He was one of the key witnesses in the state treason case against former Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych, who is also a suspect in a multi-billion dollar corruption scandal and mass murder, according to Kyiv Post.

President Petro Poroshenko called the assassination of Denis Voronenkov, who fled to Ukraine a year ago, "an act of state terrorism", and blamed Russian Federation for the attack.

Police were weighing the possibility that Voronenkov was targeted in a contract killing "considering the identity of the victim, his activities and how the crime was carried out", Kryshchenko said.

"I will talk about criminal deeds of the former president, which led to the ongoing bloodshed in Donetsk and Luhansk regions", he said.
