"Two persons have just attacked me in Shumenskyi [neighborhood]. They have thrown me to the ground and beaten me up. They were on the watch for me near a parking lot. I have called the police," Censor.NET reports citing the journalist’s post on Facebook.
He later wrote that the assailants were two bearded men.
"They fled in a car with temporary license plates after beating me up. I have told the police all the details. They were beating me without saying a single word. I link [the attack] to my professional activities. I have survived the attack only because I am always ready for such a development and I managed to tuck myself up in time," the journalist said.
