 Voronenkov’s assassination to have no impact on probe into treason charges against Yanukovych, - military prosecutor's office

The prosecutor's office insists that former Russian State Duma deputy Denys Voronenkov, who was murdered in Kyiv, was as important for the investigation into ex-President Viktor Yanukovych’s high treason like all other witnesses while his murder will by no means affect the probe.

"The position of the prosecution is that this case has no key or non-key, major or secondary, important or not important witnesses. Every witness is very important for us, while we have more than 100 of them," member of the Main Military Prosecutor's Office Ruslan Kravchenko's told Interfax-Ukraine on Tuesday, Censor.NET reports.

According to him each witness in this case gave and still gives testimony and each of them is as important for the prosecution as Voronenkov was.

Kravchenko also said that despite all the efforts Yanukovych was making to evade the responsibility, the prosecution would use all the collected evidence, which should suffice to prove the ex-president's guilt.

Denys Voronenkov was shot dead in downtown Kyiv March 23. The killer also managed to injure Voronenkov's bodyguard. The incident took place outside Kyiv's Premier Palace Hotel.

Voronenkov was a witness in the treason case against fugitive Ukrainian president Viktor Yanukovych. In his recent interview with Censor.NET Voronenkov said that Yanukovych was a traitor "who was involved in mass slaughter, who had fled to the foreign country and urged foreign troops to slay his people. I believe this person should have received not asylum but a fair trial in Russia."

Voronenkov moved to Ukraine with his wife, former Duma member, singer Maria Maksakova, and their infant child in late 2016. He became a citizen of Ukraine and abandoned Russian passport in December 2016. On Feb. 15, 2017 he was put on federal wanted list in the Russian Federation. Voronenkov said the reason behind his migration was persecution by FSB in Russia.
