On June 11, the Main Investigation Department of SBU Sternenko was informed of a suspected crime under art. 115 h.1 (intentional infliction of unlawful death on another person) and art. 263 para. 2 (transport of cold steel without the authorization provided for by law) of the Criminal Code.
His defense later announced that the Shevchenkovsky District Court in Kiev would consider the request for the selection of a preventive measure in the form of a 24-hour house arrest.
Sternenko is an Odessa activist, a member of the local Euromaidan and a former head of the Odessa law sector.
On the evening of May 24, 2018, two assailants attacked Sternenko and his girlfriend. While pushing back, the activist fatally wounded one of them with a knife in the stomach. Sternenko himself and the second attacker were stabbed and wounded, which the police quickly arrested, but immediately released, granting him witness status and then state protection.

In total, three attempts were made on Sternenko in Odessa in 2018.
The cases of attacks were referred to the General Directorate of Investigations of the SBU in Kiev, as explained by the prosecution, because of the “need to verify information on the possible involvement of local authorities and the police in the attacks ”.
For two years, the investigation has not officially established the organizers of the attacks on Sternenko. There is no penalty in these cases.
