"Exiled former President Viktor Yanukovych has told a Ukrainian court via video link that he never ordered police to fire on protesters during Euromaidan demonstrations that roiled the country nearly three years ago. The statements -- from Russia -- mark the 66-year-old Yanukovych's first testimony to a Ukrainian court over the deaths, which helped fuel the unrest that ousted his pro-Moscow administration in February 2014. It came as Ukrainian prosecutors used a pause in the proceedings in Kyiv on November 28 to announce that they have launched formal treason charges against Yanukovych." (11/27/16)
