The parliamentary Temporary Investigation Committee (TIC) for looking into the attacks at the public activists, particularly Kateryna Handziuk, made a decision to hold a retreat in Kherson on November 29-30, as 112 Ukraine reported.
“The decision is made by a majority of votes. We go to Kherson to work there on November 29-30,” TIC Head Boryslav Bereza explained.
