Gun­man kills son, 3, of Ukrainian politi­cian

The National - News - - NEWS | WORLD -

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.
