The contractors and perpetrators of the attack on Ukrainian public activist Kateryna Handziuk must be punished. Johannes Hahn, the EU Commissioner for Neighborhood Policy said this during his visit in Kyiv on Friday. The diplomat arrived in Kyiv for the talks with the lawyer of the deceased activist and her colleagues.

As is known, Kateryna Handziuk, the activist and the counselor of Kherson mayor passed away on  November 4. The cause of death was the multi-organ failure that she suffered after the attack this summer. On July 31, a man poured some sulfuric acid on her, which led to heavy burns. The injuries eventually led to the vital organs’ shutdown.
