“I felt my nose sinking in, I felt it being destroyed under the blows,” Chornovol recalled during her interview to 1+1 TV channel. She says she did not resist, just stood there with her arms down while her attackers continued to hit her. She said they must have believed she was dead, and that’s why they left her lying by the road.

Chornovol was beaten on Dec. 25, when she was traveling home to a Kyiv suburb by car. She said she noticed she was being followed, and thought she was going to be arrested. But then the car that chased her started to ram into her vehicle, and she realized it was an attack, she said.

Chornovol is starting to recover after the attack, which is currently investigated by the police. She has been staying
in a private Kyiv hospital since her attack and undergoing treatment
for her injuries, including concussion of the brain, a broken nose
and damage to her face.
