Ukrainian Mayor Shot While Jogging

Hennadiy Kernes, the mayor of the eastern Ukraine city of Kharkiv, was shot by unknown gunmen while he was out jogging. He is in critical condition and “fighting for his life,” according to the mayor's office. While Kernes formerly supported pro-Moscow President Viktor Yanukovych, he had recently changed his mind, saying that he wanted to see a united Ukraine. Kharkiv is one of the cities in Ukraine where pro-Russian separatists have seized control of government buildings or staged protests.
