Among the sensational details:
She insists that she knows the connection between her attackers and state
authorities. However, Chornovol said she cannot divulge the link now in order
not to compromise a parallel investigation that is being conducted in addition
to the official one which has led to the arrest of five suspects.
She said that nobody knew she
was going to be driving home just before the attack. She made the decision
after she already left work and she told no one, not even her family. She was
escorted to her car and her colleagues made sure she wasn’t being followed, so Chornovol
assumes that a tail was put on her later. She’s not sure when it happened, but
noticed the tail only when she was turning towards the village of Hora in Kyiv
She was followed by two cars. Chornovol
decided to return to Maidan (Independence Square) and tried to get rid of the
tail on the village streets that are very familiar to her. She succeeded only
partially: one car was lost, but the other one went on following.
