Ukrainian opposition activist Bulatov to be treated in Lithuania
Kyiv's Automaidan activist Dmitry Bulatov will continue his treatment at a Lithuanian medical institution, Ukrainian people's deputy Petro Poroshenko said on Channel 5 on Sunday.
The injured Bulatov was brought to Vilnius in the early hours of Monday, according to the BNS. He was taken to a hospital in an ambulance vehicle.
It was reported that Bulatov had not been in contact since January 23. On the same day his wife reported, through a lawyer, her husband's disappearance to the police.
Bulatov was found on January 30. He was held captive and severely beaten.
Several Automaidan opposition activists, including Bulatov, were put on the wanted list on January 24 in connection with mass disturbances, the Ukrainian Interior Ministry said on January 31. Given Bulatov's health condition, remand was replaced by house arrest.
On February 2 the Shevchenkivsky District Court in Kyiv, at the request of the Prosecutor General's Office, gave opposition activist Bulatov permission to go abroad.
No decision has been taken to close criminal proceedings against the activist, the Ukrainian court said.
"The decision by the Shevchenkivsky District Court concerned the restraining measure with respect to Bulatov, and not the essence of the said criminal proceedings," the Ukrainian Interior Ministry told Interfax-Ukraine.
