The Prosecutor General's Office of Ukraine filed a new motion to the court on the choosing of the restrictive measure for Ivan Bubenchyk, the Euromaidan activist suspected in the murder of two law enforces and attempt on the life of another during Revolution of Dignity in 2014. Ihor Korzhukh, the advocate claimed this as Hromadske reported.
According to the defense, the motion was recently filed by the prosecutors and the defense has not familiarized with it yet.

Also, Korzhukh reported that the consideration of the motion will take place on April 24, at 9 am in Pechersk court.
He also claimed that no investigative actions take place with his client.
Ivan Bubenchyk was detained on April 3 in the suspicion of the murder of two 'Berkut' officers during the Revolution of Dignity. As Bubenchyk reported he was detained in Lviv and then taken to Kyiv.
On April 5, the prosecutor's office removed the suspicion from Bubenchyk and ismissed the petition to choose the pre-trial restriction measure. Also, he can be exempted from the criminal liability due to the amnesty law for the partakers of the Dignity Revolution. The same day, the Prosecutor General's Office served him with new charges.
The detainee had previously claimed that he used a machinegun to fire at the law enforcers at Maidan Nezalezhnosti Square in Kyiv on February 20, 2014. Bubenchyk said he killed two of the fighters during the violent street clashes. Later, he was detained, when Prosecutor General's Office announced that several persons are suspects in the case of the murders of Berkut fighters during the Euromaidan events in Kyiv. 

February 20, 2014, earmarks the climax of the street violence during the Revolution of Dignity in Ukraine. That day, government-hired shooters gunned down dozens of unarmed civilians; about a dozen of law enforcers deceased as well. Prosecutor General's Office continues to look into the crimes related to the Euromaidan movement and the Revolution of Dignity, including these murders.
