A Ukrainian military pilot accused by Russia of shooting down a Malaysian Airlines plane in 2014 killed himself in his home Sunday, authorities said.
Vladyslav Voloshyn, 29, was in his Mykolaiv apartment when he fatally shot himself with a pistol that had no license number, Ukrainian police said.
His wife heard a gunshot coming from his room and then called the police. Medics arrived at the home and transported Voloshyn to a hospital where he later died, according to cops.
Police described his death as a “suicide,” but it’s being investigated under the “premeditated murder” section of the Ukrainian penal code, according to the BBC.

His family told authorities he was recently in a depression state. The gun cops recovered is being examined.
Voloshyn was in charge of Mykolaiv airport after resigning from the air force. He used to fly combat missions against Russian-backed rebels and was considered a war hero in Ukraine, the BBC reported.
Russia alleged Voloshyn was involved in the downing of Malaysia Airlines flight MH17 on July 17, 2014 — an accusation he called a lie.
