Before Voronenkov’s murder FSB abducted, interrogated his driver in Belarus - widow
Before the former deputy of the Russian State Duma, Denis Voronenkov, was assassinated downtown Kyiv, his personal driver was abducted in the neighboring country of Belarus by the operatives of the Russian FSB security service, Voronenkov’s widow, Maria Maksakova, has told ZIK TV channel.
"The driver crosses the border of Belarus on the eve [of Voronenkov’s murder], drives up to Gomel. A roadblock in Gomel. The driver is stopped, and those at the roadblock call for border guards, or so they said. In fact, two vans with the FSB operatives arrive, and our driver is being abducted," she told ZIK.
According to Maksakova, the driver was interrogated for some 12 hours. He was refused telephone calls, he was not allowed to sleep, and he was not fed. The widow claims she knows who the people were, involved in the abduction.

At the same time, Maksakova says she cannot be certain whether “they” had committed the murder.

In a shootout, his security guard was wounded as well as the killer. The latter died of wounds in the hospital shortly.
