The police are looking for the accomplice of Pavlo Parshov, who on March 23 in the center of Kyiv shot the former State Duma deputy Denys Voronenkov. According to adviser to the head of the Ministry of Internal Affairs Anton Gerashchenko, the killer's accomplice had been waiting for him in a Daewoo car, but left after seeing that Parshov was wounded.

The journalist of the STB television channel Olena Lunkova said that the killer was assisted by Yaroslav Levenets, the call sign "Hunter".

Yaroslav Levenez was born on August 28, 1985 in Zhovti Vody, Dnipropetrovsk region. In 2012, he was declared wanted for committing crimes under Art. 28 part 3 (organization of a criminal group), art. 205 part 2 (organization and management of fictitious business) and art. 209 part 3 (legalization (laundering) of money obtained by criminal means by a group of individuals in especially large amounts). Together with him, three more people were announced for search: among them is Andriy Mandryk, whom some media outlets confused with Parshov, because the articles he accused were the same.

At the same time, he called himself a political prisoner of the Yanukovych regime, who got behind the bars because he tried to counteract the drug trade. In the social network "VKontakte" there were still announcements of promotions in support of Levenets, stating that he had 2 firms that the Yanukovych family tried to assign.

Levenets has spent almost 2 years in the remand center. In Dnipro, local activists conducted numerous and large-scale actions in support of him.

Press secretary of far-right organization Pravyi Sektor, Artem Skoropadsky, persuades that Levenets obtained home arrest, and joined Pravyi Sektor battalion. He went to the front with the 5th Battalion. In early 2015, he left the far-right organization Pravyi Sektor and joined "Donbas" battalion. He was the coach of the combat hopak.

People's Deputy Semen Semenchenko in an interview with Novoye Vremya, dated February 2016, said that Levents was suspected of the 2012 year case. "Five people are now being prosecuted from the current Donbas battalion... and five people from past convoys who are no longer serving." Nine people raised suspicions for 2014, one was Yaroslav Levents," he said. They chosen for Levenets a preventive measure in the form of house arrest.

Artem Skoropadsky found Levents's wife, who told that eight days before the murder he was detained at the station, taken to the police, but released.

"On the day of the murder, she spoke on the phone with Yaroslav at about 11 am (the murder was committed at 11:30 am.) He said that he had come to Kyiv on business and that he should visit the prosecutor's office… He said that he would soon come home," press-secretary of the far-right organization refers to the wife of Yaroslav.

In the evening on the day of Voronenkov’s murder, she telephoned her husband, but he had already switched off the phone. Then she called her husband's friend who said that he had recently talked with him, and that Yaroslav said that he was interrogated by the prosecutor's office at about 16-17 o'clock. Allegedly, it was 5-6 hours after the murder. After that, he disappeared.

His phone is switched off until now, no one knows where he is. On March 24, the day after the murder of Voronenkov, Ministry of Internal Affairs declared Levents wanted by article 263 - illegal handling of arms.
