ODESSA, June 17. /TASS/. Unknown persons have attacked and beaten Vera Shevchenko, one of the leaders of the People’s Rada of Bessarabia, the organization’s press service said on Wednesday.
"Attackers were waiting for the woman near her house and, taking advantage of the fact that she was alone, they struck her to the ground and beat her," the press service said. "Relatives of the victim said that there were at least four attackers. Beating a woman is the most humiliating thing possible. We reserve the right to punish those guilty," states the organization.
Shevchenko received threats from Right Sector activists who repeatedly broke into the organization’s office, exerted psychological pressure on the people working there and distributed offensive pamphlets.
National minorities in the Odessa Region have set up the People’s Rada of Bessarabia organization in April this year. The organization brings together seven national communities prevalent in the Odessa Region - Bulgarian, Gagauz, Russian, Ukrainian, Romanian, Moldovan and Polish.
