Grenade Birthday Gift Kills Ukraine Army Chief

A close adviser to the commander-in-chief of the Ukrainian army, Major Hennadiy Chastyakov, lost his life on his birthday after a hidden grenade among his birthday gifts exploded. The tragic event took place as Major Chastyakov, 39, returned to his apartment with presents from his colleagues and began opening them with his 13-year-old son. Initial reports suggested that the major’s son had inadvertently started turning the ring on the grenade, but Ukraine’s Interior Minister, Igor Klymenko, clarified the sequence of events, stating that Major Chastyakov had taken the grenade away from his child and accidentally triggered the explosive device, leading to the tragic explosion.
