The Golosiivsky District Court of Kyiv has arrested a suspect linked to the assassination of former Russian lawmaker Denis Voronenkov. He will be held for two months without bail, according to Nadiya Maksymets, the press secretary of Kyiv prosecutor’s office.

Voronenkov, an ex-member of the Russian parliament (State Duma) who fled the country and became an open critic of Russian President Vladimir Putin, was gunned down on March 23 outside the Premier Palace hotel in Kyiv.

Maksymets said that a 36-year-old Ukrainian from Dnipropetrovsk Oblast, whom the police arrested on June 16, is accused of a murder committed by a group of people with a premeditated agreement.
