Former Ukrainian parliamentary Pashinsky arrested for firing at person

The politician wounded a Kiev resident in the leg during a quarrel.

Former deputy of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine Sergey Pashinsky was arrested in Kiev on suspicion of shooting Vyacheslav Himikus. The latter was injured in the leg during a quarrel with a politician almost three years ago, the Ukrainian News write.

Kiev’s Pechersky District Court placed Pashinsky into custody until December 4 without the right to bail. The lawyer of the ex-deputy, Andrey Fedur, intends to appeal the decision.

According to the investigation, on December 31, 2016, during a verbal skirmish with Himikus, Pashinsky shot him with his Glock 19 pistol. The forensic medical examination assessed the wound as grave. Pashinsky faces up to eight years in prison.
