Kharkiv mayor Gennady Kernes shot in the back, remains in the hospital
Kharkiv Mayor Gennady Kernes was shot in the back on April 28 and is in serious condition, the press service of the Kharkiv city council reported on its website.
"The Kharkiv mayor received a gunshot wound in the back. Now he is in the hospital emergency room on the operating table. Doctors are fighting for his life," reads the statement.
Kernes was an avid supporter of former President Viktor Yanukovych and spoke out against the EuroMaidan Revolution that forced the ex-head of state to flee the country. Since then, Kernes has flip-flopped under pressure from EuroMaidan activists and the new Kyiv government in order to remain in office.

Today someone shot Kernes. Akhmetov or any other local oligarch may become a target tomorrow. This is why it is vital for the rich and powerful of the Eastern Ukraine to finally realize that their physical survival depends on elimination of separatists in the Ukraine.
Сьогодні стріляли в Кернеса, завтра зможуть зробити те ж саме з Ахметовим, чи іншими місцевими олігархами. Саме тому еліті східних регіонів варто зрозуміти, що очищення України від сепаратистів - це питання їх фізичного виживання!
Someone else got the Ukraine message translated, maybe someone on FR can take a turn:
"Today shot at Kernes, tomorrow will do the same with Akhmetov, or other local oligarchs. That is why the elite eastern regions should understand that Ukraine cleaning of separatists - the matter of physical survival!"
