On Wednesday, December 6, the body of former MP Illia Kyva was found in the Moscow region. Two gunshot wounds were discovered.

Ukrainska Pravda reports that "the elimination of the top traitor, collaborator and propagandist Illia Kyva is a special operation of the Security Service of Ukraine (SBU)."

The publication received this information from its interlocutors in the security forces. Currently, the SBU has not denied the information. 

Two gunshot wounds were found on Kyva's body

According to the Investigative Committee of the Russian Federation for Moscow Region, "two gunshot wounds were found on the body of the deceased".

It is noted that investigators examined the scene, seizing the washings, two pistol shells, a cartridge and other items. They also inspected the victim's car and the hotel room where he had been living in recent months.

The case of Kyva's murder was transferred for further investigation to the First Department for Investigation of Particularly Important Cases of the State Investigation Department of the Moscow Region of the Russian Federation.

Former Ukrainian MP found dead in Mosсow region 

According to Russian propaganda media outlet RIA-Novosti, the body of a likely former lawmaker of the Verkhovna Rada, Kyva, was found in the village of Suponevo, Odintsovo district, Moscow region.

This was reported by the Russian propaganda media outlet RIA-Novosti.

"The body of a likely former lawmaker of the Verkhovna Rada, Kyva, was found in the village of Suponevo, Odintsovo district, Moscow region," the Russians said in a statement.

What is known about Kyva? 

Kyva was a former member of the Ukrainian parliament from the banned political party OPFL (2019-2022), former member of the Verkhovna Rada Committee on Law Enforcement, and former advisor to the Minister of Internal Affairs of Ukraine Arsen Avakov.

The politician left Ukraine before the start of the full-scale invasion, first to Spain and later to Russia. On March 6, 2022, the then Prosecutor General Iryna Venediktova signed a suspicion of treason against Kyva, and on March 10, the court remanded the MP in absentia in the treason case. On March 15, he was deprived of his parliamentary mandate.

In April 2023, Kyva applied for political asylum from Russian President Putin, and in August he was notified in absentia of suspicion for calling for the overthrow of the constitutional order.

On November 13, the Lychakivskyi Court of Lviv issued a guilty verdict in the case against former MP Illia Kyva.
