“He (Firtash) stated that Lazarenko ordered the killings of Donetsk Governor Yevhen Scherban in 1996 and the head of [gas trading company] Itera in Kyiv for not sharing Lazarenko’s gas business philosophy,” reads the U.S. ambassador’s cable, referring to a conversation that took place on Dec. 8, 2008.

Firtash issued a statement on Dec. 2 refusing to discuss much of what he talked about with Taylor; Lazarenko has always denied involvement in Shcherban’s murder.
