Head of the Anti-corruption Action Center (AntAC) Vitaliy Shabunin says expert findings on a recent fire in his Kyiv-based house indicate it was "100% deliberate arson."

"The arson was committed the way that would have left minimal chance for people to survive in the house. By sheer luck the woman next door did not sleep at night. Neither the perpetrators nor, moreover, those who ordered the crime have been identified," he wrote on Facebook on September 22.
