“The surgical team of 16 people are unable to save the victim and came to a cardiac arrest. We’ve opened brain surge was not. That is, even if he survived, he would not be able to be fully human, because the brain would not work”, – said Demin.

Boronenkov have had two guards, but the killer was not a professional

This information was confirmed by the ex-Deputy of the state Duma Ilya Ponomarev. He said Boronenkov was guarded by the military intelligence personnel and is usually with him were two bodyguards. But on March 23, Boronenkov wife became ill, and one of the guards stayed with her.

At the same time killer that killed Boronenkov, worked for money, and were not “ideological,” said Ponomarev.

According to the head of the state guard Valeriy geletey, the killer did not expect the former Deputy of the state Duma about “Premier Palace”, and accompanied him and practically was on the “tail” through two cars. When Boronenkov parked your car, the killer did the same, parked on the Boulevard Shevchenko.

In this case, the killer could not be a professional killer. Thus, according to the former Prosecutor General of Ukraine Svyatoslav Piskun, the killer was suspect, and the crime – “theatrical”. Piskun said he doubted the professionalism of the killer, since his actions had some inconsistencies.

“But then it didn’t happen. And he fired, point-blank shot. …The killers so focus not shoot. If it’s in a public place, two escape routes (left-right), full of people, standing near the gate of the hotel security guards, ditto machine,” said Piskun and added that in this case could be another hidden killer as backup.

According to him, over 30 years he never heard the killer was going to kill colourful shoes, with the certificate and the old gun that can jam.

“It’s theatrical, it’s murder. Ostanovochka. The question is, who put him, who is the Director of this theme”, – said the former attorney General.
