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.
