KIEV, March 24. /TASS/. "The man who killed Voronenkov did have a National Guard background. We confirm this," an adviser to the SBU’s chief, Yury Tandit, told the media. Earlier, an adviser to Ukraine’s Interior Minister, Anton Gerashchenko, disclosed the name of Voronenkov’s assassin.
He said the murder was committed by a Ukrainian citizen, named Pavel Parshov, born in Sevastopol in 1988.
Denis Voronenkov was shot and killed in a shootout in front of Kiev’s Premier-Palace Hotel on Thursday, March 23.
The head of Kiev’s city police, Andrey Krishchenko, said the incident occurred at about 13:00 Moscow time, when Voronenkov was leaving the hotel in the company of his bodyguards. At that moment the attacker approached him and fired several shots with a handgun. Voronenkov’s bodyguard returned fire. The bodyguard and the attacker were injured and taken to hospital. Hours later, the killer died in hospital.
In December 2014, Voronenkov was stripped of his parliamentary immunity due to a criminal case against him over a corporate raider charge involving a building in downtown Moscow. In October 2016, Voronenkov fled to Ukraine. This February t he was formally charged with fraud and put on an international wanted list.
