According to Ukrainian Prosecutor General Yuri Lutsenko, Vladimir Tyurin, the ex-boyfriend of the deputy’s widow Maria Maksakova, had a personal motive.
It was Vladimir Tyurin, the ex-boyfriend of Voronenkov's widow Maria Maksakova, who masterminded the murder of former State Duma deputy Denis Voronenkov, Ukrainian Prosecutor General Yuri Lutsenko announced today. According to him, the crime was committed out of personal motives.
"Tyurin was Maksakova’s common-law husband for 8 years. She was Mr. Voronenkov’s wife when the murder happened," said Lutsenko.
The Ukrainian investigative authorities have also established the organizer and executors of the murder, according to Lutsenko.
The Prosecutor General's Office of Ukraine believes that Pavel Parshov, the hitman that was shot at the crime scene, was in conspiracy with the Ukrainian nationals Vasilenko, Tarasenko, Los and Levents. Los and Tarasenko have been detained; Vasilenko and Levenets are on the wanted list.
Former Duma deputy Denis Voronenkov was killed on March 23, 2017 downtown Kiev near the Premier Palace Hotel. His wounded bodyguard managed to deliver a fatal wound to the murderer, Pavel Parshov, who died in the hospital later.
Let us recall that it was in mid-September that the first suspicions of Ukrainian law enforcements against the Russian thief in law were reported. According to a CrimeRussia source, another paymaster was the Ukrainian shadow financier Evgeny Dvoskin, who has had a number of previous convictions. Dvoskin and Tyurik, who was renting a house in the Crimea at the time, are known to have been friends.
