An adviser to Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy has said he believes the leading Ukrainian agricultural magnate Oleksiy Vadatursky was deliberately killed.
According to a report from the BBC, Mykhailo Podolyak said one of the missiles hit the businessman’s bedroom, adding that this “leaves no doubt” it was a targeted attack.
Authorities said Vadatursky, 74, and his wife Raisa were killed when a missile struck their home in the southern city of Mykolaiv.
Vadatursky was ranked Ukraine’s 24th richest man with a fortune worth $430m by Forbes, and was previously decorated with the prestigious “Hero of Ukraine” award.
Here are some more photographs from the newswires which show the aftermath of the shelling in Mykolaiv.
