“The suspect is on the international wanted list. He is a former
employee of one of the special units of Kharkiv police,”
Interfax-Ukraine learned at the Interior Ministry.
Previously, the head of the main investigation department at the
Interior Ministry, Vasyl Farynnyk told Kharkiv-based Status Quo News
Agency that the principal suspect in the journalist’s murder was Andriy
Kozar, a former employee of the law enforcement agencies. However, it
was unlikely that he committed the murder on his own.
Farynnyk also reported that Kozar was suspected of having committed two more crimes.
