You're reading: Landik’s victim complains of ‘lies’ as he lashes out against her
on social media

Korshunova, a 20-year-old woman from Lugansk who used to work as a model, told the Kyiv Post that the July 4 incident changed her life. “I was waiting to hear from two big modeling agencies. But after the whole scandal and all the lies that were spread on the Internet about me, they cut all communication,” Korshunova said, adding that she currently is jobless and “clueless about what to do next in life.” Korshunova said that while she has recovered physically from the assault, she has a lot to cope with emotionally.

“It is very hard psychologically to come to the court hearing every day and listen to all the lies about me and what happened that night. The defendant says that the video is fraud, that I attacked first, that he was only protecting himself. They completely change the sequence of the events," she said. "I think they are trying to drag out the process.”

Landik, the 37-year-old son of a Ukrainian lawmaker, is charged with assaulting Korshunova in a Lugansk restaurant. He has exhibited bad behavior since the assault and charges.
