Both victims, according
to Serhiy Redko
, first deputy of the Interior Ministry’s criminal investigation
department, had the same cause of death: “combined injuries due to torture and
death by drowning while unconscious.”

Rybak and an unidentified
body were found on April 19 near the town of Raihorodok in the Torets River, a
tributary of Siversky Donets River in Slovyansk District.

“The opposition Horlivka
deputy who fought the separatists, and who was kidnapped in Horlivka…was found
dead in Siversky Donets (River) near Slovyansk with a backpack filled with sand
around his back and ripped stomach…Not Fascists, not separatists… (but) it was scoundrels
and carrions (who killed him)… who should be obliterated by any means
together with their imperial backers…Heroes never die,” wrote Batkivshchyna
lawmaker Oleksandr Bryhynets on his Facebook page.
