Sobelev was a prominent politician in Donetsk – a city now owned by pro-Russian rebels in eastern Ukraine – where he also owned a supermarket chain.

Law enforcement said there were three theories about the attempted life of the politician that ended with the death of his son.

These were that the motive was a family or household problem, a financial dispute relating to his businesses or a matter of his & # 39; past professional activities & # 39 ;.

Kiev has suffered a number of notable murders in recent years.

In 2016, investigative journalist Pavel Sheremet was killed in a car bomb.

In 2017, the exiled Russian legislator Denis Voronenkov was shot dead by a hit man.

Interior Deputy Minister Anton Herashchenko of Ukraine said that Sobolev was the & # 39; target & # 39; but refused to say more.
