Ukrainian investigation looking into Savchenko's, Medvedchuk's contacts

KYIV. Aug 2 (Interfax) - The team investigating the Savchenko-Ruban case does not have grounds to arraign the leader of the public movement Ukrainian Choice - The Right of the People, Viktor Medvedchuk, whose current procedural status in the case is witness, Ukrainian Prosecutor General Yuriy Lutsenko said.

"For the time being, the investigation has no evidence sufficient for attributing any procedural status other than witness to Medvedchuk," Lutsenko said at a briefing conference on Wednesday.

The investigation is thoroughly studying Ukrainian MP Nadiya Savchenko's connections, as well as ties between people linked to Savchenko and Medvedchuk and any non-governmental organizations that were close to Medvedchuk in the 1990s, he said.

"But currently, the investigation does not have enough evidence which I could use in the public dimension. For the time being, he has no status in this case. We are studying his possible role in any anti-Ukrainian activities, not only as part of this case," Lutsenko said.
