KIEV, December 26. /TASS/. The house of the mayor of Lvov in western Ukraine came under gunfire on Friday evening, the ZAXID.NET internet portal reported.
The incident took place at 21:45 Moscow time. According to preliminary information, no one was hurt. The mayor, Andrei Sadovy, and his family are currently vacationing at the Bukovel ski resort in the Carpathians. Unidentified attackers broke the windows and the door and partically damaged one wall.
This is the second such attack on Sadovy’s house in the past six months. In late July, the house was shelled from a grenade launcher when the Sadovy family was not in. The crime has not yet been solved despite the fact that President Pyotr Poroshenko and head of the Ukrainian Security Council Nalivaichenko promised to take the investigation under their personal control.
“It is beyond common sense,” Sadovy told the internet portal after the attack. “Such thing was quite expectable bearing in mind that the previous crime has not been solved.”
An investigation is underway.
