Amnesty International in Ukraine reports that Zahorovko says he went to the demonstration to see historical events with his own eyes. He was beaten by the riot police, receiving numerous injuries including to the retina and a rib fracture. AI reports that he is being held in the SIZO [detention unit] and urgently requires an operation.
