Ukrainian law enforcement officers detained a suspect in the murder of a lawyer Iryna Nozdrovska. This on January 8, told the Department of Communications director of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Ukraine Artem Shevchenko to TV channel 112 Ukraine.
Earlier Deputy head of the National Police of Ukraine Vyacheslav Abroskin said that the investigation is forging ahead without the support of local community.
“This brutal crime must be solved, and the person who committed it must face the court. Now without any support of the society, inhabitants of Demydove, only due to the operative and search activities of the police, the investigation is forging ahead. Every day we hear out the results and correct the ways of work,” he said.
As it was reported earlier relatives of Iryna Nozdrovska reported her disappearance on December 29th. She disappeared on the way from Kyiv in Vyshgorodska area. She investigated the death of her sister, who in September 2015 died in a car accident caused by Dmytro Rossoshansky, the nephew of a district judge, who was in a state of drug intoxication at the time of the accident.
Two years after the accident, Iryna was able to obtain punishment for Rossoshansky. At the end of May 2017 the court sentenced him to 7 years in prison, but on December 27 he almost escaped from custody: in the Court of Appeal of the Kyiv region, the lawyer tried to appeal the verdict and bring his client under amnesty, using the violations committed by the court of the first instance. As Irina's relatives said, she constantly received threats from Rossoshansky.
