MOSCOW, March 25. /TASS/. Moscow expects the Ukrainian authorities will take the necessary measures to track down and bring to justice all those responsible for the murder of lawyer Yuri Grabovsky, the Russian Foreign Ministry said in a commentary on Friday.
"Our worst suspicions have come true," the Foreign Ministry said. "Despite all warnings the Kiev authorities have proved unable or reluctant to guarantee Yuri Grabovsky’s security."
"We expect that the Ukrainian authorities will take the necessary measures to identify and bring to justice all accomplices in the crime," the Foreign Ministry said.
Earlier reports said that Grabovsky, who mysteriously disappeared in early March, has been found dead in Ukraine. Grabovsky was the lawyer of former Russian serviceman Alexander Aleksandrov who is on trial in Ukraine along with another Russian citizen, Yevgeny Yerofeyev, the ministry reminded.
"Ukraine is apparently not planning to stick to legal methods and put up with what is not in line with the scheme built by the ruling circles and based on the anti-Russian and sometimes frankly Russophobe hysteria," the statement said.
The resort to intimidation and murder of those who disagree with Kiev, including lawyers, shows that anti-democratic and totalitarian tendencies grow in Ukraine that are not in line with the European law, the ministry stressed.
