The National Police of Ukraine confirmed crime boss 'Netrik' (Netrebko) being on the international wanted list. 'Netrik' is the main suspect in organization of the beating of journalist and People's Front MP Tetiana Chornovol in December 2013.

As reported by Censor.NET citing Ukrainski Novyny, this was announced by head of the criminal investigation department (CID) of the National Police Volodymyr Ostapenko.

He said that Dniprodzerzhynsk crime boss 'Netrik' had found people among his team to commit the crime against Tetiana Chornovol. In particular, he named Zinchenko, Zaliubovskyi, and Kornilov as participants.

All of them, except Zaluibovsky, have been put on the international wanted list.

"Zinchenko is in Russia. He has been detained, extradition materials sent, but Russia refused to extradite and he had been released. The rest of them are outside of Ukraine as well," Ostapenko said.

Two of the suspects, Kotenko and Zaluibovsky, have been sentenced by court, he added.
