Ukraine interior minister's son detained

Former adviser to Ukraine's Interior Ministry, Ilya Kiva, has said that Oleksandr Avakov, the son of Interior Minister Arsen Avakov, was detained after the search by the detectives of the National Anti-Corruption Bureau (NABU).

"The search is finished. I know that his son Oleksandr is due to be sent to court. They want to imprison him to manipulate the minister and have the possibility of pressure on his decision. As far as I know, the search did not yield any results, so phones and tablets had been seized. I know that for sure since I'm in a constant contact with the minister's family," he told 112 Ukraine TV Channel. APA
