“Our proposal to hold a hearing via videoconference is based solely
on the provisions of the current legislation. My colleagues and I talked
about this many times. The talks that participation in a hearing via
videoconference is illegal and that allegedly only one separate
procedural action can occur through videoconference are nothing but an
attempt to interpret the provisions of the law as they want,” she said.

She said that the possibility of holding a videoconference was
envisaged in Article 85-3 of the Criminal Procedure Code of Ukraine.

“This provision foresees the defendant’s possible participation in
the proceedings via videoconference. This provision does not restrict
the work of a lawyer who can be present in the courtroom and next to his
client. My colleagues and I have repeatedly noted that the use of this
provision is possible only with the consent of the defendant. Such a
process is impossible without her consent,” the prosecutor said.
