Volodymyr Maralov, a member
of Road Control, was shot with a Makarov pistol at approximately 11 p.m. on Dec. 21 on Shevchenko Square in Kyiv. The bullet lodged six centimeters inside
his body. It was successfully removed in an operation and he was released from a
hospital on Dec. 22.

After Maralov was shot, the
assailants burned his car, the group’s website says.

Kyiv police spokesperson
Olha Bilyk said the incident is being investigated for hooliganism and property
damage, adding that “every possible motive is being considered, even one that
relates to the group’s professional activity” of monitoring and investigating
alleged traffic police violations.
