Translated by Ollie Richardson & Angelina Siard


Whilst in one of the cities of Ukraine during the Tomos tour, the president of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko batted out a phone from the hands of a Ukrainian who was filming him. This was reported by the journalist Anatoly Shary on his YouTube video blog.

In the footage at his disposal it is seen how Poroshenko walks along the street with security guards, periodically stopping to take selfies with people. At some point a young man approaches him, addresses Poroshenko, obviously about to ask him a question, and films the president with his phone. At this moment Poroshenko harshly knocks the phone out of the person whose filming’s hands.

In addition, the young man captured how after the incident police officers approached him and checked his data and personal belongings. The hero of the video presented him with the name of the character of the Leo Tolstoy novel “Anna Karenina” Vronsky. After unsuccessfully searching for his name in the database, one of the law enforcement officers called the man a provoker and a Russian separatist.
