The identities of 46 killers of Heaven’s Hundred heroes have been established. On Saturday, May 17, more than 70 families of killed Euromaidan protesters had demanded a meeting with the authorities and a report from the law enforcement agencies on the results of the investigation, as reported by TSN.

On May 20, the police and prosecutors reported at a closed meeting to the relatives of the deceased that seven culprits have been arrested and the rest are wanted. In most cases, they are former Berkut officers. Many of them are hiding in the Crimea and in Eastern Ukraine. Deputy Prime Minister Vitaliy Yarema said that by the end of the week families will receive the state financial assistance that was promised three months ago and apologized for the lack of communication. He vowed to hold such meetings on a regular basis; the next will be held in a month. Relatives of those killed on Maidan say that they do not need money or benefits. It is important for them to know who killed protesters on Maidan and who gave the orders.
