MOSCOW, October 9 (RAPSI) – Investigators have identified alleged organizer of the murder of former Russian lawmaker Denis Voronenkov, Larisa Sargan, the spokesperson of Ukraine’s Prosecutor General, wrote on her Facebook page on Monday.

According to Ukraine’s Prosecutor General Yury Lutsenko, the murder was ordered by Vladimir Tyurin, the former husband of Voronenkov’s widow Maria Maksakova. However, prosecutors claim, that the crime was planned by Russia’s Federal Security Service (FSB), the statement reads.

Law enforcement authorities believe that the murder of Voronenkov is connected with his evidence of the Russian military prescriptive in Ukraine, and testimony in the treason case against former Ukrainian president Viktor Yanukovych.

“Russian security services prepared a scheme of the witness’ liquidation,” Lutsenko stated.

Investigation is completed; the case has been forwarded to the Shevchenkovsky District Court of Kiev, according to the statement.

Former deputy of the Russian State Duma Denis Voronenkov was shot dead in the central part of Ukrainian capital Kiev on March 23, 2017. His murderer was mortally wounded in the act and later died in a hospital.

The killer was identified as a Ukrainian citizen Pavel Parshov, who served in the Ukrainian National Guard, adviser to the Interior Minister of Ukraine Anton Gerashchenko said earlier. Parshov was wanted by the Ukrainian police for fictitious business activity and money laundering.

According to Ukrainian prosecutors, two men allegedly involved in the murder have been arrested and detained. Two other suspects have been put on the wanted list.

Voronenkov, a former member of the Communist Party, moved to Ukraine last October together with his wife Maria Maksakova, also an ex-lawmaker, and was granted Ukrainian citizenship in December 2016.
