Voronenkov killer was already wanted
The killer went to the task with a passport, the authenticity of which is being established.
The killer, who killed the ex-deputy of the State Duma in the center of Kiev, was wanted. According to reports, he was wanted by the police of Dnieper on suspicion of fictitious entrepreneurship and legalization of proceeds received in a criminal way.
Law enforcement agencies are still establishing the identity of the killer without disclosing any preliminary data. Sources specify that the suspect was born in 1988.
It is interesting that a Ukrainian passport found at the killer. Police officers are establishing the authenticity of the document. In addition, according to Prosecutor General of Ukraine Yuri Lutsenko, the suspect had accomplices who brought him to the crime scene. The location of accomplices is unknown.
Currently the murderer is in hospital on the verge of death. The guard of Voronenkov shot him twice: in the chest and head.
As The CrimeRussia previously reported, today, March 23, former State Duma deputy Denis Voronenkov was shot on Boulevard of Taras Shevchenko. He came out with a security guard from the hotel, when the killer shot him from a TT pistol. 3 or 4 bullets hit the abdomen and neck area of the ex-parliamentarian. The security guard, who returned fire and hit the attacker, was injured as well. Both wounded in the shootout are under increased security in hospital.
When it comes to the security guard of the former MP, conflicting information appears about him. Life reported that a Russian passport in the name of Oleg Petrov was found at him. Meanwhile, General Prosecutor of Ukraine Yuri Lutsenko said that the guard was an employee of one of the special services of Ukraine. "The deceased Voronenkov was under the protection of one of the special services of Ukraine. The man who was injured and who was able to shoot at the killer is an active employee of one of the special services of Ukraine", – Lutsenko said.
It is worth noting that earlier the Security Service of Ukraine and the General Prosecutor’s Office refused to recognize that Voronenkov and his wife Maria Maksakova were under the protection of the departments.
First, 19-year-old Artur Gadzhiev tried to set fire to the Severny shopping center, then he began to attack the visitors with an ax and a knife, and later, after running outside, he stabbed random people in the street. Four out of the seven wounded are severely injured.
The woman said she has remained silent because she was afraid she and her daughter might have been killed. However, she decided to give the information away after the investigator who investigated the murder mysteriously died.
The Russian Prosecutor General’s Office, which had previously approved an indictment in a high-profile bootlegging case against billionaire and Forum St Petersburg Group of Companies CEO Dmitry Mikhalchenko, is now demanding the Russian Supreme Court to change the initial jurisdiction.
