State Bureau of Investigations served ex-MP Tetyana Chornovol the notification of suspicion in the intentional homicide; it took place during the arson of a building during the street protests in Kyiv in 2014. Back then, the building hosted the HQ of the Party of Regions (currently disbanded, - 112 International).

Currently, the investigation is over, and the case is being handed over to the court. Chornovol herself said so, leaving the building of the State Bureau of Investigations, which initiated the case.

The former MP slammed the law enforcers, stating that the investigation team spent six months and still failed to find any facts pointing out to her involvement in the murder.

Previously, the court chose round-the-clock house arrest as pre-trial restriction measure in Chornovol's case. However, later the judges changed the restriction measure to night-time arrest. Eventually, the court decided to weaken this restriction, changing it to personal commitment of the defendant.

The former MP refuses to testify in this case, calling it politically motivated.
