A man detained in the case about the murder of human rights activist Iryna Nozdrovska has been served a notice of suspicion, Prosecutor General Yuriy Lutsenko has reported Facebook.

"An investigator of the Vyshgorod police department has just handed a notice of suspicion of the killing of Nozdrovska," he wrote on Monday, January 8.

Lutsenko thanked employees of the National Police and the prosecutor's office who "managed to do their job in the conditions of artificially created and politicized hysteria."

"They did the same in more than 2,000 proceedings on killings last year," he added.

As Ukrinform reported, on January 1, 2018, human rights activist and lawyer Iryna Nozdrovska was found dead in the Vyshgorod district of Kyiv region.
