The wounded security guard from the Karavan shopping mall, Pavlo Fedenkov, has regained consciousness, and doctors think that his life is not in danger any more, according to the Segodnya daily newspaper.

"The employees of the hospital refused to disclose information about the wounded man, as their managers promised to fire any employees releasing any information. However, it has been reported that Pavlo [Fedenkov] has regained consciousness, but he is still unable to speak as he was wounded in the neck," reads the article.

Four officers of the Berkut special police detachment wearing body armor guard the intensive care department every day.

As reported, a robber shot dead three employees of a private security firm and seriously wounded another one in the Karavan shopping mall on Luhova Street in Kyiv on September 26. One of the security guards saw a visitor stealing a USB flash drive from a glass case. The guard asked the man to go to the back room, where other guards were waiting. In the room the man pulled out a gun and started shooting, killing three security guards on the spot and seriously wounding a fourth. The attacker then fled the scene.

The Obolon District Police Office has opened a criminal case on the incident. The criminal was put on wanted lists in Russia and Belarus.
