Assailant Jumps on Ex-Ukraine President Car After He Leaves Questioning
A man jumped on the car of former Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko as he was driven away from being questioned Thursday, July 25, as a witness over the sale of his shipbuilding plant to another businessman.
TV footage also showed the man spraying gas into the face of one of Poroshenko’s bodyguards who had rushed to intervene. No one was hurt.
Poroshenko spokesman Svyatoslav Tsegolko called it a “provocation by the pro-Russian gangsters who raised their heads after the change of power in Ukraine,” in a text message. (Reuters)
