Gunman kills son, 3, of Ukrainian politician
Unknown gunmen fired at the car of a local politician in the centre of the Ukrainian capital of Kiev on Sunday, killing his three-year-old son, a police source said. Vyacheslav Sobolev, a businessman and Kiev regional council politician, was driving the car when it was attacked, said the source. “As a result of a gunshot wound, a child died in an ambulance on the way to hospital,” Ukraine’s Ministry of Internal Affairs said on Facebook. Mr Sobolev is a businessman from Donetsk, a flashpoint of the pro-Russian insurgency in Ukraine. In 2010 to 2011, he was an executive at Ukraine’s state energy company Naftogaz.
