However, Kyiv police dispute the allegation,
saying that the two men were seen exiting the hospital on their own.
Lebedeva said Lutsenko, 35, who wasn’t acquainted with
Verbytsky, drove him to the hospital to get treated for injuries suffered in
clashes with police on Hrushevskoho Street.
When Verbytsky, 51, was accepted to the ophthalmology
department at the clinic, Lutsenko was kidnapped while waiting in the hallway.
Soon after, Verbytsky was carried off, she said.
