A Ukrainian opposition politician, Oleg Kalashnikov, has been found dead with gunshot wounds in Kiev - the latest ally of the former government to have died in suspicious circumstances
Via the BBC:
Mr Kalashnikov had been involved in the "anti-Maidan" protests in support of deposed President Viktor Yanukovych.
It is not clear if he was murdered or committed suicide. Police say an investigation has been launched.
At least eight Yanukovych allies have died suddenly in the last three months.
The BBC's David Stern in Kiev says no motive has emerged linking the deaths and no arrests have been made.
Mr Kalashnikov was a former deputy in parliament and a member of Mr Yanukovych's Party of Regions.
Glory to Ukraine?
