Opera singer Vasyl Slipak was killed deliberately before the contact group meeting in Minsk. This was stated on the TV channel "112 Ukraine" by the former representative of Ukraine in the trilateral contact group Roman Bezsmertnyi.
"It's impossible to predict today the Kremlin's behaviour using logic of piece, because they are guided by the logic of war. Why opera singer was killed in the morning before sides in Minsk sit to the negotiating table? It is clear that sniper was hunting him, that it was done deliberately. It's a challenge. They knew who was in front of them, what kind of person, etc.", - said Bezsmertnyi.
Let us remind, on 29th of June opera singer Vasyl Slipak was killed by sniper shot in Donetsk region.
