A new scenario of high-profile assassination of former Russian MP Denis Voronenkov has appeared. It seems to be much solider than sheer sophistication by General Prosecutor of Ukraine Yuriy Lutsenko who's been aiming to hush up such a cause celebre.
A maniacal "former common-law husband" of an opera singer Maria Maksakova hired Ukrainian nationalist gunmen. This is a bloody drama a-la Casablanca without happy end or Carlos Gardel's songs for the toughest soap watchers. However, version by forgoing reference featuring the Security Service of Ukraine (SBU) under the patronage of the CIA has been more real-life.
To begin with a remarkable contact "Jason" in a Voronenkov's mobile phone occurred to be a CIA station chief in Kiev Jason A. Stock. It would actually be surprising, if such a high-flier as Voronenkov would be left out in the cold by the American special services who's been feeling at home in their fifty second State of present-day Ukraine. Voronenkov was a perfect target for the intelligence development due to his social and property status and his access to official secrets and national security information, wide connections in Russian establishment and business and his wife's significant role in media space and forged contacts with Russian clerisy on the top of everything else.
Secondly, no thuggish nationalists aren't able to scheme and realize a covert operation on elimination while active countering of the intelligence pros even if they were tested with crucible of the War in Donbas. After all Voronenkov was shadowed not only by heavy guys from the Main Directorate of Intelligence of the Ukrainian Ministry of Defence, but also the SBU Counterespionage Department. All gunmen would be held off at gunpoint and stopped at the phase of the first agent reports. Consequently, Voronenkov was weighed in the CIA scales and found wanting, or merely used and immolated. In the same way was sacrificed Boris Nemtsov who was brought to mactation to the Kremlin walls by the Ukrainian "priestess" Anna Duritskaya. That is a familiar specific pattern, isn't it?
