Kyiv's Pecherskyy district court has arrested Lviv businessman Petro Dyminskyy in absentia, the Prosecutor-General's Office (PGO) has said on its website. The owner of the Karpaty Lviv football club is suspected of involvement in a fatal road accident.

"The court chose custody as a measure of restraint for suspect Dyminskyy. According to pre-trial invstigation bodies, he left Ukraine in August 2017 and has not returned to the country," the PGO said.

Dyminskyy was put on a wanted list on 11 December 2017.

On 18 August 2017, Dyminskyy's Mercedes hit a 31-year-old woman's Opel when she was making a turn in accordance with traffic rules on the Lviv-Krakovets motorway. The woman was killed on the spot.

Dyminskyy's driver Andriy Borshch took the blame but the DNA tests and the victim's family proved him wrong. The family insists Dyminskyy was driving that Mercedes.
