During a court hearing on Dec. 13, Roman Landik -- on trial for allegedly beating a young woman in an attack caught on videotape -- appeared to have a breakdown and started screaming demands that he be shot since he "cannot take it anymore'. "

Then he lashed out at his victim. "She (Maria Korshunova) is going to the dentist to treat her teeth, and I have eight cavities in my teeth. When will I get treated?"

Because it is still newsworthy. This is the Poster Boy for what is wrong with your country and POR. The comments of his father (and his behavior) aggrivate the situation. Some might say they both deserve punishment. It is the example of the father that leads to such things (often). This apple did not fall far from the tree.

I have noticed that no one complained that this restaurant was full of men who didn't helped this woman. Four guys appeared to be playing cards while she was being assaulted directly in front of them. The waitress was still serving the girl's table as the woman was dragged ascross the room. That would leave me to believe that things like this happen all the time. Which means the society has bigger problems than a spoiled rich guy.

This whole situation with Landik sums up the state of affairs in Ukraine.

1. Criminal. 2. Mafia State. 3. Buy your way out of trouble.

4. Never learn from mistakes. 5. Carry on as normal.

6. Continue to be very sick, criminal, country who are not wanted in Europe.

Ummm, actually, since you mentioned it -

On December 13, 2011,during a court session, Landik started shouting.

Among other pearls of wisdom - &quot;The entire country is crazy - or send me to the psychiatric unit.&quot;

And -

&quot;I have a small child.&quot;

And -

&quot;Korshunova [the female victim] goes to the dentist, but I have 8 holes in my teeth.&quot;

&quot;Better that you should shoot me than keep me here.&quot;

Landik beats up camera: exclusive report!

Landik, the son of Ukrainian oligarch Volodymyr Landik, struck a camera at court today while on trial over his assault of Maria Korshuova.

After the trial, Landik accused the camera of assaulting him, and that his attack was to restrain the camera from further attacking him. Landik also stated that the camera, one of many at the event, had singled him out and was constantly 'watching' him before the assault occurred.

Footage of the assault clearly shows Landik hitting and damaging the camera, causing severe concussion and a loss of battery. However, Landik's father states that the video footage is clearly a fraud.

Landik is offering to pay Hr 25,000 to the camera in an attempt to stave off a lawsuit by the camera for damages.

Cheap bastard. I hope the camera holds out for at least Hr 250,000.

UPDATE

Landik's father offered the camera Hr 50,000 to &quot;tell the truth in court.&quot;

Both of the Landiks demanded that a criminal investigation be opened against the camera for &quot;exceeding the government.&quot;

Landik, Jr. started shouting that he would rather be shot than be held in court.

The camera responded that it had already tried to shoot video of Landik, Jr., and that Landik, Jr. is a liar, because he really didn't want any video shot of him.

News Flash:

Camera involved in Landik case destroyed in mysterious car accident.

A camera accused of hitting Landik Jr. was destroyed in a mysterious car accident today. The event occurred shortly after an alleged meeting between the camera and Landik Sr. where Landik Sr. urged the camera to tell the truth regarding the alleged assault made by Landik Jr. on the camera. It is believed that 20 minutes after the camera turned down a Hr. 50,000 offer to tell the truth.

The accident, which destroyed the camera, was said to involve a stolen Mercedes.

In other news, Landik Sr. is offering to not run anyone off the road who is willing to say a nice thing about him or his son.

There is an old saying: &quot;Power corrupts; absolute power corrupts absolutely&quot;. Once again this adage has come to play in the most vicious way in the &quot;modern&quot; Ukraine of today. The affair involving Roman Landyk and indirectly his father Volodymyr is a nauseating symptom of a greater problem that has permeated the Party of Regions. (Note: Certain members of other Parties in Ukraine are not immune from this defect but are currently less pronounced). The combination of ever increasing power and wealth has been instrumental in the promotion of arrogance and lawlessness particularly within the Ukrainian establishment and especially within the Government and its Party of power. Only a massive movement from the people of Ukraine opposing this oppression coupled with a new morality and a new Constitution can rid the motherland from the governance of depraved derelicts. May God have mercy on Ukraine and its people!

I think even in Lviv you might be able to find a man who will beat you. Ukraine has 7 times as many women killed by intimate partners (per capita) than USA. And the ratio is probably even higher if compared to Western Europe.
