Ukrainska Pravda reports that Volodymyr Borysenko, an electoral candidate for the People's Front party, has been hospitalised following an attack at his home in Boryspil, in the Kiev region.

The reports cites a Facebook post by the independent MP Mykola Kniazhytsky, who notes that Borysenko had received threats, which he reported to the police.

On his Facebook page, Anton Herashchenko, an adviser to Interior Minister, wrote more on the attack.

Writing at 21:26 GMT, Herashchenko wrote that the assassination attempt had been made about an hour earlier. He writes (translated by The Interpreter):

When he went outside to feed his dog, he was shot at with a firearm, and a home-made explosive device was thrown at his feet.

The bullet was stopped by body armour, which Volodymyr Borysenko had been wearing recently, after receiving telephone threats having a pig's head thrown at him as a form of intimidation.

Borysenko is now hospitalised in a state of traumatic shock. He will live.

Herashchenko said that a criminal investigation under the statute for attempted murder had begun. There has been no announcement yet with regards to the possible perpetrators or motives of the attack.
