In Odessa, a cameraman for Channel 7 Andriy Kulba got pepper spray jet diffused in his eyes, as he was shooting a story about a family row, as Channel 7's website reported.

The incident occurred on September 30 on Panas Mirny Street in Odessa. The TV crew came to film a report about a family conflict, involving a man who holds by force the seven-year-old son, as the mother of the boy told.
