Pechersk city court in Kyiv detained Yevhen Brodsky, the suspect in the murder of Vitaliy Oleshko, the Ukrainian army's ex-volunteer known under the alias of 'Sarmat' (see the photo above). Hromadske.org reported that on Tuesday evening.
Thus, the jury upheld the prosecution's appeal. Brodsky will remain in custody for two months.
This is already sixth suspect in the murder of Oleshko. Currently, four suspects and the supposed organizer of the crime are at the remand centre.
On December 16, Brodsky was detained at Kharkiv airport as a suspect in the homicide.
Vitaliy Oleshko was killed with the gunshot in Berdyansk in summer this year. He was known as the social activist who persistently fought corruption.
Oleshko was shot dead in the yard of a local hotel, in front of his wife. Andriy Madzharov, who later uploaded a video on his social network account confirmed that the man sustained two wounds to his back; the killer used a shotgun.
The shooter who killed Vitaliy 'Sarmat' Oleshko is the former fighter of Tornado volunteer battalion. The convict, formerly the sniper of the unit, might face the life imprisonment for this particular crime.
