HAIFA (Israel), April 29. /ITAR-TASS/. Kharkiv mayor Gennady Kernes who has been badly wounded in an assassination attempt “needs no additional surgeries,” ITAR-TASS was told on Tuesday at the private clinic Elisha in Haifa, northern Israel, where Kernes was brought in the early morning hours.

“The examination of the patient who was admitted during the night has shown that all the previous surgeries he underwent were successful,” the Elisha clinic administration told ITAR-TASS. “The patient is currently under the care of doctors and needs no additional surgical interference.”

The clinic has not discloses the name of the Kharkiv mayor under the Israeli rules that prohibit the disclosure of patients’ private data. The administration of the private medical establishment said that it was “the last press statement about the condition of the patient” from Kharkiv.

“Director of the Kharkiv institute of general and emergency surgery Valery Boiko said that living indicators of Gennady Kernes have stabilised that permitted to foretell a favourable airlifting. Israeli doctors will continue to cure the mayor as they have a quite vast experience of treating bullet wounds,” the press service said.

“Specialists are still keeping Gennady Kernes in medication sleep and artificial lung ventilation,” the press service said. The Prosecutor General’s Office permitted to cure the mayor abroad.

The assassination attempt on Kernes was staged on Monday when he was jogging on the Belgorod Highway. The city mayor was shot in the back. The bullet pierced his chest, damaging internal organs. Criminal proceedings have been instituted over the attempt on Kernes.

On Monday, Ukrainian presidency candidate Mikhail Dobkin said the person who made an attempt on the life of Kharkiv Mayor Gennady Kernes, shot to kill him. The attacker was shooting in the heart, said Dobkin, who is a close friend of Kernes, the mayor of a large Russian-speaking eastern Ukrainian city. He said law enforcement officers had found the location from which the attacker had shot, saying a 7.62-mm shell from the Dragunov sniper rifle had been found.

The sniper was aiming not at Kernes, but at Kharkiv,” he said. “He (Kernes) is a strong man… and an attempt was made to liquidate him,” Dobkin added.
