CORRECTION Kiev identifies suspects in murder of exiled Russian lawmaker

Kiev (dpa) - Ukraine has identified the person allegedly behind the assassination of former Russian lawmaker Denis Voronenkov as a previous partner of his widow, Ukrainian Prosecutor General Yuriy Lutsenko said on Monday.

Lutsenko claims that the suspect worked together with the Russian security service FSB to have Voronenkov‘s murder carried out by a hitman.

Voronenkov was shot dead in the street in March after leaving Kiev‘s upscale Premier Palace Hotel.

Along with his wife Maria Maksakova, also a former Russian lawmaker, Voronenkov fled Russia last year amid allegations of criminal activity and received Ukrainian citizenship.

Voronenkov was considered instrumental in Ukraine‘s treason case against Russia-connected former Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych, who was ousted three years ago amid mass protests calling for closer ties with the West.

During Vorenonkov‘s time in the Duma he voted in favour of Russia‘s annexation of the Crimean peninsula.

The presumed killer was shot by a bodyguard and died later in hospital. The man had previously served in a voluntary nationalist fighting force that supported separatists in their armed conflict with Russia in the country‘s east.
