Former MP Denis Voronenkov offered position in Ukrainian law enforcement
Former State Duma deputy who represented the Communist Party of the Russian Federation in the Duma has been offered a position in Ukrainian law enforcement.
He told this in a interview with a Dozhd TV Chanel reporter.
He said they contemplated hiring him as a 'specialist on the Russian Federation.' It is worth mentioning he did not specify the agency he was invited to. However, he added that he has not yet accepted the offer.
We should remind you that Voronenkov has been put on the federal wanted list before; he was a suspect in a criminal case concerned with swindling. He was one of the people behind a corporate raid of a Moscow building located in the city center, according to the investigators. The building is worth about 5 million dollars. The incident took place in 2011.
Voronenkov was excluded from the Communist Party; his wife Maria Maksakova, an opera singer, was excluded from the United Russia political party.
After that, Voronenkov, who had left Russia, announced he was granted the Ukrainian citizenship. Moreover, he testified in former Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovich's treason case.
The prosecution has replaced life sentence for Lieutenant of the Federal Security Service (FSB) Aleksey Korotkov with 24 years behind bars in exchange for his support to the investigation: in particular, exposure of other gang’s members who had been dealing with murders of businessmen and random people for more than 10 years.
