Ukrainian Court Finds Ex-president Guilty of Treason

MINSK, Ukraine (AP) — A court in the Ukrainian capital Kiev has found former President Viktor Yanukovych guilty of treason.

Yanukovych fled Ukraine in 2014 as tensions in Kiev flared up following a deadly police crackdown on protesters calling for the president to follow through with an association agreement with the European Union. Yanukovych, who eventually surfaced in Russia and was tried in absentia, faced charges of treason, along with complicity in a war against Ukraine and premeditated actions to alter Ukraine's borders.

The Kiev court on Thursday declared Yanukovych guilty of treason, and it will rule later on the other charges.
