Oleksandr Kunytsky, the candidate from Servant of the People party is now on the database of Myrotvorets center. The man runs for the Ukrainian parliament, as the candidate from Kharkiv's electoral district No.169. 

The reason is the assumed double citizenship, which is against Ukrainian law; the research center claims there is information about Kunytsky holding both Ukrainian and Israeli passports. Another reason for bringing the candidate to the database would be the assumed cooperation with Russian special services.

Myrotvorets center turned to the law enforcement agencies, asking to consider taking Kunytsky to the database as the statement of him committing the deliberate actions against Ukraine's national security and other violations.

Previously, the Ukrainian media found out that Kunytsky served in the Israeli army. MP Andriy Denysenko and Assistant Head of the Central Election Committee Oleksandr Ostapa claimed that Kunytsky had both Ukrainian and Israeli citizenship, which the Ukrainian law forbids.

Kunytsky denies owning two passports.
