KIEV, June 16. /TASS/. Ukraine’s law enforcers in the city of Pavlograd, the Dnepropetrovsk Region, have been detaining suspects in the murder of former member of Russia’s State Duma Denis Voronenkov, which occurred in Kiev last spring, Ukraine’s National Police said.

"Investigative actions are being carried out in the city of Pavlograd, the Dnepropetrovsk Region, over the murder of Denis Voronenkov. Suspected accomplices in the crime are being detained," the police press-service said. The measures being taken include searches.

"The detainees are taken to police stations for further investigative measures," the police said.

Former Russian State Duma member Denis Voronenkov in December 2014 was stripped of immunity in connection with a criminal case over a hostile takeover of a building in the center of Moscow. In October 2016 he emigrated to Ukraine. In February he faced formal charges of fraud and put on the international wanted list.

On March 23, Voronenkov was gunned down in broad daylight in the center of Kiev seconds after he left the hotel in the company of a bodyguard. An unidentified attacker approached him and fired several shots. In the fire exchange between the killer and the bodyguard that followed both were injured and taken to hospital. The killer died shortly afterwards.
