Details: Vyhivskyi says that the procedure for putting the suspects on the international wanted list is ongoing.

Some Russian military personnel were informed of the suspicion in absentia – in September, the police handed over the suspicion to a Russian Guardsman who, with accomplices, committed violent acts against more than 200 Ukrainians from March to October 2022 during the occupation of Kherson.
