On June 22, in Kyiv a group of unidentified men of athletic build attacked the filming crew of the journalist investigations project “Zhytlobud”, which is aired on the TV channel ZIK. This was reported on the ZIK website.

In the course of preparing a scheduled episode of the program, the filming crew arrived to the location of the notorious development on Michurina Street, 44. There, an unidentified man of athletic build grabbed journalist Anna Zakutska by the arm and rudely pushed out of the building. The attacker said she attacked him first.

“You are encroaching on private property, we will have to take action”, the man expressed his indignation and then added that the journalists were engaging in provocations.

When the filming crew was getting into their car, the attacker together with another athletic-looking man tried to smash their cameras and pushed at the car doors.

Anna called the police and filed a complaint.

“It was the first time we had such a welcome”, concluded the frightened Zakutska.
