KIEV, August 28 /TASS/. A court in Kiev has arrested a police captain suspected of shooting at a car of Ukraine’s first deputy minister of science and education last Tuesday.
"Kiev’s Goloseyevsky court selected a measure of restraint for a man who shot at the administrative car belonging to Ukraine’s First Deputy Minister of Science and Education Inna Sovsun. He will stay in custody but it will be possible to bail him out," the press service of Kiev’s prosecutor’s office said.
According to Ukraine’s UNN agency, the bail amounts to 97,000 hryvnias (4,600 U.S. dollars).
The administrative car of Russia’s First Deputy Minister of Science and Education Inna Sovsun came under fire downtown Kiev last Tuesday. Police detained a 39-year-old police captain and platoon commander of the Titan special battalion of the state security department of Ukraine’s Interior Ministry for the Donetsk region in connection with the crime. Criminal proceedings were initiated on charges of hooliganism committed with the use of firearms. If convicted, the captain may face from 3 to 7 years in jail.
