A knife attack on a Roma community member occurred in Berehove, Zakarpattya region, westernmost Ukraine. The local media reported that on late Sunday.
'A wounded woman escaped from the attackers, approached a house of a local resident and passed away there', the message said.
The 30-year-old woman was found unconscious on the street in Berehove, with a knife wound on her neck; the local Roma community says she was killed by 'a stranger'.
The local police are investigating the incident. The police press service says that no motives based on ethnicity or gender were found; however, the tragedy is officially defined as the homicide.
As is known, the Council of Europe, an international organization that aims to uphold human rights, democracy and the rule of law, estimates that there are some 260,000 Roma in Ukraine out of a population of about 48.5 million.
As it was reported earlier, the Council of Europe condemned the attack on the Roma camp near Lviv, as a result of which one person was killed and 4 others were injured.
