Pro-Russian populist. Early reports are he was shot in the head, chest, and limbs and is being flown to a nearer hospital than the capital because his injuries are life-threatening and he wouldn't survive the helicopter ride.

Too early to tell motivations obviously, but the flames continue to spread. The West really, really needs to wake up and realize this war isn't just about the future of Ukraine.
Unfortunately, there are those who would rather close the borders and stick their collective heads in the sand. That will just get a whole lot more people killed than is necessary.
