"Ukraineʼs Prosecutor Generalʼs Office provides its procedural guidance in criminal proceedings No. 12018000000000375 dated June 20, 2018, on counts of a criminal offense under Part 2 of Article 286 of the Criminal Code of Ukraine. Since the information was entered into the state register of pretrial investigations, no decision has been made to close the said criminal proceedings," the document said.

Detectives with NPUʼs Main Investigation Department continue their pretrial probe into the accident.

As the publication reports, Andriy Kaluzhynsky has managed to avoid liability for such crime twice.
