In Kherson, two carriers beat up a volunteer who was taking people out of flooded areas for free. The identity of the attackers has already been established by law enforcers.
This was reported by the head of the Kherson regional military administration Olexander Prokudin. Now law enforcement agencies are working with them. A criminal case under part two of article 296 (hooliganism) has been opened (to see the video, scroll to the end of the page).
"Yesterday they beat up a well-known volunteer who was transporting people from dangerous territories in Kherson region for free. They beat him sneakily, two of them, until he fell down and kept kicking him. The attackers have already been identified," he said.
The perpetrators turned out to be men making money from passenger transportation, who took advantage of the grief that had befallen people during the Russian aggression.
The head of the regional military administration appealed to the residents of Kherson region not to pay money to those who profited from their misfortune. He reminded them that evacuations are free of charge.
The Deputy Prime Minister - Minister for the reintegration of the temporarily occupied territories of Ukraine Iryna Vereshchuk has already reacted to the beating of the volunteer.
"Rascals beat up a Kherson volunteer for evacuating people for free, because it prevented them from profiting. I hope that the volunteer will be okay and that the attackers will be punished according to the law. So, what's the problem? Someone thinks it's okay to profit from trouble. What's more, someone thinks they can also beat up those who evacuate people for free. Is that normal? When there is a war, when there is a man-made disaster? Of course, absolutely abnormal", - said Vereshchuk.
She believes that the state must show that it is stronger than those two scoundrels.
"I appeal to the Kherson power block. I know that you are able to bring order quickly. If you and I said that evacuation is free for people, then it's free. If someone out there doesn't agree, then explain it to them in a way that they understand. People need to see that power is power!" - emphasized the official.
