“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 described some of the circumstances of her attack, which was partially recorded by a video register installed in her car. The parts of the recording released by the opposition show how an off-road vehicle rams into Chornovol’s car as she drives home. She remained silent during the attack.
