The public figure said she did not know who planned the attack on her and the other public activists in Ukraine.
‘Who ordered all these people? Who covers them? Why so many investigations are being sabotaged? Why do we need to tolerate it, while the most active of us are killed or maimed?’ she asked.
She recalled that 40 attacks on activists were performed over the year, and none of the clients were named.
