Desniansky District Court of Kyiv on December 20 will continue considering a criminal case against two police officers from Shevchenkivsky District Police Office accused of abuse of office and dereliction of duty that caused the death of Kyiv student Ihor Indylo. At the court's meeting on Wednesday, one of the defendants Serhiy Kovalenko has submitted a petition for postponing the hearing due to the fact that he terminated a contract with his lawyer, and the new one has not been concluded yet. The court granted this request and postponed the hearing until December 20.

The newspaper believes in a robust public debate, but the discussion must be constructive and intelligent. For the time being, the Kyiv Post will allow comments on its moderated Facebook group https://www.facebook.com/groups/kyivpost/. The newspaper will consider hosting online comments again when circumstances allow. Thank you from the Kyiv Post.
