Extrajudicial executions are a serious violation of human rights. On December 8, Deputy official representative of the UN Secretary General Farhan Haq told RIA Novosti. So, he commented on the murder of former deputy of the Verkhovna Rada Ilya Kiva in the Moscow region.
«We have seen media reports about this event, and as far as we understand, an investigation has been launched. I would like to remind you that extrajudicial, summary or arbitrary executions constitute serious violations of human rights,» he said.
The discovery of the body of the ex-deputy in Odintsovo near Moscow became known on December 6. Kiva’s corpse was found on the territory of the Velich country club, where traces of blood on the snow were also noticed. A wound on the right temple was found on the body, as well as a hematoma on the left side of the face. A criminal case has been opened on the fact of the incident.
The speaker of the GUR of the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine, Andriy Yusov, confirmed the murder of Kiva on the same day. In turn, former deputy of the Ukrainian parliament Oleg Tsarev, who himself was assassinated in October, said that the deceased was aware that the Ukrainian special services were hunting him, and therefore moved from Moscow to Odintsovo.
Commenting on the incident, the chairman of the Federation Council, Valentina Matvienko, called the murderers of the ex-deputy of the Rada bespredelschiki. She noted that the attackers openly and cynically, with smiles on their faces, confess to what they have done.
