As we reported earlier, a hand grenade was thrown in the window of the place of the Assistant of MP Igor Lutsenko Serhiy Mazur. Serhiy’s wife, son, and 61-year-old father were at home when the grenade exploded. The police qualified the incident, as an attempted murder. Mazur, who is the assistant to far-right MP Lutsenko, is a well-known far-right activist. Specifically, he is a suspect in pogroms against Roma settlement in Kyiv. As reported, the effective pogrom and burning of the camp took place on 20-21 April (dedicated to Adolf Hitler's birthday), with Mazur describing it in detail on his Facebook page.  In July 2018, Mazur has received a two-month suspended sentence.
