According to the statement, law enforcement authorities served suspicion to the head of the criminal organization, a former assistant to a Member of Parliament of previous convocations. It is noted that the indictment on the specified person is already under consideration by the Prymorskyi District Court of Odesa with an agreement on the recognition of his guilt in concealing a crime - an attack on Handziuk.

As Ukrainian News Agency earlier reported, on June 6, 2019, the Pokrovskyi District Court of Dnipropetrovsk region sentenced the perpetrators of the attack on Handziuk. 5 former fighters of the Ukrainian Volunteer Army, participants in the ATO, were sentenced.
