You're reading: Crime against all

For the vicious July 4 assault on Korshunova, Landik deserves to go to prison. His crime was caught on videotape in the Luhansk restaurant where – apparently after she spurned the older married man’s advances – he dumped a drink on her and punched her, before dragging her around the restaurant by her hair.

Landik was a Luhansk City Council member at the time, while his father is a powerful national lawmaker with the pro-presidential Party of Regions.
