MOSCOW, March 17 (RAPSI) – Moscow’s Basmanny District Court on Tuesday issued an arrest warrant in absentia for ex-lawmaker of the Ukrainian Verkhovna Rada Igor Mosiychuk allegedly involved in the attack against Russian embassy in Kiev in March 2016, the court’s spokesperson Irina Morozova told RAPSI.
Mosiychuk is charged with assault on persons and institutions enjoying international protection. In December, he was put on the international wanted list.
