"Buzyna's murder has been solved," he wrote.
Avakov reminded that former editor-in-chief of Segodnia newspaper was shot dead on April 16. The criminals who did it were detained on Thursday, Avakov informed.
According to him, criminal investigators of the Interior Ministry have been solving the murder for two months. They got the facts straight and received direct evidence of who participated in the crime, including those who committed it.
The two suspects were arrested in Kyiv on Thursday morning. They are Andrii Medvedko, born Sept. 27, 1989, and Denys Polishchuk, born June 14, 1990. The investigation has found how, when and who sold these two persons a car used for spying upon Buzyna and for fleeing from the crime scene after the murder.
Subsequently, the car was identified and corpus delicti seized from it, Avakov informed. Upon forensic expertise, direct evidence of these persons' implication in the crime have been received.
Direct evidence include DNA analysis of clothes abandoned by the criminals at the site and of traces left in the car, direct identification by witnesses, and materials from silent surveillance conducted by criminal investigators, Avakov wrote. These evidence became grounds for the arrest of the two people in question, which was conducted Thursday morning, the Interior Minister concluded.
