According to Chornovil, it happened when she was coming out of an elevator in Lviv. "I entered the building where I live, got into an elevator. It came to 6th floor, the doors started opening and I got splashed with a bucket of green paint. I tried to detain the assailant but I did not manage. I was wearing shoes on heels and by the time I took them off he ran away," said Chornovil, "I am all green! From top to toe."
The journalist said that after the incident she called the police and they are working right now. The neigbors claim that the guy had been waiting for her for the past three days. "The neighbors say they saw this guy with a bucket near the elevator," said Chornovil. She also said that somebody placed an ad offering sex services with her phone number and in the morning somebody slashed the tires of her car. Chornovil suspects that the provocation could have been done by her local opponents as well as the central level politicians.
"It can be local, my competitor has started to get nervous already or may be it is a central level. Some kind of revenge for Mezhygorye," she says. The journalist is known for her recent breakthrouhg into the President's residence.
