Commenting article: Tymoshenko Killed Ukrainian MP over Gas Feud – Prosecutor

The 1996 killing of Ukrainian businessman and lawmaker Yevhen Shcherban was caused by a conflict of interests in the country's natural gas market, Ukraine's Prosecutor General's Office said on Tuesday.

Shcherban, a Supreme Rada lawmaker who also headed Ukraine's Aton financial corporation, was shot dead along with his wife at an airport in eastern Ukraine in November 1996.

On Friday, Prosecutor General Viktor Pshonka said the killing was ordered by jailed former Ukrainian Prime Minister Yulia Tymoshenko and another former premier, Pavlo Lazarenko.
