Portrait Vitalii Zakharchenko

Zakharchenko was ousted from the office at the same time as Viktor Yanukovych, both facing charges of using violence against protesters in the February 2014 Euromaidan riots, which led to several deaths of protestors. He was last seen in Russia in April 2014 during a joint press conference with Viktor Yanukovych and former prosecutor general Viktor Pshonka. 1
