General Prosecutor’s Office considers a version that Denis Voronenkov was murdered because of the FSB’s smuggle case covered by the President of Russian Federation Vladimir Putin. This was announced by the Prosecutor General Yuriy Lutsenko on air of 112 Ukraine TV channel.
“Voronenkov worked in the Federal Drug Control Service of Russia. He had a special rank of colonel, he was very famous for the Russian case “Three Whales” that was investigated by his unit. He himself was a head of the unit for invading organized criminal groups. While investigating they found out that smuggle of furniture delivered to the store “Three Whales” is a part of a huge smuggle of Russia’s FSB. As a result of the investigation, several dozens of FSB generals were fired including a person who served in the security service of Rosneft and was close to the President. That’s why right now we have a version about his testifying in Yanukovych’s case and a version that he was killed because of FSB’s smuggle case,” Lutsenko said.
“Both versions will be worked out during the investigation and by my decision transferred from the National Police to Kyiv’s Prosecutor’s Office,” Lutsenko said.
Earlier it was reported that Voronenkov's killer was a citizen of Ukraine. Killer died in the hospital in Kyiv. He got two wounds in the chest and one shot in the head.
Those who ordered such murder are located in Russia. Now law enforcement officers find out the circumstances of the murder, in particular, how the killer got the information about the actions and movements of Voronenkov, according to the Adviser to Interior Minister Anton Herashchenko.
“Democratic laws are working in Ukraine, unlike other post-Soviet countries. My main guarantor was law. Though chief Russian TV channels already cry out that Voronenko should be exchanged for Sushchenko and if it’s impossible he has to be killed like Bandera. People in Russia went crazy, they are sick,” he said.
