Investigative Committee: Ukrainian Soldier Admits Killing Civilians in Luhansk.
TEHRAN (FNA)- A private of the Dnieper battalion has admitted killing women and children in the Luhansk region for remuneration offered by tycoon Ihor Kolomoyskyi, Russia's Investigative Committee Spokesman Vladimir Markin said on Wednesday.
Basmanny district court of Moscow arrested in absentia the Governor of East-central Ukraine's Dnipropetrovsk Region Ihor Kolomoyskyi in July. Russian law enforcement agencies accuse Kolomoyskyi of masterminding murders and use of banned ways and methods of warfare. He is suspected of initiating and financing military operations in South-eastern Ukraine, where over 3,000 people have been killed since April, according to the UN human rights office. Kolomoyskyi was put on international wanted list on June 21, TASS reported. Kolomoyskyi, according to open sources, is one of the richest Ukrainian citizens, founder of the Privat financial and industrial group. Upon the decision of the Verkhovna Rada, Kolomoyskyi was appointed Governor of the Dnipropetrovsk region. In this office, he declared an active fight against the Donetsk and Luhansk people's republics and proposed to form at his expense military units for a raid against them.
