On In Ukraine, 49-year-old ex-governor of the Kherson region Gennady Laguta committed suicide. Deputy of the Kherson Regional Council from the Eurosolidarity party Sergei Khlan reported this on social networks.
Laguta died in one of the hospitals in Kyiv on the night of September 17. Khlan claims that he was allegedly driven to suicide by accusations of “surrender of Kherson.”
“He was accused of surrendering the Kherson region, although in his duties there is not a word about preparing for defense,” Khlan wrote.
According to him, the authorities simply wanted to “blame someone” for the loss of the South, “to throw someone to the crowd.” He also said that Laguta was involved in the evacuation, removal of documents and blocking of electronic keys, while the office of the President of Ukraine did not answer the governor’s calls for three days after the start of the conflict with Russia.
