The main version of the investigators is suicide.

In Pervomaisk, the Nikolaev region of Ukraine, the police found the body of a candidate for deputy of the Verkhovna Rada from the Opposition Bloc, Vasily Mosyakin. The party believes that the politician was killed because of his political activities. The investigation is still inclined to suicide, but it has initiated a criminal case of premeditated murder, according to ICTV channel.

“We do not believe that there could even be a hint of suicide. I appeal to the President and the Interior Ministry to take control of the killing of a candidate four days before the election,” said Oleksandr Vilkul, a representative of the Opposition Bloc.

Police found a hunting rifle near Mosyakin’s body. The politician died from a chest injury in the territory of his enterprise.
