Ukraine: Russia Killed Kremlin Critic 03/24 06:17
MOSCOW (AP) -- A senior Ukrainian official says the killer of Kremlin critic
Denis Voronenko, who was gunned down in Kiev, was a Russian agent.
Anton Gerashchenko, an adviser to Ukraine's interior minister, identified
the man who shot Voronenko on Thursday as 28-year old Pavel Parshov and said he
had been trained in Russia by Russian security services.
"He underwent a special course at a school for saboteurs," Gerashchenko
wrote Friday in a Facebook post.
Voronenko, a former Russian lawmaker who became a vociferous critic of
Moscow following his recent move to Ukraine, was shot dead near the entrance of
an upscale hotel in the center of the Ukrainian capital.
Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko said the murder was an "act of state
terrorism," a charge angrily denied by Russian officials.
