 Lawyer Olentsevych, attacker of Turchynov's wife, linked to 'DPR' leadership, - Interior Minister

Volodymyr Olentsevych, the lawyer from Donetsk who last week attacked Anna Turchynova, wife of NSDC Secretary Oleksandr Turchynov, is linked to the leadership of the "Donetsk People's Republic" terrorist organization.

As reported by Censor.NET, this was announced by Interior Minister Arsen Avakov in an interview to Ukrinform.

"Most probably, he was just a fanatic directed at certain way. When we looked through his phone talks, he turned out related to many 'ministers' of the so-called 'DPR'," the official said.

"He is a seemingly intelligent person, a citizen of Ukraine, a lawyer, who was citing Goethe when being interrogated, but at the same time was promising everyone to be dead soon. I am not sure whether he wanted to injure or kill Anna Turchynova: the investigation is underway," the head of the Interior Ministry added.

"The question is not who's guilty, but that the hybrid war includes elements like this as well," Avakov stressed.
