She got almost 40 percent of her body burned; four months after the attack, in November 2018, the 34-year-old anti-corruption activist died at a hospital because of multiple organ failure and blood clot detachment - the aftermaths of the attack.
Vladyslav Manger, the chairman of Kherson regional council was served with charge papers. The Prosecutor General's Office now considers him a suspect in the organization of the murder. Manger said he will cooperate with the investigation.
