In France, a former Ukrainian soldier beat up two refugees ... from Ukraine.
The conflict took place over the weekend in the Alpes-Maritimes. Two women (mother and daughter) from Ukraine reported the attack. They mistook the attacker for a Russian. According to local media, it turned out that the man is a former Ukrainian military man. He is 33 years old, and 7 months ago he came to France and retrained as a bodyguard. Because of the Russian speech, he mistook women for Russians.
The 33-year-old man justified his actions by saying that, in his opinion, women insulted him. He called the blows “slaps”. However, local media journalists who saw footage from CCTV cameras write that the attack was brutal. The man is ready to pay compensation to the victims. The trial will take place on November 17. So far, the attacker has been released. He is forbidden to contact the victims. The Ukrainian's passport was confiscated so that he could not leave the territory of France.
