Kiev officials have not been able to organize an independent and fair
investigation of the crimes committed during the events on Maidan
Square. The country’s authorities systematically hinder the inquiry
process, Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung wrote.
Kiev officials are not interested in disclosing the truth about
the shootings during the events on Maidan Square, journalist of the

Inquiry Into Maidan Violence Law-enforcement authorities in Kiev
have still not revealed who sent snipers to shoot at the peaceful
protesters, the journalist said.
According to Ann Dorit Boy, nobody would believe that the mentality
of the Ukrainian government can change “overnight”. To organize an
independent and fair investigation is difficult for many reasons, but
at least worth a try. However, nothing has been done to launch a fair
inquiry into the case. Instead, the Ministry of Interior, Security
Service and the Prosecutor General of Ukraine have systematically
impeded the investigation.
The journalist wrote that even the heavy fighting in Donbass does not
justify the betrayal of European values to which the new government
expressed its commitment. “The investigation of crimes committed
on the Maidan, in the House of Trade Unions in Odessa, Donbass and
anywhere in the country as well as [corresponding] punishment are
indispensable for the recovery of Ukrainian society,” she said.
