The defense of Yana Dugar, suspected in the murder of journalist Pavel Sheremet, received a petition to modify his preventive bail measure in the amount of 168,000 hryvnia.
This was announced on Facebook by defender Dugar Denis Lomanov.
“Today, unexpectedly, a notice was issued regarding the completion of the preliminary inquiry and the opening of the preliminary inquiry documents in the so-called Sheremet case. A request has also been made to amend the preventive bail measure, according to which the prosecution asked to determine a bond in the amount of 80 NMDG, or 168,000 hryvnia, “he wrote.
Lomanov also noted that the defense had gathered compelling evidence of Dugar’s innocence.

In particular, the investigation suspects the doctor and volunteer Yulia Kuzmenko, the nurse of one of the paratrooper battalions Yan Dugar and the ATO veteran Andrei Antonenko.
