A woman who witnessed the event spoke about the attack. She explained that she had witnessed an attack on a Ukrainian. It happened in the middle of the day in the very center of the city.
"Seven guys threw bottles at the Ukrainian. They behaved scandalously, vulgarly, so we were afraid to pass by. Our dear police made three rounds and went on," the woman said.
According to local police, the incident took place on 8 August. Then a group of aggressive-minded people pestered all passers-by and pursued the Ukrainian.
As we reported earlier, Olympic champion, MP from Servant of the People party Zhan Beleniuk thanked for the words of support after the racist attack in the center of Kyiv.
"Thanks to everyone who writes words of support, received hundreds of calls, but no longer have the strength to comment on something. Everything is OK with me! I want to rest! .. I love my country, it gave me everything I have, and no one will force me to leave, and inadequacies exist absolutely everywhere! It's just that sometimes they happen on our way," the athlete wrote.
