There are no grounds to stop a special pre-trial investigation against former Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych, Ukrainian Prosecutor General Yuriy Lutsenko's press secretary Larysa Sargan wrote on Facebook.

"We emphasize once again: there is only one reason for stopping a special pre-trial investigation – that's if suspect Yanukovych voluntarily appears before a pre-trial investigation body in the territory of Ukraine. There are no other grounds to stop a special pre-trial investigation," she said.

Sargan also noted that the case against former president of Ukraine would be submitted to the court in the near future.

As reported, Yanukovych's lawyer Vitaliy Serdiuk earlier said that the investigation in absentia with respect to his client had been terminated, claiming that the "grounds" for its continuation ceased to exist
