In an interview with "Tsenzor.net", the former Deputy of the State Duma of Russia Denis Voronenkov said that he had received the citizenship of Ukraine and confirmed that testified in the Prosecutor's office against the ex-President of Ukraine Viktor Yanukovych and Crimean collaborator Sergey Aksenov.
According to him, Aksyonov was the first who wrote to the Russian President Putin calling for the introduction of troops to Ukraine, but the Kremlin waited for a more serious political statement from Ukraine and later the Presidential Administration of the Russian Federation received a letter to Putin from Yanukovych.
“I thought it was my duty to help my country and expose the villain ... Yanukovych is a puppet. He signed the abdication himself, and his appeal for bringing the Russian troops was unlawful. First, the Crimean [collaborator - Ed.] Aksyonov wrote this treatment... Later the Kremlin reckoned - who is Aksenov, if Yanukovych is in Russia. And Yanukovych wrote a letter to President of the Russian Federation on the introduction of troops,” the ex-deputy of the State Duma commented.
Previously, two Deputies of the Russian State Duma interrogated in the Prosecutor General's Office of Ukraine confirmed the information that the military intervention of the Russian Federation on the territory of Crimea and further annexation were planned in December 2013, during a visit of Putin adviser Vladislav Surkov to the peninsula.
