"Our National Squad activist, Yurii Malimonov, has been smashed in the head. We are now at the surgery department. Yura [a common diminutive of 'Yuriy'] was attacked from behind, sprayed with tear gas and smashed in the head with brass knuckles; his jaw is broken," chief of the Pavlohrad arm of the National Squad Party Denys Sereda wrote on Facebook on Monday, Oct. 29, Censor.NET reports citing UNIAN.
Sereda says a probable cause behind the attack is the fight against drug advertising. No other details of the incident are known.
