 A Friend of the Party of Regions Local Leader Shot a Man Holding a Baby in His Hands. PHOTOS

According to witnesses, the incident happened around 2 a.m. on the night of August 21 in Sednevka village (Ustinov district of Kirovograd oblast).

According to Kirovograd. Comments, a married couple Igor Lityankov and Inna Nizhyn together with a baby Anna came to Sednevka to celebrate a birthday of their friend.

About 1 a.m. they called a taxi to go back home. When Igor was waiting for a car holding a baby in his arms, the head of the village council Ivan Blazhko came out with a gun and started shouting about loud music during the birthday celebration. In the course of the argument he hit Igor in the face and then hit his leg. To avoid a conflict with the man, still holding his daughter, he headed back to the house when he suddenly felt a strong blow to the back. As it turned out, the head of the village shot his rifle. Upon hearing the shots the other guests ran away and the house owners called the police. When the police was taking a statement they tried to leave empty spaces in the protocol but Igor's wife insisted to cross them out.

Later Igor was taken to the hospital. It is very strange that the weapon used to make the shot was not even confiscated. A deputy of the Ustinov district council Ekaterina Dumcheva talked to the relatives of the victim and noted that they don't believe in fair punishment. Village head Blazhko has powerful relatives: his brother is vice-chairman of Ustinov district council (Strong Ukraine Party) and his nephew is the head of Ustinov Traffic Police.
