Police reported that a 32-year-old Russian man had stated that six unidentified people in masks and camouflage had beaten him and his friend at Kreshchatik metro station.
“Unidentified offenders took two notebooks, a mobile phone, cash of 12,000 hryvnas (around $1,500) and documents,” police said. Medical personnel reported that the man had face injuries and brain concussion and that his friend had sustained a closed head injury, brain concussion and facial injuries and bruises.
