The source adds that Kyva was one of the priority targets and had been "tracked" for a long time. The SSU has been studying his schedule, travel routes and habits and finally killed him in Moscow Oblast despite high security.

Quote: "This is a signal to all the traitors and war criminals who have sided with the enemy. Remember: Russia will not protect you. As Vasyl Maliuk, SSU Head, said earlier, death is the only prospect that awaits the enemies of Ukraine".

Previously: Russian media reported that the body of former Ukrainian MP Illia Kyva had been found in Moscow Oblast.

Sources of Ukrainska Pravda in the security services confirmed that the Security Service of Ukraine was behind the assassination.


  • When the full-scale war began, Kyva fled to Russia, where he associated with Russian propagandists and claimed that "the Ukrainian people must be liberated" and "Ukrainians, Belarusians and Russians are one people". 
  • The Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine (Ukrainian parliament) stripped Kyva of his parliamentary mandate in March 2022.
  • At the same time, Kyva was served with a notice of suspicion for encroachment on the territorial integrity of Ukraine and treason.
  • In November 2023, Kyva was sentenced by a Ukrainian сourt to 14 years’ imprisonment with confiscation of his assets under several articles of the Criminal Code of Ukraine, including high treason and publicly calling for the violent change and overthrow of the constitutional system.
