On March 4th, Ukraine's interior minister Yuri Kravchenko was found dead of two
gunshots to the head. Ukrainian Security Service chief
Oleksander Turchynov told reporters today that "There is no other version but suicide". Kravchenko's death occurred just hours before he was
scheduled to testify on the murder of journalist Georgiy Gongadze in 2000. He left a suicide note blaming the murder on former President Leonid
Ukraine's security service chief has said the death of former Interior Minister Yuri Kravchenko last month was almost certainly suicide.
Kravchenko was found dead with two gunshot wounds to the head on 4 March in his country house outside Kiev.
Kravchenko left a suicide note blaming former President Leonid Kuchma for Gongadze's death, Ukraine's investigators say. They say in the note he
described himself as "a victim of the intrigues of Kuchma and his entourage".

While the official story isn't completely absurd, I am somewhat surprised that he managed to shoot himself twice in the head. That makes me wonder,
did he kill himself because he was about to confess to involvement, or was he killed because he was about to deny it? The testimony in the note is
sure to play an important role in this case which Victor Yuschenko has promised to solve. What if the note was planted to say something that they
desperately needed Kravchenko to say?
