Just after 9 p.m. two
unknown male assailants assailed Kharkiv EuroMaidan co-organizer Dmitry Pylypets,
stabbing him four times, while he was walking on Ivanova Street near the
apartment where he currently resides, reported online news site MediaPort,
whose editor spoke with Pylypets some 30 minutes after the incident.

“About a half an hour ago, I was attacked on Ivanova Street. Two
attackers beat me, and I was stabbed about four times with a knife,” Pylypets
told MediaPort. “People who were driving by saw that I needed help, stopped and
took me to the emergency room.” 

It is unclear who exactly
attacked Pylypets and what their motive might have been, but activists told the
Kharkiv-based civic organization Maidan that they believe the city’s mayor,
Gennady Kernes, to be behind the attack.
