Israeli man shot dead as convoy escaping Kyiv comes under mistaken Ukrainian fire
Israeli media reported that Roman Brodsky, who had been living in Ukraine for the past few years, was fired upon at a roadblock 95km (59 miles) south of Kiev, as he was trying to escape by car to Moldova. The man was described as a father of two and a DJ.
The Haaretz newspaper said the Ukrainians had apparently mistaken Brodsky for someone else. Several outlets reported that he was killed by soldiers, while others said he was shot by militia members. Ukraine has been actively arming civilians and prisoners, urging them to stay on the lookout for groups of “Russian saboteurs” infiltrating cities.
“They thought he was Chechen or something and killed him,” the man’s father was quoted as saying.
