The killers have not been identified as of the time of the report.
A criminal case was opened under Article 115 of the Criminal Code of Ukraine (premeditated murder). Measures are being taken to establish the circumstances of the incident and identify the individuals involved in committing this crime. According to Shchyt i Mech website, the man was shot from a Kalashnikov assault rifle.
Vasylkiv City Council Member Mykola Nedilko wrote on Facebook: "The body of the CEO of the Ukrainian branch of Germany-based paint producer Caparol was found in the village of Krushynka in Vasylkiv district of the Kyiv region."
The National Police received the murder report at about noon. It is noted that a passerby found the body on the road near a suburban private residence block. The police have identified the victim as a 42-year-old local resident.
Spokesperson for the Kyiv region's Police Directorate Mykola Zhukovych confirmed this information to Ukrainska Pravda.
"We are currently establishing all the circumstances - what caused his death. Because there are reports that the person was allegedly shot at with a Kalashnikov assault rifle. We have got no such information, we do not confirm it," he said.
"We confirm that there is a dead body while our experts have not yet made a conclusion on the cause of death. However, we confirm that the person has received injuries - the gunshot wounds have indeed been found on the body," he said.
Zhukovych added that those who committed the crime had to be found first to provide any versions of the murder.
"Only then we will be able to say what caused it: whether it was a business-related conflict or the one with the neighbors," he said.
Zhukovych told that the victim was a resident of this village and was a citizen of Ukraine.
UNIAN later reported citing own sources that Pavlo Zmozhnyi (that's the name of Caparol branch CEO), born in 1974, was murdered in the vicinity of Vasylkiv.
