    The body of a member of the Ukrainian parliament was found Saturday in his office, police said.

    The body of 47-year-old Valeriy Davydenko was found by a cleaner in the restroom of his office. He had a gunshot wound and there was a pistol near him.

    The preliminary investigation suggests he committed suicide, said Zoryan Shkiryak, an Interior Ministry official.

    Davydenko, a former deputy agriculture minister, ran for parliament as an independent. In the previous parliament, he was a member of President Petro Poroshenko’s party.
