KIEV, June 16 (Xinhua) -- Ukrainian law enforcement authorities have arrested a suspect that they believe is linked to the murder of a former Russian lawmaker here in March this year, Kiev Prosecutor's Office said Friday.
The suspect was arrested on Thursday in Pavlograd town in Ukraine's central Dnipropetrovsk region, the office said in a statement, but did not give further details.
Denis Voronenkov, a former lawmaker of the Russian State Duma, or the lower house of parliament, was killed on March 23, when a gunman fired several shots at him in downtown Kiev.
The attacker was wounded in the shooting by Voronenkov's bodyguard and died later in the hospital.
Voronenkov served as a lawmaker from the Communist Party in the Russian State Duma between 2011 and 2016. In December 2016, he was given Ukrainian citizenship and moved to Kiev.
