You're reading: Ex-Kuchma guard says Scherban’s killing ordered by Lazarenko, funded by Kyrychenko and Tymoshenko
on social media

In particular, he said that according to the conversations he
recorded, former Ukrainian Prime Minister Pavlo Lazarenko ordered
Scherban’s killing, whereas Lazarenko’s business partner, Petro
Kyrychenko, and former Ukrainian Prime Minister Yulia Tymoshenko
financed the murder.

“Lazarenko was named a person that ordered Scherban’s murder, and a
reason for this was taking control of Donetsk region. The killing was
organized by Kushnir [the leader of a criminal group that operated in
Donetsk and Luhansk regions, who died in Donetsk’s detention center],
and the payment for the killing was made by Kyrychenko and Tymoshenko,”
reads the statement.

The statement also notes that the ex-major learned of the
circumstances of the investigation into the murder from the
conversations that he heard in the office of former Ukrainian President
Leonid Kuchma with senior officials and civil servants.
