The inter-factional association (IFA) in Verkhovna Rada 'For Democratic Belarus' calls on the Minister of Internal Affairs Denys Monastyrsky to take personal control of the investigation into the death of the leader of the Belarusian House in Ukraine Vitaliy Shishov. A relevant statement was made by Ukrainian MP Oleksiy Honcharenko in Telegram.

According to the MPs, the Special Forces of Belarus may be involved in the death of Shishov.

"The IFA 'For Democratic Belarus' urges the Minister of Internal Affairs Denys Monastyrsky to take the investigation of Vitaliy Shishov's death under his personal control, since there are reasonable suspicions that the Lukashenka regime is involved," the statement said.
