KIEV, February 22. /TASS/. Kiev police have detained a suspect in the attack on the office of Ukraine’s Channel 17 television.
"The police detained a 46-year-old resident of the Kirovograd region suspected of involvement in robbery with penetration into a dwelling house," the press service of Ukraine’s National Police said.
