Four former Berkut riot police officers charged with murder, torture and assault fled to Russia on April 9–11, after courts in Kyiv ruled that they could be released from custody.

The incident has triggered a public outcry, with critics arguing that the officers’ flight is another classic example of Ukraine’s politicized and corrupt judiciary.

They claim the cases were sabotaged by the Interior Ministry led by Arsen Avakov, accusing the nation’s biggest law enforcement agency of protecting former Berkut officers accused of crimes committed during Ukraine’s 100-day EuroMaidan Revolution that drove President Viktor Yanukovych from power on Feb. 22, 2014.
