Prosecutor revokes motion to arrest Maidan activist Bubenchyk
Deputy Prosecutor General Anzhela Stryzhevska has said the investigator of the PGO's Special Investigation Department will present a new suspicion to Maidan activist Ivan Bubenchyk today, April 5.
Speaking at a meeting of Kyiv Pechersk District Court, where the preventive measure is to be selected against Bubenchyk, she said he must be summoned to the PGO's Special Investigation Department at 17:00, an UNIAN correspondent reports.
At the same time, she applied to the court for the revocation of the earlier submitted petition to remand Bubenchyk in custody. Neither the defense team nor the suspect spoke against this.

As UNIAN reported earlier, Bubenchyk was detained on the Ukrainian-Polish border while heading for Poland in the morning on April 3. He is charged with killing two Berkut riot police officers and an attempted murder of another one in 2014.
However, on April 4, Ukrainian Prosecutor General Yuriy Lutsenko said he had decided to replace a prosecutorial team probing the case of Maidan activist Ivan Bubenchyk as they incorrectly qualified the activist's actions.
