Police currently have five suspects in custody, three of
whom are believed to have been directly involved in the Dec. 25 beating of
Chornovol.

Mykola Chynchyn, the head of the interior ministry’s
investigation department, said that
the Klitschko brothers
were closely associated with the same organized crime
syndicate of which one of the suspects, Oleksandr Kotenko, had allegedly been a
member.

In a Dec. 27 statement, he said that Kotenko was a member of
the Borys Savlokhov gang, which was part of the Viktor Rybalko organized crime
group. The Klitschko brothers allegedly were closely involved in Rybalko’s
organization, according to Chynchyn. Rybalko was killed in 2005.
