The Office of Prosecutor General has notified former "defense minister" of self-styled Donetsk People's Republic of suspicion in absentia. The press service of the authority reported that on Tuesday.

Most likely, the suspect is Igor Girkin (Strelkov).

Girkin is now on the wanted list; the court provided permission to apprehend him, so as to bring him to justice.

The investigation found out that in April 2014, Igor Girkin was involved in capturing and tortures of Ukrainian patriots in the Donetsk region. He is suspected of applying physical force, too. The captured citizens were brought to a building in the-then occupied Slovyansk, then tortured, beaten up, cut with knives, and suffered other physical and moral injuries for their pro-Ukrainian position. At least three of these people were killed in detention.
