Ukrainian People's deputy Anton Gerashchenko said that the Security Service of Ukraine (SBU) timely warned him of the forthcoming assassination. He stated this at the briefing, which was broadcast by "112 Ukraine" TV channel.
According to him, he was asked not to inform this to anyone, including his family members.
"They found out after the preparation of a terrorist act was publicly reported. I will not tell the exact time in the interests of the investigation,” he added.
People's Deputy said that the two men were watching his home, as well as the Verkhovna Rada.
"It so happened when the persons who came to Ukraine, I was just lucky as I have already said, they have been documented sufficiently to ensure that the court had no doubts about the need for their immediate arrest," he explained.
Previously, January 20, the Security Service of Ukraine reported that two men were detained as the suspects in the attempt to murder Gerashchenko by blowing up his car. The criminal case was opened; the investigation is underway.
