Yanukovych Associate in Critical Condition after Accidental Shooting

MP Yevhen Kushnaryuov, PRU, is struggling for his life, Ukraine’s leading news agencies report. Kushnaryov was rushed into a nearby hospital, having sustained multiple gunshot wounds Cheney-style while hunting in Kharkivska Oblast, where he had served as Governor and President of the Oblast Council. While in the emergency room, he suffered kidney failure due to a preexisting heart condition.

Opponents of Kushnaryov have accused him of treason and sedition. In early 2005, the Office of the Prosecutor General subpoenaed Mr. Kushnaryov for his role in the counter-Orange Revolution separatist demarche in Severodonetsk. However, no charges were pressed against him.
