Russian businessman and son of thief in law Vladimir Tyurin, Dmitry Tyurin filed a lawsuit against the Ukrainian supervisory authority at the same time when Interpol declared his father, suspected of orchestrating the murder of Denis Voronenkov, wanted at the request of Ukraine.

The son of thief in law Vladimir Tyurin, whom Ukraine accused of organizing the murder of runaway ex-State Duma deputy Denis Voronenkov, filed a suit through his lawyers on the protection of honor and dignity with Kiev's Pechersk District Court against the General Prosecutor's Office of Ukraine. 

As reported by Ukrinform, this was announced at a press conference by Dmitry Tyurin's lawyers Nikolay Ruyte and Sergey Koziy.

In his claim, 33-year-old Dmitry Tyurin demands a refutation of information about his involvement in the murder of former State Duma deputy Denis Voronenkov. His lawyers stated that their client had nothing to do with the crime, and they said they had given Ukrainian law enforcement officers minute-by-minute information about Dmitry Tyurin's stay in Kiev within a day before Voronenkov’s homicide.

"The information publicly disseminated by the Prosecutor General's Office of Ukraine collides with reality and damages the honor, dignity and business reputation of Dmitry Tyurin," said lawyer Ruyte.

To recap, on October 9, 2017, during a briefing of the Prosecutor General's Office of Ukraine on the detection of the murder of former deputy of the Russian State Duma Voronenkov, the son of thief in law Tyurik, Dmitry Tyurin, was mentioned as an accomplice of the criminal group. Despite the absence of Dmitriy Tyurin's procedural status in the report, he was actually accused of mediation in the organization of the murder, which, according to the Ukrainian Prosecutor General's Office, was organized by his father on a personal motive - thief in law Vladimir Tyurin for several years lived with opera singer Maria Maksakova, who subsequently married Voronenkov. 

In particular, Prosecutor General of Ukraine Yury Lutsenko said at the briefing that on March 20, 2017 Dmitry Tyurin brought a part of the funds for the killers and met with the leader of the criminal group, Yury Vasilenko. Lutsenko argued that the investigation had established the fact that Tyurin Jr. and Vasilenko has been in one place, as well as their contact. 

The lawyers of Dmitry Tyurin explained at the press conference the reason for the arrival of Dmitry Tyurin in Kiev. According to them, he arrived in the Ukrainian capital to meet with former Prosecutor General Svyatoslav Piskun and his wife to discuss the purchase of their house in the Crimea. On the eve of his visit to Ukraine, Dmitry Tyurin talked with a realtor who dealt with selling the house of the former Prosecutor General. 

In addition, Ruyte noted, in response to defense’s requests for protection to the SBU and the Kyiv prosecutor's office, they received official replies stating that Dmitry Tyurin did not have the status of a suspect in the criminal case of the murder of Voronenkov. Due to this, the reputation of their client suffers, and his losses, according to the lawyer, are increasing daily. As previously reported by The CrimeRussia, Dmitry Vladimirovich Tyurin, who graduated from the prestigious Swiss boarding house Le Rosey and Royal College of London, is engaged in business. According to the Unified State Register of Legal Entities, he is the founder, co-founder and General Director of a number of legal entities registered in Moscow and Bratsk.

The first court hearing on the suit of Dmitry Tyurin to the General Prosecutor’s Office of Ukraine is scheduled for July 2, 2018. In the meantime, it became known today that at the request of Ukrainian law enforcement agencies, the father of Dmitry Tyurin, influential thief in law Tyurik, was declared internationally wanted by Interpol. Earlier, Ukraine had already sent a request to Russia for his extradition, which remained unanswered by Russian law enforcement agencies.
