Militia backed by presidential candidate Lyashko takes credit for assassination of Russian-backed separatist

I’d vote for him!

Paramilitaries from a group organized by presidential candidate Oleh Lyashko stormed a local government building in a sleepy eastern Ukrainian mining city and assassinated a pro-Russian separatist, shooting him in the head and abdomen on May 23. A second man sustained three gunshot wounds to his neck and abdomen and was fighting for his life in a nearby hospital after the attack.

The surprise attack by the Lyashko-backed militia came around 3 p.m., when five armed men stormed the Torez City Hall in Donetsk Oblast. The gunmen immediately headed towards an office on the first floor, where they opened fire on the two men. Both were active supporters of the Kremlin-backed, breakaway Donetsk People’s Republic.
