The Ministry of Internal Affairs of Ukraine has published evidence of his non-involvement in the murder of Italian journalist Andrea Rockelli.
The investigation established that the distance between the position of a serviceman of the National Guard of Ukraine and the place of death of the Italian journalist Rockelli and the Russian translator Mironov was almost 2 km. That is, Markiv could not see them.

The Ukrainian soldier was sentenced to 24 years in prison. The Ministry of Internal Affairs of Ukraine reported that consideration of the appeal against Markiv’s sentence will begin in September.
