Kyiv Appeals Court arrests Buzyna murder suspect Polischuk after his release on bail
The Kyiv Court of Appeals has ruled for the 60 day arrest of a suspect in the murder of journalist Oles Buzyna, Denys Polischuk, having granted the appeal of the prosecutor's office against the ruling of Shevchenkivsky District Court in Kyiv on choosing a pre-trial restriction measure for the suspect with the possibility of bail.
The court also ruled that the period of detention will be calculated from the date of Polischuk's arrest, June 18, an Interfax-Ukraine correspondent had reported.
Buzyna was shot and killed in the yard of an apartment block where he lived in Kyiv on April 16.
Andriy Medvedko and Polischuk, who are accused of murdering Buzyna, were detained on June 18. Another man was detained later that day on suspicion of helping to organize the killing.
Polischuk said he served as a Lieutenant of the Ukrainian Armed Forces in Donbas and commanded the 54th separate reconnaissance platoon.
On June 18, Kyiv's Shevchenkivsky District Court ordered that Polischuk should be held in custody for 60 days as a restraining measure and set bail for his release at UAH 5 million. On June 23, Polischuk was released from a remand center in Kyiv after his bail was paid.
On June 19, the Kyiv Prosecutor's Office appealed the ruling.
