The men were driving around the city in a car. 42-year-old Valeriy, being very drunk, asked his friend, 28-year-old Serhiy to stop the car so he could buy cigarettes. For some reason he took a metal chain with him, reports048.ua.

At that time three young women were passing by. Serhiy got out of the car, too. He and Valeriy started calling names, attacking them and when the girls started to run away they ran after them.

The girls called their friends and when they came they jumped in their car and locked the doors. The drunk men started attacking the car swinging the chain and waving a traumatic gun.

Officers of the special police unit Berkut came and detained the men. The strike with the chain was fatal - the woman was hospitalized and lost the child.

At first the court ruled to keep them in jail for 10 days but later they were released on recognizance not to leave the city.

It informed that a criminal case was opened in accordance with part 4, article 296 of the Criminal Code of Ukraine - disorderly conduct with audacity and cynicism conducted by a group of people with the use of a firearm and with subject fit or previously prepared for causing bodily harm.
