 The Head of Batkivschyna Oblast HQ Severely Beaten in Kirovohrad

Deputy Valeriy Kalchenko, the head of Batkivschyna oblast HQ, was attacked in Kirovohrad.

Batkivschyna press service reports that the information came from her colleague deputy Serhiy Sas.

He informed that Kalchenko was hospitalized and put six stitches on the head. Right now he is in shock and "he obviously has a serious concussion".

The assault took place on Sunday around 9 p.m. when the deputy was leaving his apartment. "When he was leaving he saw a strong built young man moving towards him and when they were close the young man threw a powerful blow to the head. Valeriy has a dissected eyebrow. The doctors put six stitches. And he has a head injury," said Sas.

Sas is confident that Kalchenko was attacked due to his political activities since his bill boards advertise the fact that the oblast fell from 5th to 26th place by social economic development indicators. "Kirovohrad authorities are confused: they are afraid to lose the elections, they see their ratings dropping and they resort to crime," stated Sas.
