“In Zaporizhia, police are searching for a man who shot a local official […] She said on Facebook: “He died from his wounds.”

According to the police, who opened a murder investigation, the attacker opened fire on this official in front of a residential building.

Zaporizhia is located about twenty kilometers from the front line.

There have been several assassinations of Russian-appointed officials in the occupied regions of Ukraine over the past two years, which Moscow blamed on the Ukrainian security services.

Attacks targeting Ukrainian officials in Kiev-controlled areas are rare, but Ukraine has claimed to have foiled several assassination attempts against President Volodymyr Zelensky, other senior officials or their relatives.
