A senior military intelligence officer was killed by a car bomb early on June 27 in Kyiv, and one passerby was wounded by shrapnel from the blast. Police say they are investigating the case as a terrorist attack.
The killed officer was a military intelligence colonel, Maksym Shapoval, who was head of special forces at the Chief Military Intelligence Office.
The colonel was driving a Mercedes car in the western part of Kyiv on the morning of June 27. As the car was passing the intersection of Solomianska and Mechanizatoriv Streets at 8:15 a.m., it blew up.
