Russian soldier kills Ukrainian man in front of son

In Bucha, a city in Ukraine’s Kyiv Oblast, it was reported on March 22 that a Russian soldier shot a father of a large family in front of his son. The boy miraculously survived.

The Russian occupier ruthlessly killed the father of a large family in front of his 14-year-old son. The victim warned he was unarmed, but that did not stop the enemy soldier. The Russian fired precisely in the heart and the head. He didn’t aim to scare the man with shots on his arms or legs, but to kill him immediately. 

The killer stole the dead father’s phone, wallet and even house keys. He also tried to shot the son, but bullets only injured his arms and didn’t reach the head. The family buried their father alone in the backyard. Three children were left with their widowed mother.
