Large skinhead organization blamed for refugee’s murder

   

Kyiv police have detained a minor suspected of murdering a 40-year-old refugee from Sierra Leone on 8 March. This was announced on Thursday during a press conference given by the Minister of Internal Affairs Yury Lutsenko.  He said that it had been ascertained that the minor belonged to a gang of skinheads who had sent him on this “initiation”.

Mr Lutsenko added that the detained man was presently giving information, including about other members of the organization.

He said that at the present time the police are aware of over 500 skinheads in the capital. He stressed that this didn’t mean that they were all potential killers, however added that they would be watched closely by the police.

As reported here already, the man from Sierra Leone was found on Saturday with multiple knife wounds and a head injury.  He was married to a Ukrainian national and had a child.
