Head of the Servant of the People faction David Arakhamia announced three versions of the attempted murder of first assistant of President of Ukraine Serhiy Shefir as Pershyi Nezalezhnyi reported.
Arakhamia believes that the organizers of the attempt, first of all, wanted to say “hello” to Ukraine’s President Volodymyr Zelensky.
“I lean toward the thought that it is the hello to our team, first of all, to the president because he (Serhiy Shefir, - 112.international) is the first assistant; everyone understands that he is a confidant person to him (the president, - 112.international),” he said.
Thus, according to the head of the faction, the smugglers and crime bosses can be behind the attack as the sanctions were introduced against them. Besides, Arakhamia does not exclude the “Russian sign” as recently, the “anti-Russian narrative” sounds in Ukraine.
Moreover, the MP believes that the oligarchs could organize the attempt.
“Of course, on the eve of such great, resolute changes in the fight against influence, the political influence of financial and industrial groups, such version cannot be excluded,” he noted.
He added that the best forensic scientists investigate the case.
