For a month and a half Vsevolod Novokhatko, editor of ZOV web-based edition in Dnipro, had been waiting for an extract from the Unified Register of Pre-Trial Investigations about his complaint of inaction of the police failing to investigate attack against him. He told it the IMI representative in Dnipropetrovsk region.

According to Vsevolod Novokhatko, on February 13, 2020, he complained about inaction of the police to the Prosecutor's Office of Dnipropetrovsk region, saying the law enforcers failed to investigate the attack on him.

He added that trying to obtain this extract, he had to seize the court, complaining of inaction of the prosecutor's office of the Dnipropetrovsk region, to file a motion with the prosecutor's office asking to provide him with an extract and to file a complaint about crime committed by prosecutor. His complaint was examined for two weeks.

"Only after that, on March 19, 2020, the same prosecutor Yu. Kozakevich finally said to believe that he had received a complaint about the crime," Vsevolod Novohatko said.

As IMI reported, on May 24, 2018 in Dnipro, a group of youths attacked the public activist and editor of the Law of Laws (“Law One for All”) by Vsevolod Novokhatko.
