In Kyiv, law enforcement officers detained the first deputy head of the Desnyanskyy district state administration, the director of a medical institution and his deputy, as well as a polyclinic security guard in the case of the deaths of people near a closed shelter, the Office of the Prosecutor General has said.
The three detained officials are being served notices of suspicion on charges of gross negligence that caused grave consequences (Part 2 of Article 367 of the Criminal Code of Ukraine), and the security guard is being served notices of suspicion on charges of leaving in danger, which led to death (Part 3 of Article 135 of the Criminal Code of Ukraine).
Prior to that, as part of the investigation, prosecutors and police conducted searches in two Kyiv City State Administration departments, the Desnyanskyy district state administration and a clinic.
Investigative actions are ongoing.
On the night of 1 June, a Russian missile attack in Kyiv killed three people, including a 9-year-old child. Residents tried to get into the shelter of a polyclinic in Desnyanskyy district, but its doors were locked.
Subsequently, the head of the Kyiv city military administration, Serhiy Popko, said that no one in Kyiv has the right to absolve themselves of responsibility for the deaths of Kyiv residents near the shelter, and the director of the Kyiv city state administration's municipal security department said that the administration had no choice but to keep the shelters in the city permanently open.
Meanwhile, the Kyiv city military administration reported that it was initiating a meeting of the Kyiv Defence Council to discuss the condition and use of the shelters.
