"Attack on Anatolii Hrytsenko: five attackers identified and detained by the National Police. Procedural decisions will be made regarding another 12 individuals. The Ministry of Internal Affairs shall resolutely combat practice that some people are trying to introduce inside Ukrainian society: [making] attempts to disrupt candidates' speeches, committing attacks and provocations against them, discrediting them through authorless and fake reports. Regardless of the politicians’ extent of opposition to the incumbent authorities! Equal rights to political activity for all are the foundation of civilized democracy. Every politician can count that one’s rights and freedoms are ensured and protected," Avakov said.
As reported, about 30 masked persons attacked Hrytsenko and those who came to support him as he was going to have live interview on a local radio in Odesa on Nov. 28.
