On October 19, journalist Lesia Moskalenko was attacked by hardly sober “protesters” under the Ukrainian Parliament, as she writes on Facebook.

The journalist was bringing her child to a school situated not far from the Verkhovna Rada, and she asked the “protesters” to behave, as there were children there.

In response, the leader of this group of “protesters” started filming the journalist, shouting insults at her. Another parent intervened, took the phone from the leader’s hands.

The leader of the “protesters” was urging them to attack the parents, and the only reason this didn’t happen was that they got into the school building in time.

As it was reported earlier, protests near the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine lasted three days, as former Odesa region governor Mikheil Saakashvili gathered his allies together with a number of oppositional politicians. The activists stood for the so-called “big political reform”. 

The protests gathered some 200 people, and weren’t entirely calm, as, on the night of October 17, some of the protesters looted shields belonging to the National Guard.
