Censor.NET Chief Editor Yurii Butusov wrote on Facebook.

"A gang posting fake real estate lease announcements on OLX has been acting in Kyiv for more than a month. They offered great deals, so people would call them, sign fake contracts, they would take money and rob them....

"The gang's 'office' was at Mezhyhirska Street. But yesterday these bastards decided to fool a volunteer ATO veteran. And he is a unique person, a caring and real patriot, who didn't turn his back on it and did not spare his time to fight for justice. He came to police and was testifying as a victim all night," Butusov wrote.
