Yesterday’s American citizen who was killed in Ukraine has been identified as Jimmy Hill. He is a 67 year-old Idahoan. Jimmy Hill had gone to Ukraine to care for a friend in need and was shot down while trying to get bread.

Jimmy Hill (67-year old American citizen from Idaho) was the victim of yesterday’s attack in Ukraine. This was Jimmy Hill. Hill is an Idahoan who had been in warzone as a caretaker for a friend with a serious illness and was then gunned down in line to purchase bread. 

Hill’s family renamed him via Facebook after Antony Blinken, Secretary of State of the United States confirmed that he had died on Thursday. 

Hill, a Kyiv lecturer, was actually in Chernihiv caring for Ira.

When Russian troops fired in an act of war, it was Monday. He was part of a group that waited to get bread at the grocery store.

Hill was a Facebook user from Chernihiv up to his death. His posts included jokes and pictures of himself unhaven. 

On March 7, he posted: “The past two night very limited rocket fire during that night. It is possible to go to sleep. Food is available. Yesterday, I was at the market and purchased food for our kitchen staff… shooting began about two hours ago. We’d like to break free of this place. 

“We hope for ceasefire and green corridor. After years of searching for the right drug to slow her progression, it would be sad to have to travel this far and return home empty handed. It is essential that we have rituximab and something like it. Ira won’t be able survive without it. 

He posted for several weeks about sleeping in bomb shelters at night while trying to get treatment for Ira. 

Hill encouraged American family and friends to press US legislators for expediting visas.

In February, President Biden stated that he would respond severely to any attacks by Putin on US citizens. However, he has yet to alter his tactics. 

Tomorrow, the President will meet with Xi Jinping from China to discuss possible sanctions if Russia aids in fighting war. 

Yesterday’s speech by Volodymyr Zelensky, Ukrainian President, was inspired by Martin Luther King. He delivered it from his Kyiv bunker. 

Biden begged him to “be the leader for peace” and said that the 22-day period had been the ‘9/11’ of his country. 

“I’m addressing President Biden. Your great nation is led by you. 

“I want you to be the leader in the world.” He stated that to be the leader for the world, one must also be the leader for peace in his sobering address addressed to Congress. 

Biden spoke afterwards and announced a $800million package of military aid.  On Wednesday, Biden called Russian President Vladimir Putin “a war criminal” for the first-time.

Biden told reporters at the White House that he believes he was a war crime.
