According to his relatives, an American man was slain this week in Ukraine while standing in a bread line for food in the northern city of Chernihiv.

American Killed While Standing in the Bread Line
According to his family, an American man was killed this week in Ukraine. He was waiting in a bread line for food in the northern city of Chernihiv.
Jim Hill of Idaho, who’d been residing in Kyiv, travelled two hours north to Chernihiv to visit the doctor with his partner. Sadly, the partner suffers from multiple sclerosis. And, this is according to the family, who spoke to NBC affiliate KARE in Minneapolis on Thursday.
Cheryl Hill Gordon, Hill’s sister, said on Facebook on Thursday, “My brother Jimmy Hill was killed yesterday in Chernihiv, Ukraine. He and many other individuals were waiting in a bread line when they were shot dead by Russian military snipers. The local police discovered his remains in the street.”
More People Dying in The Russia-Ukraine War
Not less than 53 civilians were killed by Russian bombs and shells in Chernihiv on Wednesday, according to Ukraine’s UN ambassador, Sergiy Kyslytsya, who spoke at a U.N. Security Council meeting on Thursday.
Russian Ambassador Vasily Nebenzya denied during the meeting that Russian forces targeted a bread line in Chernihiv. He also denied reports that Russia had launched two airstrikes against civilian targets. A maternity hospital and a theatre where civilians were seeking refuge in Mariupol were also targeted.
“There are no Russian military in Chernihiv. I think this is the consequence of just distributing weapons to whoever wants to have them in Ukraine,” said the Ambassador.
Raouf Mazou, the UNHCR’s Assistant High Commissioner for Operations, agreed that the number of people leaving Ukraine into neighbouring countries had increased from 520,000 to over 3.1 million in less than three weeks. He labelled the crisis as Europe’s fastest-growing refugee catastrophe since World War II.
“We are humbled by the remarkable resilience of the refugees, many of whom have left their homes with nothing but a plastic bag, and by the extraordinary hospitality of the host authorities and host communities,” said Mr Mazou.

Oil prices rose $2 on Monday as Ukrainian soldiers defended themselves against strong Russian bombardment, while major oil companies revealed that they are failing to meet their quotas under a supply deal. Ukraine says it has no intention of abandoning Mariupol after Russia called on Ukrainian soldiers in the beleaguered port city to lay down their guns.
