In Zhytomyr, young thugs assaulted the editor-in-chief of the newspaper "20 Khvylyn"

27.11.2013, 11:17

On November 23, in Zhytomyr unidentified young thugs assaulted the editor-in-chief of the local media outlet "20 Khvylyn" Vlad Puchych. He informed about this on his Facebook page. According to him, the assault took place on 11.50 pm.

He was coming home when he got attacked by two athletically built men dressed in trekking suits. They followed him in the entrance hall, knocked him off his feet and kicked him in the ribs. When they left he crawled home and called the police.

He is not sure whether the attack was caused by his journalist activities or by his civil activism. About every month, his newspaper publishes anti-corruption exposes that go against the interests of a lot of influential people. But on the other hand, he is one of the organizers of the EuroMaidan in Zhytomyr, besides doing a lot of activism work.
