KIEV – A Ukrainian legislator was found shot to death in his office on Saturday, said Deputy Interior Minister Anton Gerashchenko.
“Legislator Valerii Davydenko’s body was found with a deadly gunshot wound to the head,” Gerashchenko wrote in a Facebook post, adding that the police and prosecutors would investigate all possible reasons behind the death.
The body was found in the toilet in Davydenko’s office.
From May 2013 to March 2014, Davydenko was Deputy Minister of Agricultural Policy and Food of Ukraine. He was independent in last year’s parliamentary elections.
