The aide of a senior advisor to Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky was gunned down on Wednesday in what appears to have been a botched assassination attempt.

As The Daily Caller reports:

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky was reportedly targeted in an assassination attempt. Shefir escaped the attack unscathed, but his driver was wounded and was hospitalized after a volley of bullets hit the car near the village of Lisnyky, NBC News reported.

A local television station reported that the car had appeared to have been struck at least 19 times, according to the outlet.

“It is obvious that this open, deliberate and extremely brutal attack with the use of automatic weapons cannot be qualified other than an attempt to demonstratively kill a key member of the team,” Mykhailo Podolyak, a top Ukrainian presidential advisor said, according to CNN.

“All I can say for my part is that the attempt was made to intimidate the highest echelons of power. But our President is strong-willed, you don’t intimidate him with anything. He chose the right path and is going his own way. The public is supporting him,” Shefir said, according to CNN

Zelensky was elected after running on an anti-corruption platform. It is currently unknown what party may have been responsible for the assassination attempt.

I’m betting on a botched Clinton contract.
