Ukraine's SBU Claims Assassination of Illya Kyva in Moscow

A former MP of Ukraine’s Verkhovna Rada Illya Kyva was assassinated in the Moscow Oblast while out walking on Dec. 6. He was shot twice and the casings were left at his side. Kiev had convicted him in absentia for “high treason” last month and his assets were seized. Both Ukrainska Pravda and Kyiv Independent cite sources in Ukraine’s Security Service (SBU) who report that the SBU takes credit for the hit. Meanwhile, the spokesman for Kiev’s Military Intelligence Directorate (GUR) Andrii Yusov declared: “Indeed, we can confirm that Kyva is eliminated. Such a fate awaits other traitors of Ukraine and lackeys of the Putin regime.” Yusov went on that Kyva was one of the most “repugnant turncoats, traitors, and collaborators.”

TASS reports that RBC-Ukraine news agency published a hit list of politicians in Russia, which includes former President Viktor Yanukovych, former Prime Minister Mykola Azarov, former MP, leader of the Opposition Platform For Life party Viktor Medvedchuk, Kherson Region Governor Vladimir Saldo, and former MP Oleg Tsaryov. Tsaryov was shot last month in Crimea, also claimed by Kiev. He lost a lot of blood, but survived the attempted assassination.

On Dec. 7, as TASS reported, Russia’s Federation Council, acting on a proposal from Deputy Speaker Sen. Konstantin Kosachev, instructed the Committees for Defense and Security and for International Affairs to prepare systemic measures to protect Russian politicians, public figures, and news media figures from terrorist attacks by the Kiev regime.
