Two gunshot wounds took the life of Vitaliy Oleshko, the former volunteer fighter of Donbas battalion and the active participant in Donbas conflict.
A gunfire attack occurred in the southeastern city of Berdiansk on Tuesday. Oleshko was shot dead in the yard of a local hotel, in front of his wife.
A witness who later uploaded a video on his social network account confirmed that the man sustained two wounds to his back; the killer used a shotgun.
The shooter escaped immediately after the attack; Olga Atamanova, the director of the PR department of the National Police of Ukraine reported that on Facebook.
Given the information from his Facebook account, the victim was not only the fighter of government troops in Donbas, but also the civil activist who rallied a campaign against local corrupt politicians.
The law enforcers in Donetsk and Zaporizhia regions take measures to identify and find the murderer.
