Sviatoshyn district court of Kyiv decided to put OUN battalion leader Mykola Kohanivsky under house arrest until December 20, according to our reporter.

The prosecutor asked for a 60-day arrest, but the judge ruled that the evidence the prosecution gave isn’t sufficient for that.

The defence is going to appeal the decision, as they expected a house arrest at night hours, or a bail. There are still some supporters of Kohanivsky near the court.  

As it was reported earlier, law enforcement officers detained the commander of the OUN volunteer battalion Mykola Kohanivsky last Friday, as he started shooting in Kyiv. Kohanivsky said that the shooting he started occurred because in the area he was at, a certain group of people forces the tenants to leave their dwelling, as he told 112.

In the evening of October 23, a group of activists barricaded themselves in the courtroom of Svyatoshynsky District Court of Kyiv where the question of electing a preventive measure was being considered. The police later on detained 30 of the protesters.
