According to the message, the criminal case has been initiated by Kiev’s Solomensky District Police Department where Mochanov was summoned for questioning yesterday.

Mochanov did not disclose any details pertaining to the criminal case, promising to do that later. However, he was quite determined ‘to seek justice and truth’ without reaching any compromises with investigators.

“They are suggesting that I accept an out of court settlement but there won’t be one, guys. No matter how many strings my foe at the police department has pulled,” reads the message.

It was reported early this year that Alexey Mochanov and his driver were assaulted and badly beat up on a highway linking the towns of Druzhkovka and Konstantinovka in Donbass.
