According to CNN, yesterday, Ukrainian President Viktor Yushchenko announced that a Ukrainian General Alexei Pukach has been arrested in connection with the murder of a journalist Georhiy Gongadze nearly 9 years ago. Gongadze, the pioneer editor of the critical Internet Ukrainian newspaper Ukrainian Pravda, was abducted in September 2000 and later found decapitated. Pukach had been on the run for years. Organizations are hopeful that Pukach will be able to identify who ordered the murder, or more to the point whether or not former Ukrainian President Leonid Kuchma did in fact order the murder.
Good work, Ukrainian security service!
