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.
During the search of the detainee’s car the police seized several computers, knives, two handguns with rubber bullets, a bulletproof vest and a journalist’s ID card.
Criminal proceedings have been opened over the incident under the "robbery" and "illegal carrying of weapons" articles. The police are trying to track down the detainee’s accomplices.
The day before more than a dozen young men wearing camouflage uniforms attacked the office of Ukraine’s Channel 17 television, which broadcast live the protests on Independence Square. The channel’s work was suspended after the attack. In addition to that, the assaulters tried to abduct journalist Andrei Pavlovsky.
