Fugitive ex-MP Illya Kyva was served with a notice of suspicion of war propaganda and violent change of the constitutional order (Article 436 and Part 3 of Article 109 of the Criminal Code of Ukraine), reports the Prosecutor General’s Office.
According to the investigation, in January-February 2022, the former MP published materials on his Telegram channel with public calls for an aggressive war in Ukraine and a change in the constitutional order established in the country due to the war.
According to the expert opinion, his statements are propagandistic, form pro-Russian and anti-Ukrainian sentiments in society and contain signs of information influence aimed at undermining Ukrainian statehood.
The suspect is currently hiding from justice in the territory of the aggressor state.
Before Russia's full-scale invasion of Ukraine, in January 2022, Kyva fled to Spain. In March 2022, he was suspected of high treason and was deprived of his parliamentary mandate by the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine.
In October 2022, the Security Service of Ukraine neutralised a criminal group in Kyiv, led by traitorous MP Kyva. Previously, they were involved in the so-called physical support and protection of public speeches of pro-Kremlin party representatives, primarily in the center of the capital.
