Later, Tetiana said that she was driving home to the village of Hora when she noticed a car following her. “She took an abrupt turn back to Boryspil but the car began to push her out of the road. After this, it hit her car several times. She stopped. Two men got out of the car and broke her car window. She jumped out of her car and tried to run away. The men chased after and beat her,” Nayem said.
