Prominent investigative journalist and EuroMaidan activist Tetyana Chornovol was attacked in the early hours of Saturday morning in Boryspil (near Kyiv).† She was driving towards the village of Hora when another car forced her to the side of the road. †There are slightly different versions: Mustafa Nayem seems to have spoken to her at around 3 a.m. and writes on facebook that she noticed she was being followed, and turned back towards Boryspil. †It was then that the other car began ramming her and forcing her off the road. It appears that there were 2 assailants who set to beating her. †The pictures unfortunately speak for themselves.†

Chornovol is well-known for her investigative journalism on, among other things, the corrupt schemes behind the privatization of Viktor Yanukovychís controversial residence at Mezhyhirya.† Last year, frustrated by Yanukovychís continuing failure to keep his promise and show journalists the reportedly sumptuous and increasingly top-secret residence, she climbed into the grounds and managed to take photos before being caught.

On Friday she published photos and information about the anything but modest home of the current Interior Minister, Vitaly Zakharchenko. †The title reads: This is where a butcher [literallyexecutioner) lives. †The photos are well-worth viewing blogs.pravda.com.ua
