Maksakova whose ex-partner is suspected of murdering Voronenkov sues 1bln from his ex-wife
State Duma deputy Voronenkov was assassinated in Kyiv in 2017.
The widow of the deceased ex-State Duma deputy Denis Voronenkov, Maria Maksakova, will get his real estate worth 1 billion rubles ($15,442). This decision was made by the court of Tver.
Maria Maksakova has sued real estate worth 1 billion rubles from Voronenkov's ex-wife.
The initiator of the case was Maksakova herself – she did not want to share money with the ex-wife of the parliamentarian, and the judge came through. Voronenkov’s marriage with Maksakova was his third one. He had two children from the previous marriage.
In April, Maksakova stated that her former common-law husband, Vladimir Tyurin, was not involved in the murder of the former deputy. Voronenkov was killed with a firearm on March 23, 2017, when he was leaving a hotel in Kyiv. According to Kyiv law enforcement bodies, it was Tyurin who had ordered the hit.
The intel scandal involving Oleg Smolenkov, who had access to the Kremlin and possessed valuable information, has become a widely discussed topic. It was CNN who reported, citing sources in the CIA and Donald Trump administration, on the “informant” being evacuated from Russia in 2017. It turned out that for certain people in Russia, the spy’s disappearance was not a secret, while the Russian elite denied the fact of espionage in unison with the American one. The Smolenkov family was forced to leave their luxurious mansion in Virginia, and their current whereabouts are unknown. Smolenkov’s “patron,” Assistant to the President of the Russian Federation for the International Sector Yury Ushakov, continues to fulfill his duties. The CrimeRussia looked into the story of “exfiltration” of the top informant and the possible consequences of his work as an intelligencer.
