When he moved to Ukraine previous year, Voronenkov claimed that persecution by Russian security services was the driving force behind his decision.

While in Kiev, Voronenkov was openly critical of President Vladimir Putin and other pro-Russian leaders.

Nemtsova says Voronenkov was considered a traitor by many Russians. The attacker ambushed Voronenkov with a pistol in front of the Premier Palace hotel while a Ukraine special forces bodyguard accompanied the former MP.

Ukrainian officials said the gunman, who they claimed was a Ukrainian citizen, later died from wounds in his chest and head.

"Voronenkov was one of the main witnesses of Russian aggression against Ukraine and, in particular, the role of Yanukovich regarding the deployment of Russian troops to Ukraine", he said.

Police said an unidentified man gunned down Denis Voronenkov outside the entrance of an upscale hotel in the country's capital. With the threat of corruption investigation hanging over him, he and his wife Maria Maksakova, a former deputy with the ruling United Russia party, went to Ukraine.

"Any speculations about the alleged Russian involvement are absurd", Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov told journalists in a conference call.

Critics said he fled in order to escape criminal charges.

I think we'll know in a couple of months. "We literally listed a litany of media reports that are in the public domain". When the topic moved to trade, Trump said the USA would do "fantastically well" in its trade relations with Germany.

"Sadly, Denis Voronenkov has joined others like Sergei Magnitsky and Boris Nemtsov who have paid with their lives for speaking the truth, for in Putin's Russian Federation, there is no greater crime", McCain said.

The assailant also wounded Voronenkov's bodyguard, who fired back and wounded the gunman.

Ukraine won the right to host this year's show after Ukrainian singer Jamala won the 2016 event.

Speaking at Ukrainian Security Service (SBU) training facilities near Kyiv on March 24, Poroshenko called on law enforcement and security structures to join efforts to solve the case.

According to research, about 5 million Ukrainians work overseas, including 2.5 million in Russian Federation, said Aleksandr Okhrimenko, director of the Ukrainian Analytical Center.

Voronenko himself expected some sort of retaliation from Russian Federation.

Volodymyr Fesenko, a political analyst in Kiev, said Voronenkov's testimony was important to Ukraine because of his level of access in Russian Federation.
