Ukrainian MP Anton Polyakov from the Servant of the People party—and who is the person behind the draft decision two years ago on the recognition of the Armenian Genocide—has died, AnalitikaUA.net reports.
The Kyiv Prosecutor's Office said in a statement that the initial cause of Polyakov's death was acute insufficiency of blood vessels in the heart, and acute ischemic heart disease.
The results of other forensic examinations are expected.
Polyakov was found unconscious in the middle of the night in a taxi which the patrol police had stopped for violating traffic rules. The paramedics who were dispatched to the scene had tried to resuscitate the lawmaker, but could not succeed.
In addition to penning the draft decision on Armenian Genocide recognition, Anton Polyakov was expressing an active position during the Second Karabakh War last fall.
