KIEV, December 29, 2:07 /ITAR-TASS/. A fifth suspect who was detained last Friday for beating up Ukrainian journalist Tatyana Chornovol has pleaded guilty of the attack, the press service of the Ukrainian Interior Ministry said on December 28.
The 34-year-old detainee is a law enforcer from Dneprodzerzhinsk, the Dnepropetrovsk region of Ukraine. He said he had come to Kiev to buy a Porsche Cayenne.
“Investigators are going to question all the suspects simultaneously in order to reconstruct the incident,” the Interior Ministry clarified.
Previously, the Pechersky district court in Kiev put the other four suspects of the brutal attack on Chornovol into custody for two months until February 23. They include Alexander Kotenko and Sergei Kotenko as well as Alexander Khramtsov and Andrei Nasikovsky.
The Ukrainian journalist was beaten up brutally on the night from December 24 to December 25. According to police, she was driving on the Kiev-Borispol highway in her car when she was cut off by another car. Unidentified people pulled her out of her car and beat her up. After that, they threw the car to the side drain.
Ukraine’s Interior Ministry reports that a pre-trial investigation has been launched on charges of hooliganism and infliction of bodily harm.
Police are considering several versions behind the attack, including the journalist’s professional activities; personal unfriendly relations and a road accident.
