The main orderer of the attempt on Minister Leshchenko’s life was an American citizen

He wanted to kill Roman Leshchenko even before he became the Minister of Agrarian Policy. The reason for the assassination was property claims. This was stated by Interior Minister Denys Monastyrskiy at a briefing in the evening of November 18, reports ProAgro Group with reference to Censor.net.

According to the minister, in August, the Department of Strategic Investigations received information that a citizen of Ukraine was looking for a hitman to kill another citizen of Ukraine. The police had information that the main orderer of the murder was an American citizen who had property claims against Roman Leshchenko.

Roman Leshchenko became the head of the Ministry of Agrarian Policy and Food in December 2020. Before that he was the chairman of the State Service of Ukraine for Geodesy, Cartography and Cadastre. Monastyrskiy noted that the murder was being prepared since 2018, even before Leshchenko started working in public service.

According to the press service of the Ministry of Agrarian Policy, Roman Leshchenko was the only minister who was guarded by the Department of state security. This protection was provided to him by the president, because threats were repeatedly made against the minister.
