Ukrainian MP who fled to Russia shot dead near Moscow

Former Ukrainian MP Ilya Kiva killed near Moscow

Former Verkhovna Rada deputy Ilya Kiva was found dead in the Moscow region, RIA Novosti reports.

Kiva left Ukraine in January of 2022 and publicly spoke out in support of Russia.

In November of 2023, a court in Ukraine's Lviv sentenced Kiva in absentia to 14 years in prison. He was found guilty on a number of charges, including treason.

Kiva's body with a cut wound and a hematoma on his face was found in the park area of Velich Country Club Hotel in the village of Suponevo near Moscow, Mash Telegram channel said.

Ilya Kiva's murder was organised by Ukraine's Security Service (SBU), sources at law enforcement agencies said.

Official representative of the Main Intelligence Directorate of the Ukrainian Defence Ministry Andrey Yusov commented on the death of former Verkhovna Rada deputy Ilya Kiva:

“Yes, we can confirm that Kiva is over with. Other traitors of Ukraine and henchmen of the Putin regime will suffer the same fate," Andrey Yusov said as quoted by RBC Ukraine.

Ilya Kiva's last activity was a post on his Telegram account, in which he said that Zelensky did not believe Washington's promises of security guarantees either for himself or for his family, although the evacuation plan had long been prepared.

In his last post on the Telegram, published on December 6 at 9:48 am, Ilya Kiva called Ukrainian  President Volodymyr Zelensky “a bastard who drowned the people of Ukraine in blood." Kiva urged Zelensky to commit suicide.

"It is better for Zelensky to commit suicide now, as losers always do to take all the problems with them and close the problem. But he is too cowardly and narcissistic for such actions," Ilya Kiva wrote. 

On November 27, Kiva accused Zelensky and the Commander-in-Chief of the Ukrainian army Valery Zaluzhny of deliberately delaying negotiations with Russia. Kiva said that the Prosecutor General Office of Ukraine should open a criminal case into Zelensky's and Zaluzhny's actions.
