"The newly elected Mayor of Konotop Oleksandr Luhovy passed away. It’s terrible news and a great loss. He won the elections and fought desperately for life with an insidious disease. It seemed that the worst was over, but it was not,” Molotok wrote.
A little more than two weeks ago, Mayor of Novhorod-Siversky Oleh Bondarenko died from the virus, and the day before that, Boryspil Mayor and the front-runner of the election race Anatoly Fedorchuk also died.
