Voronenkov fled to Ukraine previous year and was helping the Ukrainian authorities build a treason case against former leader Viktor Yanukovich, Ukraine's pro-Russian former president. Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko released a statement saying, "The underhand murder of Denys Voronenkov in the center of Kyiv is an act of state terrorism by Russian Federation, which Denys Voronenkov was forced to leave for political reasons".

But Voronenkov is only the latest critic of Putin to be mysteriously murdered.

Voronenkov left Russian Federation after losing his seat in the State Duma at last October's parliamentary elections.

Voronenkov was on his way to meet with another exiled Russian lawmaker, Ilya Ponomarev, when he was shot.

Kiev "will do its best to make sure that no one will ever know the truth about what happened", Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said.

Less than an hour after the killing, Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko called it "an act of Russian state-funded terrorism", according to his press secretary.

To add to the number of people killed for criticizing Russian President Vladimir Putin and government, another Kremlin critic and former Russian lawmaker's death Thursday, has left everyone shocked.

"It is a matter of honor for Ukrainian law enforcment organs" to solve Voronenkov's killing, as well as the July 2016 killing of journalist Pavel Sheremet, Poroshenko said.

Russian Federation critics point to various cases which they say raise suspicion about the Kremlin. "I will talk about criminal deeds of the former president, which led to the ongoing bloodshed in Donetsk and Luhansk regions", he said.

The injured bodyguard then pulls out his gun and, while lying on the floor, opens fire on the killer, who died later in hospital.

The investigators probing Voronenkov's murder made significant progress on Thursday, Gerashchenko said.

Voronenkov had also spoken out against Russia's annexation of Crimea in March 2014, although he voted for the move at the time. Still, it's too early to say that express cash transfers are now a thing of the past: foreign wiring systems may yet decide to be registered in Russian Federation.

Russian Federation called the allegation "absurd".
