"It is not surprising as one of the accused is a relative of lawmaker Serhii Kivalov (Opposition bloc faction). I am writing this in order to tighten social and journalistic control over the litigation. Such crime is punished by 12-year imprisonment with confiscation of property under the law. Gentlemen of the Shevchenkivskyi district court in Kyiv, it's up to you to decide now," Lutsenko wrote.
