An unknown man in Poltava shoved the "Kolo" journalist and editor-in-chief, Tetiana Tsirulnik, and punched her in the face. The incident happened today, May 9, during the flower laying ceremony at the Soldier's Glory Memorial, the "Poltavshchyna" reports.

According to the newspaper, one of the participants of ceremony arrived with a portrait of his father. The journalist, who was present there, said that the action was endorsing the Russian narratives and compared it to the pro-Russian "Immortal Regiment". Another man reacted to the debate very aggressively, first using obscene language to suggest that the journalist "gets away from here". And after the journalist protested, saying that they were in a public place that was open for everyone, the man first forcibly shoved the journalist away from the space in front of the memorial, then punched her in the face.

In the video posted by the author of the Svoboda Slova project, Vitaliy Skobelskyi, shows that Tetiana Tsirulnik was taking a photo when the man pounced on her, saying: "Do you heare me, whore, get out of here!" and started pushing here away, then punched her in the face.

A patrol police team arrived at the scene, then called an investigative team. This put an end to the conflict.

In her comment to the IMI representative in Poltava oblast, Tetiana Tsirulnik said that was about to have an appointment with the police and promised to provide her statement in an hour.
