The occupiers had appointed a former member of the “Sluha narod” (“Servant of the People”) party to the position of deputy head of the puppet administration of Kherson region.
Kovalev was attacked at his residence in Hola Pristan, and died of gunshot wounds, the Investigative Committee of Russia said.
Serhiy Khlan, adviser to the head of the military administration of the Kherson region of Ukraine, also reported on Kovalev’s death.
Kovalyov’s girlfriend was also injured in the attack, and she later died in resuscitation.
The party “Sluha narod” had suspended Kovalyov’s membership in the party and faction some time ago, because he cooperated with the occupiers in Kherson region. Kovalyov was expelled from the faction on May 3.
In Ukraine, a criminal case against Kovalev was initiated in April, while in July the occupiers appointed the collaborator to the post of deputy head of the administration of Kherson region.
He was wanted in Ukraine.
