Jewish Mayor of City in Ukraine Shot in the Back

JewishPress Logo

The mayor of Ukraine’s second largest city was shot in the back Monday and was rushed to a hospital where he is “fighting for his life,” a Kharkov City Council stated on its website. Different sources reported that the mayor was swimming, cycling or jogging when he was shot from a nearby forest.

Kharkov has been relatively unaffected by the turmoil in the country since the Russian takeover of Crimea. The mayor, Gennady Kernes, was a former supported of ousted Ukrainian president Viktor Yanukovych.
