The authorities publicly gave promises to find the perpetrators, but “forgot” about them after the public interest disappeared. This is stated in the report of the human rights organization Amnesty International Ukraine, Hromadske reports.
According to the organization estimates, during 2018 more than 50 attacks on activists and human rights activists took place in Ukraine.
