This was announced by Police Chief of Ukraine Serhii Kniaziev, Censor.NET reports citing Ukrainski Novyny.
"The suspect was detained, he is now in a regular ward, but investigative activities continue. At this moment, he is being questioned. I will not give you his last name, first or second one [the man was captured with an allegedly fake passport - ed.], his identity will be confirmed legally," he said.
Kniaziev refused to say whether the real identity of the attacker was established.
Chief policeman stressed that the suspect was detained thanks to quick reaction of Okueva, who took out her gun as the killer attacked her husband Adam Osmaev and shot him four times.
In the evening of June 1, an attempt was made on the lives of Chechen volunteer fighters of Ukrainian Kyiv-2 unit, Donbas war participants Adam Osmaev and Amina Okueva in Kyiv's Podil district. The attacker passed himself as a foreign journalist who allegedly wanted to interview them, got close to them, opened fire from a gun, and wounded Osmaev. His wife Okueva, to protect herself and repulse the attacker, opened fire and gravely wounded the killer. Both men have been taken to hospital with grave wounds. Osmaev is convicted by Russia of alleged attempt on President Putin.
