A Kyiv court on Oct. 18 issued an arrest warrant for Mykola Melnychenko, the former presidential security guard who claims to have secretly recorded conversations that allegedly implicate ex-President Leonid Kuchma and other top officials in murder and other serious crimes.

The development comes days after Prosecutor General Viktor Pshonka said that authorities are searching for Melnychenko, who they say is under investigation for treason but went missing this autumn.

“There is an international search warrant for Melnychenko, who is evading the investigation,” Yuriy Boychenko, spokesperson for the general prosecutor’s office, told Interfax-Ukraine news agency on Nov. 10.
