Jimmy Hill, American Killed in Ukraine, 'Gunned Down' in Bread Line: Family

Source: Newsweek

Jimmy Hill, an American born in Minnesota, was killed in Ukraine while waiting in line for bread, his family wrote in a Facebook post on Thursday.

Anton Gerashchenko, the adviser to the Minister of Internal Affairs of Ukraine, confirmed on Telegram that Hill, 67, was killed in Chernihiv Wednesday. The city, about 80 miles from Kyiv, has been suffering "heavy artillery" attacks from Russian forces and Ukrainian police wrote on Facebook that several United States citizens have died there.

Cheryl Hill Gordon, Hill's sister, posted about her brother's death on Facebook. "He was waiting in a bread line with several other people when they were gunned down by Russian military snipers," Gordon wrote. "His body was found in the street by the local police."

According to Gordon, Hill was staying in Ukraine with a friend, mentioned as Ira, who was "severely ill," and had been stranded in a hospital with her when the war began on February 24.

2. This is MURDER by Russian troops. This is not a war--just plain murder of civilians. Period!

4. Remember all those "God Bless Our Snipers" bumperstickers that were popular during the Iraq

occupation?

Wonder how they feel about snipers now...

5. America loves snipers and makes movies to celebrate them

on the assumption that whoever they kill must be deserving it.

7. The sniper is not the problem...

...nor is the crew of the rocket launcher that shells the civilian apartment building. The real problem is the chain of command above them. Potentially the training and selection of service persons for these roles may also be the real problem. I especially think so in this case.

US service personnel receive training regarding illegal orders. I'm not sure about any others.

6. Ukrainian mayors have pointed out these residential areas to American press

saying BS. Where is the military target? Is this a military target?

It's quite obvious that Russia is terrorizing unarmed civilians in residential areas.
