Right Sector spox Artem Skoropadsky in his comment to Hromadske Radio confirmed that representatives of the organization have blocked exits from a pre-trial detention facility in Kyiv to prevent ex-Berkut officers, suspects in a case of Maidan shootings, from being brought to a court hearing.

He suggested that the court might release the suspects immediately after the interrogation.

However, he could not explain grounds for this assumption.

It is based on the previous history of the past three years, when none of the killers of Euromaidan protesters was punished," said Skoropadsky.

The judges are considering to postpone the hearing to Nov 28 or Dec 2.
