On April 4, 2014, Vasyl Serhiienko, an active participant of the Revolution of Dignity and a hero of Ukraine, was beaten and kidnapped from his home courtyard in Korsun Shevchenkivskyi. On the next day his body was found 15 kilometers from the town, in Vyhraievskyi forest, with handcuffs and signs of tortures.

May 16, Cherkasy region police and prosecutors detained in Kyiv a person suspected of organizing a high-profile murder of Serhiienko. The detained person was Melnyk V.A., who worked as a security guard of a people's deputy in 2014, and has been hiding and put on the wanted list after the assassins were detained.

Censor.NET believes the suspect is a former chief of security for MP Hennadii Bobov. Earlier, Serhiienko's colleagues said Bobov was linked to the crime.
