According to Pylypenko, the injured veteran said that he was beaten by five people at groin and head. However, Vasyl had time to tuck. Besides, the unknown people have beaten the veteran at the body and as a result, the special girdle for the spine was torn up.
“Disgusting that someone disclosed his residential address. Obviously, someone from the place of work, where Vasyl faced a silent boycott from the colleagues after his coming out,” Pylypenko noted.
Earlier 41-year-old Donbas veteran Vasyl Davydenko stated that he is gay during BBC interview. He became the second person in the history of Ukrainian Army who disclosed his sexual orientation. Viktor Pylypenko, ex-fighter of Donbas battalion was the first to do it.
