Interior Affairs Minister, Arsen Avakov, has personally paid almost EUR 24,000 for a charter flight by a Dassault Falcon jet to return to Ukraine military man Vitalii Markiv, who had been justified by the Court of Appeal in the Italian Republic in a case upon involvement in murdering an Italian photojournalist Andrea Rocchelli in Donbas.

Ukrainian News agency learned this from a well-informed source in law enforcement bodies.

According to the source, on Thursday, the National Agency on Corruption Prevention (NACP) will be informed about such an action.

The plane flew for 2 hours and 35 minutes.

On July 12, 2019, a court in Italian Pavia sentenced Markiv to 24 years in prison.
