Zaporizhya Appeal Court left the suspect, co-organizer in the murder of ex-volunteer of Ukraine’s army Vitaly Oleshko known as “Sarmat” under arrest until January 20. First Deputy of the Head of the National Police of Ukraine Viacheslav Abroskin reported that on Facebook.
“His criminal ties did not help him. Neither did the “gratitude for good work” with his case, at which the defense pointed out. The trust in victory is growing. I thank the judges for the integrity and decent work,” Abroskin said.
On December 16, the officers of criminal police detained a Dnipro resident at Kharkiv international airport; he is suspected of being an accomplice to the murder of former volunteer Vitaliy Oleshko (Sarmat).
As we reported earlier, two gunshot wounds took the life of Vitaliy Oleshko, the former volunteer fighter of Donbas battalion and the active participant in Donbas conflict. The gunfire attack occurred in the southeastern city of Berdyansk.
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.
