Voice of America journalist Khrystyna Shevchenko was attacked during the shooting of news footage on protests in the United States. She announced this on her Facebook page.

"I was filming, as activists/robbers broke into the store. No one touched me for about 10 minutes. And then my eyes went blank from a punch. I was blacking out for a few seconds and then I fell. The tripod with the camera also fell on my foot," the journalist told.

At the hospital, Shevchenko was diagnosed with a fracture of two toes and a minor head injury. She later hid her post due to a number of negative comments.

As we reported earlier, the death of the 46-year-old African American George Floyd caused demonstrations and protests against racism and police brutality across the USA and the world.

President of the United States Donald Trump was hidden in an underground bunker in central Washington during one of the protests.

"Hundreds of protesters gathered outside the gates, shouting curses at President Trump, and in some cases threw bricks and bottles. Concerned about his safety, secret service agents placed the president in an underground bunker that was used in the past during terrorist attacks," the statement reads.
