Ukrainian tycoon Petro Dyminskyi, allegedly involved in a fatal car accident in the Lviv region, did not appear for an interview on Wednesday, with the next interview being scheduled for Friday.

Censor.NET reports citing Adviser to Interior Minister and Verkhovna Rada MP Anton Herashchenko as saying in a statement to Interfax-Ukraine.

"He didn't appear. On Monday, he was formally summoned to appear on Wednesday at 10 a.m. and on Friday. If he fails to come on Friday, the investigation will seek to have him brought by force," wrote Herashchenko, adding that Dyminskyi comes as a witness in the case.

He said that the lawyers of the businessman did not contact the investigator about the impossibility of Dyminskyi to appear for questioning. According to the MP, no one was informed about the departure of the oligarch to Geneva.

Herashchenko reminded the investigation had established that the man who said he was behind the wheel at the time of the accident, in fact, wasn't.

"There are several versions: it could be Dyminskyi or maybe someone from his inner circle, for whose sake they resorted to falsifying the results and bringing in a straw person," he explained.

On Aug. 18, a Mercedes-Benz S65 collided with an Opel Astra on the Lviv-Krakovets highway near the village of Yamelnia in the Yavoriv district of the Lviv region. Natalia Tril, the 31-year-old driver of the Opel and a resident of one of the villages of the Yavoriv district, died on spot. The police initially said the Mercedes was driven by a 43-year-old Lviv resident.

Stepan Matsevko, a relative of the deceased who reported the tragedy, claims that Dyminskyi himself was behind the wheel of the Mercedes that was accompanied by a Lexus SUV. After the crash, Dyminskyi got into the Lexus and disappeared from the scene, his bodyguard claiming he was driving the car at the moment of the accident.
