"Pre-trial investigation has found that at 11:10 p.m., Dec. 24, 2014, near Kyiv hotel, Russian citizen O. Sokolenko tried to assassinate Parubii, tossing an F-1 grenade at his feet. Only by a happy coincidence, the explosion did not kill ex-Secretary of the National Security and Defense Council Andrii Parubii.
The investigation has established that the person who ordered the assassination could be Stanislav Shuliak, former commander of the Internal Troops of Ukraine (in the Interior Ministry led by fugitive ex-Minister Zakharchenko), who is currently hiding in the territory of the Russian Federation.
S. Korobov and D. Sokolovskyi, accused under the case, hired an assassin, presumably a citizen of the Russian Federation O. Sokolenko, arranged his visit to Kyiv and covered up his moving around the city. Korobov also covered Sokolenko during the crime as well as his ways to escape.
On Jan. 30, 2015, S. Korobov and D. Sokolovskyi were apprehended as a result of a special operation by law enforcers.
At the moment, criminal proceedings are underway.
