Former Ukrainian MP wanted in Russian embassy attack case
MOSCOW, November 3 (RAPSI) – Russian investigators have put ex-lawmaker of the Ukrainian Verkhovna Rada Igor Mosiychuk on a wanted list on allegations of his involvement in attack against Russian embassy in Kiev in March 2016, the Investigative Committee’s press service has told RAPSI.
From March 5 to 10, 2016, a group of rebellious people intentionally and in conspiracy committed several attacks against the Russian Federation embassy to aggravate international relations between Russia and Ukraine.
Investigators have received evidence of the former MP’s participation in the attack. His actions violated the order of the diplomatic office’s work and caused serious material damage to its property, the press service says.
Mosiychuk is charged with assault on persons and institutions enjoying international protection.
Moreover, according to Russian investigators, two other Ukrainian lawmakers Vladimir Parasyuk and Andrey Lozovoy have been brought to criminal liability on the same charges.
Also, on December 4, the Moscow City Court will start hearing a case against ex-lawmaker of Ukraine’s Verkhovna Rada Nikolay Rudkovsky, who stands charged with attacks against Russian diplomatic offices in 2014 and 2016. In late November, his detention was extended until May 5.
