Detained suspect in the murder of a lawyer and human rights activist Iryna Nozdrovska confessed details of the crime. This was stated on the TV channel 112 Ukraine by Verkhovna Rada deputy, member of the collegium of the Ministry of Internal Affairs Anton Herashchenko.
"At the moment, this person is detained, he confessed to details of the crime, but now the police do not consider it right to disclose his identity because this can influence the results of the investigation in the future," he said.
At the same time, Herashchenko stressed that the motive of Nozdrovska murder was revenge.
The People's Deputy neither confirm nor denied the information disseminated in the media that the suspect is a relative of the nephew of district judge Dmytro Rossoshansky, who killed Nozdrovska's sister in a road accident, but explained that the human rights activist demanded punishment for her sister's murderer and paid for it.
The police announced detainee suspected in the crime. This was published by Prosecutor General Yuri Lutsenko on his Facebook page.
"The investigator of the Vyshgorod police department has just announced a murder suspect in the murder of Iryna Nozdrovska," he wrote.
Earlier, INSIDER, citing sources in law enforcement agencies, said that the suspect in the murder of human rights activist, who was recently detained by the police, turned out to be Yury Rossoshansky, born in 1954. The man is the father of Dmytro Rossoshansky - a driver who, in September 2015, killed Nozdrovska sister in a car accident - Svitlana Sapatynska.
