A captain in the Russian army, who previously worked as a propagandist, was shot in the head at close range in Ukraine over the weekend, according to reports.
British newspaper The Telegraph reported that Igor Mangushev was taken to a hospital in the town of Stakhanov early Saturday with a “close range” gunshot wound to the head.
According to The New Voice of Ukraine, citing unverified doctors’ reports, Mangushev was shot “execution-stye” at a checkpoint in the Russian-occupied region of Luhansk Oblast.
He survived but is now being treated for the gunshot wound by a neurosurgery department at a hospital in Kaddivka, in eastern Ukraine, the outlet said.
