Radical Party MP Ihor Mosiichuk regained consciousness after a surgery and made an official statement.

Mosiichuk's press service posted the statement on Facebook, Censor.NET reports.

The press service said Mosiichuk's condition is of medium severity. He has been put in an emergency room in a hospital.

"I believe the masterminds [of the attempt upon him last night - ed.] are in Moscow, doers are in Kyiv. They might be agents among patriots. This is the first attempt upon a state official of this level in Ukraine. I am alive only thanks to my killed border guard, Ruslan. He is a former Berkut fighter, and was on the other side of the barricades in 2013 [during Maidan events - ed.]. Yesterday he was killed saving my life, the life of a nationalist.

"... My sincere condolences go to Ruslan's family. I will never forget them. Now I am a father of three kids. The third child in Ruslan's four-year-old daughter," Mosiichuk wrote.

He added the surgery on him was successful. The MP is guarded in the hospital he stays in.
