Photo by / | Amina Okueva, seen here back in June of this year, was killed in an assassination in Ukraine today. She first gained notoriety for fighting in the war in eastern Ukraine for a pro-Ukrainian Chechen battalion alongside her husband Adam Osmaev - who was once accused by Russia of organizing an assassination attempt on Vladimir Putin, and for which he was jailed in Ukraine for a time. An assassination attempt earlier this year made the news when Okueva turned the tables, pulling out her own gun and wounding the would-be killer. She was unharmed, while her husband was lightly injured. He also survived today’s shooting, though he’s been wounded again; Okueva was shot in the head.

vitarosc : I was a volunteer in June in a little town near Chernobyl, and I felt that Ukraine was standing alone, so sad to hear that the situation will continue to go on and on, without any further changes. I miss Ukraine and the strong people wearing their vishivankas to work, like a silent act of massive discontent.
