The tragedy occurred in Kiev on Tuesday afternoon.

42-year-old policeman was severely wounded. He was taken to hospital with a gunshot wound. His heart and diaphragm were damaged. Medics could not save his life and the policeman died several hours later.

A criminal case for "intentional murder" was started, RIA Novosti reports.

27-year-old policeman was shot in the head near Berkut’s hall of residence in Kiev last week. The Ukrainian police are checking whether the so-called nationalist Ukrainian Resistance Army is connected with the murder.
