A Ukrainian politician who was working with the Russian occupation government was found murdered in his home over the weekend.
Oleksiy Kovalev, a former member of Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky’s political party, was found dead in his home near Kherson Sunday with a gunshot wound to the head, the Kyiv Post reported Monday.
His wife was also reportedly stabbed in the neck, and initial reports indicated she succumbed to her wounds.
Kovalev was found beside a shotgun registered in his name.
Kovalev had served in the Russian occupation government in Kherson as the deputy head of the occupation government since July.
