Chief Military Prosecutor of Ukraine Anatoliy Matios claims that those who attempted to shoot Prosecutor General Viktor Shokin's room from the outside of the Prosecutor General's office building on Monday evening knew about his presence in the office, but the bulletproof glass prevented casualties.

"The investigators think that the shooter and those who hired him knew how all things and objects are located [in the room] and were aware of the whereabouts, personal presence of the prosecutor general there, as the shots were fired at close range in an attempt to hit the torso or head," Matios said.

He also said that the shooter had made three shots.

"Only the fact that the glass was bulletproof actually made it possible to avoid lethal shots,"  he added.
