“The National Police detained in Valencia an escapee who is put on the wanted list in Ukraine for the murder of two police officers during the rally,” the message said.
It is noted that the events took place in Kyiv in 2013, when the detainee armed with a rifle and 60 bullets, opened fire at officers. He resorted to the last-ditch measures of safety. He constantly changed address to avoid the authorities and spent the last weeks in the hut in the countryside.
The police investigation has started in April 2020 when the Spanish attaché in Ukraine informed that the escapee can stay in Puçol, Valencia. Consequently, the location of the suspect was detected and he was arrested.
“Dmytro Lypoviy detained; a citizen of Kharkiv who on February 19, 2014, passed his Saiga semi-automatic rifle and 60 bullets to a group of Maidan protesters – Zynoviy Parasyuk and Ivan Bubenchyk who opened fire at Berkut and internal military forces,” journalist Yuriy Butusov reported on Facebook.
He also noted that ‘grounds for extradition of Lypoviy to Ukraine are falsified’.
As we reported, the Ukrainian Parliament passed decree No.2739 timed to the seventh anniversary of the beginning of the Euromaidan movement. 295 MPs upheld the document.
