawn from the investigation and that he “was staying with the important cases he had carried out”.
