"His life is safe, he can cooperate with investigation and testify," Shevchenko said.
He said the attacker has been questioned. Investigators found that he had committed several crimes before, both in and outside Ukraine.
Shevchenko said the Russian trace in the attack is obvious. He reminded that the suspect used personal details of a deceased person for the legend he was using to tell about himself.
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.
