Igor Pavlovsky — a former aide to a ruling party lawmaker — was arrested on Monday morning, a spokeswoman for Ukraine’s attorney general said on Twitter.

Two Ukrainian journalists have alleged that Pavlovsky could have acted as an intermediary between the attack’s organisers and the person who ordered it.

Pavlovsky worked for lawmaker Mykola Palamarchuk of President Petro Poroshenko’s party, but Palamarchuk has denied any involvement and has fired Pavlovsky, reported Reuters.
