MOSCOW, April 21. /TASS/. Russia expects "the international constructive pressure" with regard to Kiev to hold a genuine investigation of the events on Maidan, Russian Foreign Ministry’s Commissioner for Human Rights, Democracy and the Rule of Law Konstantin Dolgov told the Life News TV channel on Tuesday.


"Let’s see what kind of assessment will be heard from the European capitals," he said. "Anyway, it’s becoming more and more evident that it’s increasingly more difficult to hush up the truth and the pressure will be growing."

"It’s important not only to maintain the international constructive pressure, but also to step it up when it comes to urging Kiev to hold genuine, not phoney investigations and to punish those guilty," the diplomat said. Dolgov noted that impunity was not conducive to national reconciliation.

According to Polish lawmaker in the European Parliament Janusz Korwin-Mikke, the snipers who fired in Kiev during the tragic events on Maidan last February had been trained in Poland, local media report.

"Maidan was our job. I sat in the European Parliament next to Estonian Foreign Minister Urmas Paet. He acknowledged in a conversation with the then EU foreign policy chief Catherine Ashton that our people were firing on Maidan rather than the people of Russian President Vladimir Putin or former Ukrainian leader [Viktor] Yanukovich," the Polish politician said. He added that the terrorists shot dead 40 protesters and 20 police officers on Maidan to provoke unrest.
