Organizer of the murder of Russian journalist Arkadiy Babchenko Borys Herman pointed at the customer within the cooperation with the prosecution. Yury Lutsenko, the Prosecutor General claimed this as Tsenzor.NET reported.
"The deal with the prosecution is confirmed by the court and comes into force in a month as it was concluded. At this moment, its materials will be disclosed. So, we will know the name of the customer. I do not see any point to hide it," Lutsenko said.
According to him, Herman made a deal with the prosecution. Under oath he called the customer who ordered him to finance and organize the terrorist act in the form of murder of Russian journalist Arkadiy Babchenko.
"We, certainly, put the customer on the wanted list; he is in Russia. With the help of our foreign partners we will do everything possible to detain him."
The prosecution also works out other possible members of the criminal group.
Arkadiy Babchenko is the Russian journalist, war-time correspondent and the writer. He served with the Russian regular army, surviving the combat action in both Chechen wars (the 1990s and 2000). Later, he prepared a number of reports during the armed conflict in South Ossetia in 2008. Since 2012, the Russian government has been prosecuting him for critical reports against the incumbent authority.
As it was reported earlier, Shevchenkivsky district court in Kyiv arrested Borys Herman, the suspect in the organization of the attempt on the life of Arkadiy Babchenko, the Russian opposition reporter who lives in Kyiv.
Herman insists he never ordered or prepared the murder; according to him, he was involved in the secret operation of Ukraine's special services, which was supposed to reveal the supply channels of Russian saboteurs and influence agents in Ukraine.
