Pro-Russian Mayor in Eastern Ukrainian City of Kreminna Found Shot Dead in the Street After He Was Detained by Officials

The Pro-Russian mayor Vlodymyr Struk was found dead in the street of Kreminna in Luhansk eastern Ukraine after he was reportedly detained a day earlier.

His wife claimed he was taken by unidentified people in camouflage clothing a day earlier.

The Daily Mail reported:

The pro-Russian mayor of a city in eastern Ukraine who welcomed President Vladimir Putin’s invasion was ‘shot dead’ after being kidnapped from his home, it has been announced.

Vlodymyr Struk, of Kreminna in Luhansk, was killed on Tuesday and suffered a ‘gunshot wound to the heart’ after he was ‘abducted from his home’, according to his wife.

Announcing the news on Facebook, the adviser for Interior Minister of Ukraine, Anton Gerashchenko claimed Mr Struk was a ‘Luhansk People’s Republic supporter’ (LPR) and actively pursued a ‘pro-Russian position’ in the last week by ‘communicating with the Russian Federation’.

The adviser for Interior Minister of Ukraine alleged that Mr Struk ‘was judged by the court of the people’s tribunal’ and called him a ‘traitor’.

He also claimed Ukraine has not been able to ‘do anything with Struk for the past eight years’ since Moscow-backed separatists have controlled the southeastern Ukrainian regions of Donetsk and Luhansk – collectively known as Donbas.
